Xylem beverage dispense technologies on tap at NRA 2015. Flojet expands cold and hot beverage dispensing product portfolio with four new products.

CHICAGO — May 13, 2015 — Better beverages start with better water. From May 16 to 19, Xylem Inc. will highlight new products and technologies for improving beverage dispense at the 2015 National Restaurant Association show in Chicago at McCormick Place. At Booth 3801, the company will feature its comprehensive Flojet product portfolio, emphasizing the importance of constant pressure and consistent, quality water for beverage dispensing systems.

“Today’s restaurateurs and beverage purveyors demand technologies that enable them to create an unforgettable experience with every single cup,” said David Webber, Regional Segment Marketing Director, Americas, Xylem’s Applied Water Systems business unit. “Flojet filtering and dispensing products are at the core of those taste experiences and our updated portfolio further delivers on that commitment.”

At NRA, Flojet will showcase four advanced innovations for hot and cold beverage dispense, including new and updated products that help improve performance and lower product lifetime costs. The new pumps are easy to customize for a variety of applications.

  • Solenoid Pumps —The Flojet Solenoid Pump product line has been extended to provide a compact solution for a variety of low-flow, high-pressure applications, including espresso machines. The pumps are available in food-grade plastic and brass corrosion-resistant body options to accommodate various liquids. The pumps also are UL, CE and VDE certified, making them viable for any global environment.
  • 5000 Series Bottled Water System — The updated 5000 Series Bottled Water System pumps bottled water for coffee makers, refrigerator-based water dispensers/ice-makers, espresso carts and portable sinks, providing a quality solution for portable applications. The quieter and more compact 5000 series offers different size connections for inlet and outlet tubes for more intuitive and stronger friction fit connections to power supplies and float sensors used on suction wand assembly.
  • U Series Bag-in-Box (BIB) — The new U Series BIB air-operated dispensing pump’s integrated, modular construction and durable design, saves space and operating costs. It also decreases assembly and installation time when building complete back-room packages. The air-operated pump, inspired by the most reliable BIB pump platform available for the market, provides favorable lifetime costs. It handles all syrup viscosities, including high-yield syrups, with ease for run lengths of up to 100 feet to maintain top-performance in any standard installation.
  • Mini Air-Operated Diaphragm Pump — The upgraded Mini Air-Operated Diaphragm Pump has a smaller footprint, making it ideal for compact countertop-dispense applications. Providing a consistent flow, the diaphragm pump is capable of handling standard syrup viscosities and non-pulp juice concentrates.

Flojet provides solutions for water supply, filtration, water boosting and beverage dispense applications. For more information about Xylem’s presence at NRA 2015, stop by Booth 3801 or visit foodservice.xylem.com.
