DVS launch new hygienic no-touch tap

14 September 2011

Designed with hand hygiene in mind, the Aquarius Therma-tap from Dart Valley Systems is ideal for food manufacturing and catering sites.

This brand new tap combines hand-hygiene features, alongside simple isolation features for servicing and a stylish design, meeting the needs of hygiene conscious environments.

The patented* isolation feature allows the tap to be removed from the wall without the removal of panels, and exchanged with a spare tap to ensure that tap stations are always functional, as well as reducing site-based service times for facilities teams. The easy to access in-line filter and thermostatic mixing valve can then be serviced quickly and easily away from the site with minimal disruption.

As well as unique servicing features, the Aquarius Therma-tap is designed for easy day-to-day cleaning and use, incorporating an ergonomic integrated downward facing sensor with adjustable range as well as an automatic purge facility.

The Aquarius Therma-tap also includes a mechanism to ensure that any hot water is mixed before being delivered to the users’ hands, ensuring that there is no ‘hot spike’ effect when placing hands under the tap. Additionally, the tap body stays cool during use, even with prolonged hot running water.

*Patent pending
