In order to improve the percolation process, IMS offers a high quality coating using quartz nanotechnology, the NANOQUATRZ coating, for integrated and reinforced membrane shower screens.
- The advantage of this technology is its hydro repellent effect - water comes down in a shower of tiny drops that are uniformly distributed over the whole surface of the shower head, saturating the coffee evenly.
- The coating makes it easier to remove used coffee pods, and it also makes it easier to clean thereby rendering the antibacterial nature of the surfaces extremely effective.
- Non-stick coating made of NanoQuartzincreases the resistance to corrosion and chemical reaction.
This is a high quality Competition shower screen with an innovative and very fine membrane to get the ideal distribution of the water on the coffee in the portafilter. This very fine membrane keeps the group clean and slows the flow of water for a better and consistent extraction.
Manufactured as a non-welded single piece shower screen consisting of a special integrated membrane built inside the supporting body offering a filtering capacity of 200 microns.

💡Nanotech coating needs special care and has a finite life:
When back flushing coffee group: Remove the nanotech shower screen, before back flushing with any chemical detergent. Clean nanotech shower with water only and wipe with soft cloth.
Chemical cleaners such as Cafiza and Pulycaff can strip the "nanotech" coating.
I have been a regular IMS client and my experience with IMS showerscreen is more than positive. This time I opted for a more top end model priced almost twice other models. To be honest so far it does not live up the expectations. The flow is rather good but not perfect there are points that are clearly flushing wrong. Also compared with previous IMS filters the coffee puck does not end up dry but remains waterish. Also given the fact that the filter coating is sensitive so you can not backflush with pully or other detergents this is not a convenient maintenence showerschreen. In a nutshell it is a good showerscreen but not for 28 euros price
