HoReCa Industry Embraces Voltea’s New Water Treatment Technology
Voltea, the global leader in electro-desalination water treatment technology, is seeing strong interest from hotels, restaurants and cafes in its new, point-of-use DiUse system for coffee, fountain drink and drinking water applications.
With DiUse, incoming water is “tuned” to the ideal salinity to match the application, and remains perfectly tuned even through variations in incoming water characteristics. DiUse is considered point-of-use because the system is installed at the point where the water source is connected to the equipment.
“Even municipal water quality varies, so the ability to deliver water that is pure with a consistently tuned taste profile regardless of these variations is tremendously valuable,” says Voltea CEO Bryan Brister. “DiUse water is perfectly suited to the application, such as water for consistently great coffee, tea or fountain drinks. We’re proud to see world-renowned establishments in Europe, the United States and beyond use DiUse to improve the quality of the beverages they serve.”
DiUse is a miniaturized version of Voltea’s industrial and commercial CapDI systems, which run with patented CapDI technology. The system monitors incoming water quality in real time, and self-adjusts performance to ensure it delivers consistent, precise water quality with improved taste.
The salt-free, chemical-free technology is a simple, two-step process wherein water flows between electrodes. The electrode surfaces are separated from the water by ion-selective membranes that allow positive or negative ions (salts) to pass. The system is tunable, allowing adjustable salt removal and continually adjusts to account for any fluctuations in feed water characteristics.
“Best-in-class hotels, restaurants and cafes are notoriously demanding when it comes to consistency of the customer experience—whether that is the perfect cup of coffee or tea, or a refreshing fountain beverage. Their embrace of Voltea’s DiUse system is proof positive of its efficacy,” concludes Brister.
Other applications for Voltea’s DiUse system include:
- Personal use water in smaller residential spaces, such as apartments
- Grocery store misters
- Mist cooling systems
- Spot-free rinse for solar panels, vehicles and dishwashers
