Sloan's Optima Plus(R) EBF-85 Touchless Faucet With Advanced Fiber Optics

Franklin Park, IL - Sloan's Optima Plus(R) EBF-85 touchless, sensor-operated faucet offers unsurpassed reliability for facilities that require high-end plumbing fixtures to match aesthetic design.

Blending ADA compliance and state-of-the-art engineering, Sloan's EBF-85 microprocessor-based circuitry automatically adjusts the faucet's sensing range to the type, depth and reflectiveness of the sink on which it is installed, ensuring functionality in any atmosphere.

Touchless, sensor-operated EBF-85 faucets also lend a sense of cleanliness to restrooms, greatly reducing the risk of bacterial transfer from plumbing fixtures. By emitting a continuous beam of infrared light, the faucet's sensor activates the water flow cycle when a user's hands enter the active area. When the user is finished, the loss of reflected light ends the cycle, conserving water that might otherwise flow unattended.

Known for ever-lasting reliability, the EBF-85 was designed to protect all electrical components below deck so soap and water cannot harm operations.

Also, the EBF-85 has a valve mechanism with a self-cleaning bypass that activates with every cycle, and each faucet has a clean-out strainer that traps debris before it enters the solenoid.

Sloan Valve Company is the world's leading manufacturer of 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.
