New solar-powered flush valves for public restrooms provide automatic flushing that is powered by ambient lighting. Single- and dual-flush models provide water and energy savings.
Sloan Valve Company introduces the world's first solar-powered, sensor-operated Flushometers. Sloan SOLIS® Flushometers for water closets and urinals provide ground-breaking water efficiency and utilize state-of-the-art photovoltaic technology.
The new Flushometers are part of the Sloan SOLIS Collection, which also includes the 0.5 gpm/1.9 Lpm Sloan SOLIS solar-powered faucet, making Sloan the first plumbing company to offer a complete line of solar-powered, water-efficient products.
Sloan SOLIS Flushometers use light to charge a highly efficient capacitor, providing power even in rooms with occupancy-controlled lighting.
These revolutionary plumbing products offer engineers and designers a way to visibly express a facility's commitment to sustainability.
Toilets account for most of the water used in commercial restrooms.
The new SOLIS High-Efficiency Flushometers are available in single-flush and dual-flush models. The dual-flush model has two flush cycles: Users can choose the full 1.6 gpf/6.0 Lpf flush for solid waste or the reduced flush of 1.1 gpf/4.2 Lpf for liquid waste.
If the user does not press a button, the Flushometer's Dual-Flush Smart Sense Technology' takes over and automatically initiates a flush cycle, based on how long the user remains in the sensor range. Users who stay within the sensor range less than a minute activate the reduced flush; users who stay longer activate the full flush.
Exhaustive research and extensive field trials have proven the Dual-Flush Sensing Algorithm to be a reliable and efficient method of controlling flush volume. In addition, advanced state-of-the-art sensor technology eliminates false flushing to further ensure water efficiency.
Sloan Valve Company is the world's leading manufacturer of water-efficient plumbing systems and has been in operation since 1906. Headquartered in Franklin Park, Illinois, the company manufactures plumbing products for commercial, industrial and institutional markets worldwide.
