A tap system built for user safety
The Porpoise arrives as the shallowest surface-mounted anti-ligature drinking water tap on the market. The extra measures taken in its design make it appropriate for vulnerable people to use unsupervised.

Research and Development team combined existing innovative technology for hygiene, power and energy efficiency and encased it into a shallow single case design, built to resist tampering and prevent misuse. This case is solid, smooth, and seamless; easy to clean and requires little maintenance. Facilities managers will find they can save on labour costs, and grant users new autonomy.

The Porpoise is operated by a touch-sensitive control panel. No buttons means no detachable small parts, granting managers extra peace of mind. This panel is kept free from contamination through its antimicrobial coating, which stunts bacterial build up and further reduces regular cleaning requirements.

Easy install and easy use
You’ll also be amazed at the ease of installation; it’s a true ‘plug and play’ phenomenon with simple push-fit plumbing fittings and USB electrical connections. The unit’s Simple-fit Vent Kit is unlike any else on the market as it eliminates the need for extractor fans: all you need in just one straightforward cut-out.

It marks the latest premium products to run on the processing power of the mighty ProCore®, which optimises performance through unmatched compactness.

The ProCore® not only saves the installer space, but money on their energy bills via minimising consumption of electricity. Even better, the facilities manager can optionally upgrade to ProCore+® for an even higher dispense output, perfect for the busier environment.

The other outstanding piece of signature technology you’ll find in a Porpoise is the DryChill® cooling system, which keeps water colder for longer. DryChill® is a sealed, tankless water-cooling system which guards against contamination and keeps bacteria from multiplying.

Safety and function through advanced technology
The Porpoise is made clean and sterile by our thorough Totality® procedure. Totality® is our six-stage methodology behind hygiene-assured refreshment for better peace of mind.

If this wasn’t reassuring enough, the Porpoise can be fitted with Viovandt™ LED-UV at the buyer’s request. Viovandt™ is a mercury-free, chemical-free, and maintenance-free water purification system for water dispensers operated through an ultraviolet source.

We’re well aware of the steps that a user needs to take for hot water tap maintenance, and 3M have you covered through their high-quality, easy-fit carbon filters for scale prevention. 3M Scaleguard™ carbon filters maximise the life of the hot tank and provide the highest level of water hygiene.
