Following Lincat’s launch of its newest generation of FilterFlow water boilers, the Lincoln-based manufacturer has detailed more about their features.
The six-strong series is said to include intuitive colour touchscreen displays, longer life filters, improved diagnostics and innovative energy saving features.
They are available to order now, as they went into full production from 1 July.
The touchscreen display is designed to make menu navigation quick and easy, with both the temperature and timer simple to adjust.
The display provides updates on the boiler’s operating status and, if required, step-by-step maintenance instructions.
The screen can also be used, on the push button dispense model, to enter a PIN code – an additional safety feature for cost sector settings.
Furthermore a new predictive eco setting on the boilers is claimed to learn from usage patterns and switches to low-energy mode for quieter periods.
This could reduce the volume of water boiled by up to 50%.
All models incorporate a screw cap indicator probe to monitor lime scale build-up, and a de-scale function to help to avoid engineer call outs.
Helen Applewhite, marketing manager of Lincat, said: “Capable of producing the highest quality filtered water around the clock, our new FilterFlow water boilers are easier to use, cheaper to run and simpler to maintain.
“Their narrower footprint saves valuable counter space without compromising capacity or performance.
“Better still, features which are typically associated with premium competitor models, such as a 7-day timer and energy saving eco-mode settings, are supplied as standard with our new generation of FilterFlow water boilers.”
Products in the new collection range from the 3kW EB3FX, which is capable of producing 31litres of high quality hot water per hour, to the 6kW EB6 twin tap model which can produce 60litres.
