OASIS and Philips Partner on Water Disinfection Technology
Water treatment products including Phillips technology unveiled at WQA Aquatech USA 2012
OASIS Intl. announced its new partnership with Philips Lighting. OASIS and Philips have partnered to integrate a unique disinfection solution in OASIS’ water coolers. Now, water dispensed from coolers can be disinfected instantly and efficiently, on-demand with the Philips InstantTrust solution and will soon be available in the OASIS KALIX water cooler, and Aqua Pointe and VersaFiller bottle fillers.
Philips InstantTrust disinfects water as it is being dispensed, up to 4 liters per minute. Its simple and quick disinfection process is ideal for water-dispensing solutions such as OASIS’ bottle refill stations and water coolers. Its unique design works independently of water temperature, disinfecting both hot and cold water on demand.
The new Philips InstantTrust solution is designed to fit point-of-use (POU) water delivery solutions, including taps, water pitchers, under-sink water filters and portable counter-top systems. OASIS and Philips will work closely to make it possible to integrate the InstantTrust into its entire product line.
First to market with InstantTrust water disinfection inside it will be the OASIS KALIX POU water cooler, Aqua Pointe and VersaFiller Bottle Fillers. Each of these units delivers refreshing water on demand and are ideal for public buildings, gymnasiums, sports complexes, hospitals, schools and offices.
“We’re very proud to be working in partnership with Philips Lighting and providing this unique, state-of-the-art UV disinfection technology in our water coolers and bottle fillers,” said John Kucharik, CEO and president of OASIS. “By adding Philips InstantTrust into our water coolers and bottle fillers we’re the only company to offer a solution that disinfects water just before it’s served. This partnership exemplifies our commitment to developing innovative water-friendly solutions that provide fresh, great-tasting, safer water for everyone, everywhere.”
“Philips is committed to enhancing people’s health and well-being, and thanks to InstantTrust, we can ensure cleaner water is always within reach, anytime, anywhere,” said Hendrik-Jan Dreuning, global marketing director UV purification for Philips Lighting. “We’re pleased to be working OASIS, a global company that offers innovative solutions for water coolers, and look forward to a rewarding partnership. Together we’ll be making safer water available for people around the world.”
