Since the company was created, it has been distinguished by its innovative character. This has enabled Canaletas, a company that for over 45 years designing and manufacturing all kinds of water coolers and drinking fountains, developing innovative projects and are one of the leaders in the sector.
The European Bottled Water cooler Association (EBWA) has sent a letter of congratulations to Canaletas for their efforts to protect consumers and promote the highest standards of quality and hygiene in the European industry. Canaletas was the first manufacturer of water coolers and drinking water fountains to have passed all the test proposed by the EBWA to all manufacturers. These tests have been performed by the Laboratory of Dr. Oliver Rodés, a prestigious independent laboratory in Barcelona (Spain),also a member of the Standards Committee of the EBWA.
The sanitation system used in Canaletas CANVAP Steam Sterilizer was developed by the company to eliminate any microorganisms in water coolers and drinking water fountains.
Referring to the first test, which verifies the effectiveness in eliminating biolfim, Canaletas was the first and only company to overcome this and with " Excellence ".
Similarly, Canaletas was the first company to surpass the following test, more decisive than the first and made mandatory by the EBWA. In this case the tests were applied with water contaminated with Pseudomonas Aeuriginosa, a type of highly resistant bacteria and also multiplies rapidly. This organism is one of the sources of Biolfim and due to its characteristics, suggests that once eliminated, other microorganisms have also disappeared.
Jordi Morera, CEO of the company says: "The main advantages of the CANVAP Steam Sterilizer compared to other types of sanitation is that it reduces the processing time to only four minutes, while with other systems take a minimum of at least two hours, the method is effective and easy to use, requires no preparation in relation to the technical or safety precautions as it is very safe to use and it removes all types of bacteria. "
Canaletas has positioned itself as the pioneer manufacturer to overcome the sanitation tests and are the only one to have passed them both. After these tests, conducted on bottle water coolers, the next challenge was to apply these tests to Canaletas POU Water coolers and drinking fountains, which by their nature are more complicated.
In this test, the results were just as highly satisfactory, Canaletas is now one of the few companies that can offer a satisfactory sanitation system for its entire range of water coolers and drinking water fountains.
All these achievements have led to the European Bottled Water cooler Association (EBWA) recently congratulating Canaletas.
