The Tyent USA Under Counter Extreme 9000T enables users to alter the levels of acidity or alkalinity of tap water with a one-touch process.
We’ve already found companies such as Activeion pushing boundaries in the use of ionized water with its Ionator device for picking up more dirt and killing harmful germs. Now the Tyent USA Under Counter Extreme 9000T enables businesses and homeowners to alter the levels of acidity or alkalinity of tap water using ionization. Using filters and electrodes connected to a computer chip, the faucet provides water with seven different levels of pH. The in-built touchscreen interface shows a button labelled H2O for pH level seven, as well as three more buttons for the three levels of alkaline water available. All of these options are drinkable. There are also three buttons for the three levels of acidic water – used for industrial cleaning – which are not potable. A turbo button also supplies a highly acidic or alkaline water for cleaning, sterilizing and disinfecting. The faucet is equipped with two separate taps to ensure the drinkable water does not come into contact with water not suitable for human consumption. Once the level is set, users press the ‘on’ button to start the water supply, pressing it again to turn it off. The device also has warning voices that guide the user through safe operation. While the device could find use in homes – offering different levels of ionized water as well as the ability to get rid of difficult stains in the kitchen or bathroom – the Tyent USA Under Counter Extreme 9000T is designed for use in food and drink outlets who could make the most use of a single source for different types of water. Those in the food and drink industry – one to get involved in? Spotted by: Dietfried Globocnik
