Drinks vending


Drinking water quality

The beverage machine and drinks vending machine industry relies on the safe, taint-free conveyance and control of potable water in order to meet stringent regulations. Hydralectric has 30 years experience of understanding the regulations, advising OEM partners and finding solutions that help them to develop increasingly sophisticated water control systems.

We specialise in the specification and design of solenoid valves, pumps and flexible hose systems for commercial and domestic beverage machines, with particular emphasis on customer bespoke solutions. We offer manufacturers a wide range of solenoid valves that are approved by the Water Regulation Advisory Scheme (WRAS), with additional customised modifications available, including filters, inlet restrictors, NRVs and bracketry.

Food grade material

Our engineering team are always looking for improvements in functionality and homologations of our products in order to help clients achieve their objectives for:-

  • Hot and cold drinks vending machines
  • Point of use water dispensers
  • Automatic hot water boilers
  • Point of use applications

We recommend Hydravend, a thermoplastic coextrusion high quality hose produced with a mirror smooth liner, which deters the build-up of micro-organisms present in all potable water systems. This food grade material is available in a range of WRAS approved flexible hoses, cut lengths or coils suitable for OEM vending equipment.
