As the growth of the POU market continues, customers are increasingly citing concerns about sanitisation and contamination as their main points of concern with Point-of-Use Watercoolers.

With the FMax POU, you can offer customers a watercooler that reduces the chance of microbiological contamination by 98% with our ground-breaking Direct Dispense system, as well as offering them all the benefits of our most complete cooler ever made.

Sanitisation also takes a matter of seconds, which means you can sanitise 40% more coolers per day without the need for chemicals, complex training or equipment.

» Sanitise 40% More Coolers Per Day
Developed in 2008, our Direct Dispense system is our latest technological advancement that reduces the time and costs associated with sanitisation of POU watercoolers.

Only available in our FMax POU and unlike other methods of sanitisation which require time consuming and skilled maintenance, our Direct Dispense system can be easily changed in less than 30 seconds - meaning over the course of 1 day you can sanitise up to 40% more Water Coolers when compared to alternative methods of sanitisation.

» Reduces Contamination Risk By 98%
Direct Dispense is a ground breaking new technology for POU watercoolers. As with normal POU coolers, water is supplied directly from the mains water supply which has been disinfected (typically with chlorine in the UK) to remove bacteria and ensure safe water reaches the public.

In typical coolers systems such as Fixed Reservoir, UV and Direct Chill, water is filtered as it enters the unit before being deposited in a large reservoir - as it is now chlorine free, all of the water that has been deposited in the cooler - typically about 2.5 litres - loses it's antibacterial properties, and therefore becomes susceptible to bacterial contamination.

Volume of Water Open to Contamination
With Direct Dispense however, the amount of water that is susceptible to contamination is reduced by more than 98% - this is because the water supply is not filtered before it enters the cooler - but just before the point of dispense.

Alternative methods such as Direct Chill still have approx 500ml open to contamination, whilst UV filtration systems are ineffective at cleaning all parts of the cooler such as pipes and dispense taps and therefore still have about 60ml of water susceptible to contamination.

Direct Dispense has the lowest volume of susceptible water of all these methods at just 30ml - the result is a system which gives a 98% reduction in the possibility of bacterial contamination - offering you and your customers complete peace of mind and yet more industry leading technology from Ebac.

» The Benefits of Direct Chill Without the High Costs
Direct Chill is becoming an increasingly popular method of dispensing water in POU water coolers. The attraction of the system is that the drinking water isn't stored in a reservoir prior to drinking - reservoirs have air above the water which makes an ideal place for bacteria to grow and allows water to go stale.

Our Direct Dispense system has the exact same benefits - water does not come into contact with air until dispense which keeps it cleaner and less prone to contamination.

The main drawback of Direct Chill is that it is inefficient in comparison to Direct Dispense - the drinking water in a Direct Chill system is cooled by passing it through a sub-cooled liquid (usually water). If drinking water is wanted at around 5ºC, the cooling water must be colder than this at about 0ºC.

This water is cooled by a refrigeration system and it takes approximately 25% more energy to cool the water to 0ºC compared to cooling to 5ºC as in Direct Dispense - which means the Direct Chill system costs more to run.

» Unrivalled Energy Efficiency
Energy Efficiency is becoming of increasing importance to Watercooler customers - in a recent study we found that 76% of facility managers would be 'Much More Likely' to purchase a unit that was more energy efficient than competitors.

Unlike competitor models, our industry award winning Hot Tank in our FMax works like a vacuum flask and features an extra layer of insulation to ensure than it retains it's heat - it is therefore heated less frequently, and as a result is 30 times more energy efficient than other Hot Tanks.

Customers will save around £32 per cooler each year on running costs - so a medium size business with 5 coolers will save over £150 each year. As well as financial savings, customers will also be reducing their Carbon Footprint - an increasingly important fact.

» Good Looks that Last
Customers are increasingly demanding a Watercooler that fits in with their modern office, and the FMax POU is the perfect cooler to meet their requirements.

Designed to be stylish, modern and practical - the FMax POU is built from ultra durable ABS Polymer. This exceptional durability - four chassis can support the weight of a vehicle - means that the cooler will take what ever your worst customer throws at it - it will never rust, and will therefore save you time and money in repair and replacement costs.

The FMax POU also features a choice of 8 changeable side panels, meaning you can win more customers by offering a customised cooler to suit their own office, and you will also save money on replacements as damaged panels can be easily interchanged without having to replace the entire cooler.

» Temperature Combinations
3 solid metal dispense levers offering a choice of Cold, Ambient or Hot water - more choice for your customers to increase their overall water consumption.

» High Dispense Point
Customers have easier access to water with our High Level Dispense Point - no stooping or bending is required to dispense water.

» Duplex Dispense Nozzle
Prevents contamination - customers fingers and hands can never come into direct contact with the point of water dispense.

» Drip Tray Evaporation
Drips from the dispense nozzle are taken to a reservoir located on the compressor at the base of the cooler - and harmlessly evaporates due to the natural heat generated by the compressor.

» Heat Resistant Plastic
Present around areas of electrical circuitry, Heat Resistant Plastic removes the risk of catching fire and ensures stringent European safety standards are met.

» Built In Wheels
Means that the FMax POU can easily be transported from one location to another safely, and with no heavy lifting required.
