Hot and Cold
The venerable bottle water cooler which is now such a standard fitting in many offices has in fact only been around in the UK for about 25 years. Prior to 1989 there was virtually no water delivery service in most of the country. And the first coolers to be seen were quite boring looking rectangular boxes without the universal non spill system which punctures the bottle cap, in those days you had to completely remove the cap and tip the bottle as quickly as possible onto the cooler hoping that you wouldn’t wet your feet!
Nowadays we have all kinds of weird and wonderful drinking water machines on offer. The hot & cold bottled water cooler has been around right from the beginning of the cooler business (at least in the UK). It is a very practical and easy way to provide staff with hot drinks as well as cold water on tap.
The hot water from a cooler is typically limited to about 90 degrees maximum. If it gets any hotter, bubbles will start to form and cause problems. The hot tank is gravity fed from the cold tank and any bubbles will rise up into the cold compartment and waste energy which has to be used to cool that water down again. The only alternative is to have a steam vent but this will produce drips of water so it cannot usually release inside the machine. Drinking water boilers, which can serve water at boiling point, have a drain pipe which allows steam to flow out into a drain and this allows them to keep the water at higher temperatures.
The standard heating element in a hot and cold bottle cooler is 500 watts. This is relatively small compared with a kettle (normally 3kw) or a boiler which is also usually 3kw.
The hot and cold cooler is perfectly functional and convenient for making instant coffee and soup and other hot drinks n the office.
