Taking hydration to the next level – instantly dispenses filtered boiling water, chilled and sparkling. These innovative taps come in a range of styles and finishes to suit any kitchen.
A Boiling and chilled water tap can add function to any kitchen as well as free up space on your benchtop. These taps are available in a range of finishes and can even be designed to blend into your sink.
Boiling water is a simple and effective method for disinfecting tap water. When water is heated to its boiling point (212 degrees Fahrenheit or 100 degrees Celsius), it kills most pathogenic organisms that cause waterborne illnesses. Boiling water does not require a large energy input, so it can be used in areas without electricity or fossil fuels.
Boil water should be used for drinking, washing hands and preparing food. Water that is boiled should be brought to a full rolling boil for one minute, and then allowed to cool before use. When health officials issue a boil advisory, they recommend that all drinking water be boiled prior to use.
The boiling process begins when the molecules in a liquid change to gas and rise from discrete points on a surface, called nucleation. As the bubbles expand, they push on the liquid from all directions and increase the surface area exposed to the atmosphere. The resulting increase in heat releases thermal energy, which raises the temperature of the liquid.
The boiling process may be accelerated by the addition of heat or by increasing the speed at which water is moving through pipes, which increases the velocity of the molecules. The boiling point of water varies with conditions such as the pressure in a vessel and the elevation at which it is being boiled. However, these differences are not important for most boil water response guidelines.
Many large commercial buildings and industrial facilities require constant cooling to keep equipment working properly. Servers, variable-frequency drives, spindle motors and other technologies all generate heat that needs to be cooled to ensure peak performance. These cooling systems account for a huge percentage of HVAC energy consumption in these larger facilities.
A chilled water system is often the best option for these large-scale applications. Unlike a residential air conditioning system that pumps in cool air, this type of water is chilled on site using chillers or tanks. Chilled water is then distributed by a loop piping system to bridge interface systems inside individual buildings. These chilled water systems distribute the water to cooling towers and fan coils within air-handling units to cool ducts for distribution throughout the building. As the water cools, it also absorbs heat energy from the ducts and cooling towers. Once the chilled water reaches its maximum temperature, it is returned to the chiller plant to be refrigerated again.
This process can be repeated on a continuous basis to deliver the required cooling capacity to the buildings. Compared to a traditional air conditioning system, this solution is more efficient, environmentally responsible and sustainable for the long term. It also offers economies of scale and back-up capability for uninterrupted operation. Moreover, comprehensive chilled water system design leveraging modern improvements in chiller efficiency and industry guidance for optimized flow rates, pipe sizing, valve selection and cooling capacity unlocks higher system performance without raising costs.
There are many reasons to enjoy sparkling water – it’s refreshing on a hot summer day, tastes great with cordial and can be mixed with lemon juice for a zesty refreshing drink. It can also be used in cooking, cleaning and other household tasks.
Sparkling water, known as seltzer or club soda, is made by carbonating filtered water with carbon dioxide gas under high pressure. This produces small bubbles that give the water a fizzy flavour. This type of drinking water does not have any added ingredients, such as sugars, sweeteners or artificial flavourings and hydrates the body in the same way that still water does.
While sparkling water has the benefits of hydration and can be a good substitute for sugary drinks, it is important to check the label for added ingredients. Too much sodium, phosphorus or citric acid, for example, can cause changes in tooth enamel.
Three-in-one taps offer filtered instant boiling, chilled and sparkling water all in one stylish appliance that is a sleek addition to any kitchen. They can be installed over your sink or on a bench as a stand-alone appliance, and they provide you with the same functionality of a kettle or jug of bottled water while saving space on your bench. These taps are perfect for the modern kitchen and come in a range of designs and colours to suit your style.
Using filters to remove impurities from water is common practice, especially for households that consume a lot of drinking water. This is because tap water can contain a variety of minerals and bacteria that don’t always cause harm but can change the taste or even lead to an unpleasant odor. Filter taps use either carbon or reverse osmosis to improve the taste of water and reduce contaminants that are found in drinking water. When choosing a filter for your tap, be sure to check the label and search for NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) certification to see which contaminants it is certified to eliminate or reduce.
NSF certification is typically based on whether the tap can eliminate or reduce specific chemicals and organisms that are known to be harmful to people. Depending on the type of filter you choose, some may also remove other undesirable elements such as unpleasant or unpleasant odours or flavours.
Instant boiling and chilled filtered water taps are an essential kitchen feature for many homes.
