Blupura is always seeking new technologies and environmentally-friendly solutions, and this year, as usual, is pleased to introduce its latest innovations.
For the first time in history, Blupura has developed a water dispenser that works with artificial intelligence, to serve large public areas – such as airports, train stations and amusement parks – where many people, trying to refill their water bottles, often find themselves facing slippery floors, dirty water dispensers and out-of-order machines.
Unico is the solution to all these issues. Through artificial intelligence, it detects the water bottle, automatically starts the water distribution and stops once the container is filled, or when the container is removed by the user.
This is intended to reduce water waste, especially when the user does not know how to use a water dispenser. In addition, the drip tray with a splashproof V-wire stainless steel grid has been designed to avoid water leaks and reduce the possibility of wet and slippery floors.
The second innovation of the year is Blujuice, the first post mix dispenser made by Blupura. Thanks to the mix of still or sparkling water with concentrates of juices, tea and other soft drinks, that are stored in bag-in-box – very easy to recycle – Blujuice sensitively reduces the consumption of single-use drinks containers in environments like canteens, breakfast rooms and offices breaking areas.
Moreover, equipped with the IoT technology, achievable via license, allows one to get remotely connected to monitor the main parameters of the installed cooler and manage the levels of consumables, and plan the interventions, thus reducing useless trips.
Designed and manufactured in Italy, its body is entirely made of stainless steel and white tempered glass. Its display of seven inches is user-friendly and can be used to reproduce screensavers and other publicity videos.
Speaking of the Internet of Things (IoT), Blupura is pleased to present its most revolutionary innovation IoTlink, a professional and efficient system that allows industry professionals and insiders to manage any chiller remotely – it’s no longer imagination.
Blupura’s IoTlink is a technological device the size of a router: once installed on the device, even on non-Blupura brands, it is capable of seizing and sending essential information about its overall status to the IoT platform (available by the end of the year): location, machine CO2 level, UV lamp status, consumption, doses and water temperatures.
Varied features differ depending on the model under consideration: the ‘basic’ one, with Wi-Fi connectivity, allows you to control water consumption, CO2 and UV; the ‘plus’ one also integrates an anti-flooding system, TDS sensor, and water and ambient temperature sensors.
Viewing the data is simple and straightforward. Just connect from a computer or tablet to Blupura’s IoT, and in a few clicks you can access the platform to view:
The advantages? Several…both for maintenance operators and for the end customer: not only will it be more immediate to organise and plan any intervention, but also remote advice or assistance can be more immediate and effective.
So, three amazing innovations will revolutionise the lives of all of us with a sustainable impact. As always, less plastic is cool.
