The WL-380 Firewall water cooler has 3 core technologies which mean that what you get out of your machine is much better than what goes in:
- High Performance Filtration: Our filtration technology removes common water contaminants and chlorine to dramatically improve water taste and odor.
- Firewall™ Advanced UV Purification: Firewall ultraviolet light purifies the water to 99.9999% bacteria free. It acts as a final barrier to pathogens right at the point of dispense, as validated by NSF/ANSI-55 Class A UV and NSF/P231 certification testing performed by the Water Quality Association (WQA). As an added layer of defense, the Firewall UV sanitizes the dispensing nozzle to limit cross contamination between users.
- BioCote® Antimicrobial Protection: The WL380 water treatment system is BioCote protected to provide an effective barrier against microbes like bacteria and mold, which may cause odors or staining.*
Firewall™ Technology is at the heart of the WL-380 Firewall Tower treatment process. Firewall™ Technology with ultraviolet light purifies the water to 99.9999% bacteria free. It acts as a final barrier to pathogens right at the point of dispensing. The design allows for higher UV exposure which reduces bacteria, viruses and parasites that may be in the water, purifying the water up to 99.9999% of any bacteria 100% of the time. Point of dispense purification keeps the dispense nozzle free from external contamination as well as purifying the water as it fills your cup, making the freshest water possible. The Firewall™ technology has been tested and certified by the Water Quality Association to NSF/ANSI-55 Class A UV and NSF/P231 US EPA standard for microbiological water.
Water is the most consumed food & beverage product. Yet it is the least certified. The meat, seafood, dairy and many of the grocery products we consume are subject to strict food safety guidelines, inspection and standards. Even though the same rigorous controls should be expected of water, a surprising number of under certified, low quality water coolers make it into the market. A POU water dispenser is not just a glorified water chiller. It should purify your water at the POU (Point of Use) – this requires sophisticated technology and in depth knowledge of your incoming water. Water borne diseases are normally not evident to the eye. Effects can be long term from lead, chlorine, etc. Each year there were many cases of illnesses caused by drinking contaminated water. Most are minor and go unreported. Low grade POU (not adequately certified) can even worsen the quality of tap water (sitting in cold tanks without UV purification etc.) The only way to guarantee quality water is to filter and purify at the “Point of Use” (i.e. At the point at which it is dispensed) by using an independently certified, quality POU dispenser.
