The Elkay ECH8 Remote Chiller is a remote type, electric refrigerated unit with a chilling capacity of 8.0 gallons per hour of 50°F drinking water, based upon 80°F inlet water and 90°F ambient. The Elkay ECH8 is a compact, highly efficient water chiller designed for use with any drinking fountain and connects to a bubbler, glass filler or cold water dispenser. Converts a fountain into a water cooler. Installs directly under fountain or other application, or may be located in a service area to serve a remote outlet (within 15 feet recommended).
No Lead Design:
The Elkay ECH8 is certified to be lead-free as defined by the Safe Drinking Water Act. Elkay Water Coolers are manufactured with a waterway system utilizing copper components and completely lead-free materials. The Elkay ECH8 waterways have no lead because all lead materials, such as leaded brass, have been removed. All joints are brazed using silver solder only. No lead solder is permitted. A strainer with an easily cleanable screen is provided to allow trapping and convenient removal of waterborne particulate of 140 microns and larger prior to their entry into the water cooler.
