Lincat has developed a new FilterFlow automatic water boiler with hands-free operation in response to Covid-19.
Helen Applewhite, marketing manager for Lincat brands, said: “We are all so aware of potential cross infection and avoiding common touch points, such as taps, are a challenge most of us now face on a daily basis. Any building which has a number of people using its facilities needs a safe and reliable source of hot water for drinks.
“In response we have developed the new EB3FX/WAVE. Fitted with an advanced sensor, hand contact with the boiler is totally eliminated. All the user needs to do is to simply wave their hand in front of the unit and a pre-programmed serving of water is quickly and safely dispensed.”
Based on Lincat’s EB3FX, the EB3FX/WAVE also offers the same features, with a capacity of 31litres of hot filtered water per hour from a narrow 250mm footprint. The eco setting and seven-day timer are designed to conserve energy and minimise running costs.
The EB3FX/WAVE is constructed from stainless steel, which is said to be hygienic, practical and attractive.
The unit will be supplied with a 2-year parts and labour warranty.
