Cuno (Aqua-Pure) SGP165BN-T Water Filter System For Espresso 56176-01

The Aqua-PureŽ Model SGP165BN-T single-cartridge water-filtration
systems assure consistent high-quality water for espresso and
espresso-based drinks at flow rates to 1.0 gpm (3.8 lpm). A blend of
high-capacity strong and weak-acid ion-exchange resins reduces calcium
and magnesium ions to prevent hard scale formation on the heating coils
and boilers that results in energy inefficiency, downtime, and expensive
service calls. Inlet water TDS and alkalinity are also reduced. Premium
activated carbon reduces chlorine taste and odor and bitterness
associated with poor water quality. A built-in bypass directs 75% of the
inlet water through the media combination for treatment. Model
SGP165BN-T has a capacity of 719 gallons (2,722 liters) for inlet water
with 150 ppm (9 gpg) hardness.


  • Consistent great tasting espresso and espresso drinks from water with reduced hardness,
    alkalinity, TDS and chlorine taste and odor.
  • Increased lifetime and capacity from a built-in bypass that allows 25% of inlet water
    to pass through untreated.
  • NSF and/or FDA CFR-21 compliant materials.
  • Reduced hard scale formation on the heating coils by the reduction of calcium and
    magnesium ions results in improved energy effi ciency and reduced downtime and
    expensive service calls.
  • Valve-in-head design simultaneously shuts off and vents water, allowing for simple
    and virtually trouble-free cartridge change-outs without the need to shut off the
    upstream feed water.
  • Sanitary Quick Change (SQC) encapsulated cartridge design allows for fast and easy
    cartridge change-outs with a 1/4 turn.
  • 3/8" FNPT horizontal inlet and outlet ports allow direct or easily adaptable connections
    to existing plumbing lines.
  • Optional pressure gauge allows monitoring of downstream water pressure.
  • Exhausted cartridges may be incinerated for environmentally conscious


  • System includes a head assembly, integral mounting bracket, and single
    cartridge filter.
  • Optional downstream pressure gauge port in top of head assembly.
  • Inlet and outlet plumbing connections are 3/8" FNPT.
  • System incorporates an internal automatic 1/4 turn shut off valve.
  • Filter cartridge is double o-ring seal type.
  • System maximum operating pressure is 125 psi (862 kPa)
    and operating temperature 100°F (38°C).
  • Recommended service flow rate is 0.5 gpm (1.9 lpm).
  • Filter cartridges incorporate premium activated carbon media and
    strong-acid ion-exchange media in the sodium form.
  • System is NSF and/or FDA CFR-21 compliant.
  • Cartridge body is constructed from high-impact polypropylene.
  • Cartridges are sanitary in design, requiring no contact with the filter
    media during cartridge change-out.
  • Filter cartridges require no pre-activation.

Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown
quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system.

CUNO Incorporated recommends regularly scheduled maintenance and
replacement of the filter cartridge(s) in order for the product to perform
as advertised/sold. Change the filter cartridge at least every 6 months.
CUNO shall not be liable for system failures due to improper maintenance.
