The Elkay VRC8S Water Cooler is a self-contained, wall hung electric refrigerated unit. The Elkay VRC8S is a vandal-resistant unit for use in high demand locations where vandalism may occur and is rated for indoor or outdoor use. The Elkay VRC8S has stainless steel construction that provides a vandal-resistant enclosure and a heavy duty vandal-resistant push button control. Optional perforated stainless steel louver screening prevents objects from being inserted into cooler. The Elkay VRC8S has a patented* valve with built-in flow regulator provides a constant stream from 20 to 105 psi (138 to 724 KPa) water pressure. Non-pressurized cooling tank is standard. Non-pressurized water tank is located after bubbler valve, so that tank is subject to line pressure only when push button is pressed.

No Lead Design:
The Elkay VRC8S are 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. These 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.
