Direct Chill is an advanced chilling technology that ensures your water is both cold and hygienic. Many water dispensers use reservoir cooling that stores the water in a tank and gradually brings down the temperature over time. Direct Chill systems take the water directly from the mains, rapidly chilling the water in the advanced cooling coil on its way to the dispenser tap outlet. This ensures that the water is cold, fresh and hygienic due to reduced impurity levels in the water.
The key to the Direct Chill system is the advanced cooling coil. This advanced cooling coil uses environmentally friendly R134a gas to chill the water to a sub zero temperature. The use of R134a gas is highly energy efficient, cutting the energy consumption of your water cooler dramatically.
The advanced cooling coil is situated in the well insulated Direct Chill tank. The tank is filled with water but this merely serves as a temperature regulator. The fresh filtered water we drink is located in an entirely isolated pipe that passes through this chilled tank. The water then passes through a seven metre chilling coil and out to the dispenser tap outlet, to provide you with top quality, fresh, chilled, and filtered drinking water.
With bottled water coolers, the drinking water is stored over time in an exposed tank, creating the perfect environment for bacterial growth. This tank often develops a biofilm coating of microbial matter which has been known to enter your water cooler. The isolated drinking water coil used within the Direct Chill system ensures that your water is transported directly from mains to the dispenser tap outlet, greatly reducing the chances of contamination and impurity to the water. The Direct Chill dispensers have been designed with simple and easy to use, soft touch buttons. Not only does this make it quick and simple for dispense purposes, but it also ensures that dirty hands are kept well away from the dispenser tap outlet. This helps further increase the hygienic protection of the cooler.
Direct Chill systems offer the best possible solution for drinking water dispensing, saving you money and energy, and reducing the risk of contamination within your water. If you'd like to know more about Direct Chill, and the water coolers which use it, contact us today.
