2. WaterTrail
TM
Developed in 1994, the WaterTrail™ is now the most popular
method of sanitisation in Europe. All water contact parts
are simply replaced – not cleaned – meaning 100%
sanitisation takes a matter of just seconds.
Remove bottle and open lid
Remove old WaterTrailTM
The WaterTrail™ saves you both time and money as more
coolers can be sanitised per day, and staff do not need
complex training.
Insert new WaterTrailTM
Replace bottle
Sanitise 40% More Coolers Per Day
100% Sanitisation
Unlike other methods of sanitisation which require time consuming
processes that don't always result in a fully cleaned and disinfected
watercooler, the WaterTrail™ can be easily changed, even by a child,
in less than 60 seconds. Normal methods of sanitisation take
between 20 minutes (On-site Chemical) and 5 minutes (Steam)
(see Fig 1.1). Not only do these methods take longer, but they are
also considerably more complex (with a greater margin for error)
and require additional staff training.
Our removable WaterTrail™ replaces all water contact parts and is
the only system available to offer true 100% sanitisation every time.
With the WaterTrail™, the old unit is removed from the cooler, and
the new one is inserted into place as shown in the images above.
With our WaterTrail™ system you can offer customers a sanitisation
method that appeals specifically to their requirements - with 100%
sanitisation in a matter of seconds.
This means it's easy for staff to do it right first time, every time with minimal training and minimum increase in his or her normal
duties.

On-site
Chemical
Alternative methods of sanitisation do not completely sanitise the
cooler and therefore do not meet EBWA sanitisation guidelines.
Studies have shown that chemical cleaning systems do not remove
all bacteria in the cooler, whilst Ozonation methods are ineffective
at removing biofilm build-up.

3. Hot Tank

Cooler & Vending Awards ‘Best Sustainability Initiative’ and
the Silver Award Winner for the EBWA ‘Best Environmental
Initiative’ award.
When you offer your customers the EMax - you not are not
only offering an established cooler built on reliability and
quality, but the peace of mind and fantastic reputation that
comes with Europe's best selling Watercooler.

Unrivalled Energy Efficiency
Europe’s Best Selling Watercooler
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.
Zenith (2007) predicts that over the next 5 years that UK Bottled
Watercooler sales will continue to increase from 490,000 units in
2007 to 515,000 units in 2012 (See Fig1.4). With this in mind, the
importance of offering customers an established cooler that is
proven in the market can be key to success.
Unlike competitor models, our industry award winning Hot Tank in
our EMax works like a vacuum flask and features an extra layer of
insulation to ensure than it retains its heat - it is therefore heated
less frequently, and as a result is 30 times more energy efficient
than other Hot Tanks.
Ebac did not become market leaders overnight - and the EMax has
played a large role in establishing Ebac as suppliers of the best
watercoolers in the world since it launched. With sales now totalling
over 500,000 units (and still growing), the EMax is currently in use in
every single EU country, and many more besides.
Customers will save around £32 / 40 per cooler each year on
running costs - so a medium size business with 5 coolers will save
over £150 / 190 each year. As well as financial savings, customers
will also be reducing their Carbon Footprint - an increasingly
important fact.
The reassurance to customers that comes with being able to offer
Europe's best selling watercooler is considerable - which is why 84%
of our customers choose to include the EMax in their watercooler
portfolio.

4. Good Looks That Last
Combining good looks with impeccable reliability – the EMax
features stylish curves to fit into the modern office
environment and is constructed from ultra-durable ABS
polymer to ensure it withstands many years of use and keeps
repair and replacement costs down.
To offer your customer maximum choice and reduce the costs
associated with cooler damage, the EMax is available with a
selection of 5 different fascias.
ABS Polymer Construction
Changeable Fascias
Customers are increasingly demanding a Watercooler that fits in
with their modern office, and the EMax is the perfect cooler to
meet their requirements.
The EMax also features a choice of 5 changeable fascias,
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 fascias can be easily interchanged
without having to replace the entire cooler.
Designed to be stylish, modern and practical - the EMax 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.
