Dec. 17, 2020

Many equipment manufacturers quickly pivoted to offer touchless solutions during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Quench Q8 comes in a floor-standing model and a compact countertop model.  

(King of Prussia, PA) – Quench, a Culligan company and a leading provider of filtered water solutions for businesses across the United States and Canada, has announced the launch of the new, touchless Quench Q8 bottle-free filtered water system. The Quench Q8 is a sleek, touchless, sensor-activated water cooler that connects to an existing water supply to dispense hot and cold, mineral-infused drinking water for commercial customers throughout the United States and Canada.

“With the current world environment, we are pleased to offer our customers the confidence of sanitary touchless dispensing,” said Ted Hertz, Quench’s Vice President of Product Management. “By using Position Sensitive Detector (PSD) sensors, the Q8  offers our customers reliable touchless dispensing without the concern of false dispensing from light reflections, radio waves, or even static electricity.”

In addition to the new touchless dispensing, the Quench Q8 is available as a floor-standing model that is  50” tall. allowing most users to dispense without bending down, and as a compact countertop model that fits nicely under most breakroom cabinets. Both units are fully featured with:

·      quenchWATER+, mineral-infused and electrolyte-enhanced water, on-demand through Quench’s proprietary 5-filter purification system

·       State-of-the-art in-tank LED UV-C to help maintain cleanliness and water quality

·       Antimicrobial surface protection to help maintain the cleanliness of treated surfaces, including the dispense nozzle, dispense area, and drip trays

·       Proactively scheduled preventive maintenance service

“When the Covid-19 pandemic hit we conducted customer research and learned that a touchless interface would dispel top concerns about employee health and safety. With our customers in mind, we swiftly updated our current designs to include touchless dispensing,” said John Whalen, Senior Vice President, Sales, Marketing, and Customer Service. “Our manufacturing partners were able to pivot with the PSD sensors and then fast track production so we could release the Q8 this year.”

The Quench Q8 floor-standing and countertop model can be installed on an existing water supply almost anywhere in an office building or facility and are available nationwide in the United States and Canada.
