The annual NRA trade show brings together more than 1,800 suppliers and thousands of buyers to drive business profitability and discuss the latest trends and products in the foodservice and hospitality industry.
“Exhibiting at NRA enables us to meet face-to-face with our customers and share ideas on how to improve the beverage dispense and food service systems that the industry is built on,” said Peter Wright, director, global product management, specialty products for Xylem’s Applied Water Systems business unit. “We’re excited to introduce two new beverage dispense products to the market this year that will help restaurant owners and operators increase efficiency while reducing total cost of ownership and supporting bottom line growth.”
Flojet, a Xylem brand, will unveil two innovations in beverage technology at NRA: the BevJet Compact beverage dispense system, designed for tight spaces; and V-Jet series rotary vane pump heads for specialty carbonation or hot beverage service. In addition to these product launches, Xylem will display its broad range of pumps for syrup, juice, water and alcohol that shorten dispensing time and reduce waste.
The BevJet Compact distributes liquids, such as water, wine and non-pulp juices, and is ideal for applications requiring frequent line changes, including soft drink dispensing. The concentrated design makes it easy to install in cabinets, carts or any under counter application, underscoring its flexibility for drink stalls and small restaurant operations.
V-Jet series rotary vane pump heads are low flow, high-pressure positive displacement units used in beverage carbonation, water dispense and boosting, and coffee applications. The pump heads are engineered to combat the most common maintenance and service issues in a wear-resistant plastic body.
“Xylem created these products to help professionals stay ahead of the fast-paced restaurant and hospitality industry,” said Wright. “Proprietors are looking for beverage systems and specialized solutions that can be customized to fit their ever-changing needs. The BevJet Compact is optimal for the spatial constraints presented by today’s dining architecture. The V-Jet series pump head offers a smooth-running solution that drives balanced carbonation or hot drink applications. Other Xylem highlights at this year’s NRA show include quality control and food safety products, such as precision thermometers, data loggers and fat oil monitors.
