New Tampera Hot from Blanco 3-in-1 hot tap delivers 100°C filtered water; in an instant
Quite simply, the new 3-in-1 Tampera Hot from Blanco is all that is needed for instant, beautifully filtered, 100°C boiling water at the twist of a child-safe lever; from an ultra-safe, super-hygienic and taste-free, four-litre titanium boiler.
Featuring an insulated spout, it offers all the benefits in terms of time, energy and space of a hot tap, with no need for optional extras, delivering deliciously pure cold, warm and instant boiling water from a single mixer tap which oozes engineering quality.
Blanco says it has developed this tap to beat similar specification competitors in terms of price and quality, providing absolute peace of mind.
The high-pressure boiler is made of titanium, rather than the more usual copper or stainless steel, making the system ultra-hygienic and ensuring the water is taste-free. The strong, top-grade titanium is corrosion-resistant and able to withstand the high pressures of a constant 105°C internal temperature so that all bacteria and germs are thoroughly eliminated before water is poured.
In addition, the quality of the water going in is maintained with a high-quality BWT five-stage filtration system that is fitted as standard. This purification process improves the water quality while protecting the performance of the whole system. The filter removes particles, heavy metals, and impurities that affect the taste of the water while reducing limescale, balancing the mineral content and softening the water before entering the boiler.
The system also includes a fool-proof digital Flowmeter which is a simple digital interface that displays the filter usage and audibly alerts the user when it is time to change the cartridge and also when the batteries need to be changed.
Safety-wise, the rotary control knob with a child-safe lock button must be pressed whilst simultaneously turning the knob to activate the flow of boiling water. The knob springs back to the off position as soon as it is released so the flow stops and the controlled jet through an aerator reduces spray.
Both the compact boiler and the filter are hidden away out of sight in the base cabinet saving space and the Blanco Select Compact 60/2 waste separation bin system can be housed in the same cupboard space.
"For the trade customer, we have designed a hot tap which is engineered to be better," says Simon Hart, managing director of Blanco UK. "We have thought of everything in this ingenious product; providing a really high specification product at a competitive price as standard - not with a long list of expensive optional extras. It's designed to be easy to sell and really easy to install and use in the home.
"For Blanco a la Carte customers, the Tampera Hot is also available as a sink and tap pack upgrade. You can contact your regional sales manager to find out more about the special launch prices, product specifications or the amazing display deals designed to help you put the Tampera Hot into your showroom."
Once registered, the Tampera Hot comes with a two-year guarantee and has a customer service, installation and after-sales team for absolute reassurance.
