Fun Facts about Everpure & McDonalds Restaurants

Could it be that Everpure has created the greatest commercial water filter ever made, the MC filter (EV9612-56)?  

What makes a good water filter great? The same thing that makes any product great, Integrity and caring about your customers.

If you have ever eaten at a chain restaurant, then you have more than likely tasted the water generated from this filter, and according to domestic and global sales of beverages like Coca-Cola, we all loved it!

So how did this filter become the greatest commercial food service filter of all time? It all started in 1933, Mr. CB Oliver founded a water treatment company in Chicago, Illinois, called Tested Appliances.

His own idea of a pre-coat multi-fold complex filter body was the basis for the Everpure filter of today. The multi-fold complex filter body gave the filter greater surface area, basically six times the area that you get with a standard carbon block filter.

In 1957, Tested Appliances Company changed its name to Everpure. Then in 1963, Everpure moved its headquarters to Oak Brook, Illinois to work directly with McDonald’s Corporation to perfect a water filter system for all of its stores.

That collaboration led to the T-9 water purifier that was rolled out into all McDonald’s restaurants in 1966.  In 1967, Everpure developed a unique form of microscopy purification, the Micropure multi-fold multiplexing filter body, with pre-coat technology. This technology completely revolutionized the water treatment industry.

Ever wonder what “MC” stands for? It's 'McDonald’s Cold'. 

The MC water filter is made with Micro-Pure II media that inhibits the growth of bacteria on the filter media, which can cause short life.  This is a very high capacity, high purity water filter, rated to 0.2 microns.

To put that in perspective, the human eye can only see particles down to 40 microns, The MC also removes chlorine and other offensive off tastes & odors. So now you know why a McDonald’s Coke tastes like a Coke right out of the can.

Water is 87% of McDonald’s soda and the MC filtered water is what makes it so delicious. The MC is third-party NSF 42 and 53 certified, which means it can filter out cysts like cryptosporidium and giardia.

The most recent certification is NSF 401 for the reduction of microplastics. Microplastics are tiny plastic particles from 5 mm to 1nm found throughout the environment. 

What it really means is that the restaurants that “CARE” about their customers, like McDonald’s, use the greatest filter ever made to insure that the consistent quality they want their guests to enjoy is delivered, every day of the week, in every restaurant around the world.
