The SodaSparkle Approach to Safety
Safety is critical to us at SodaSparkle, and our products have been designed with safety at the forefront of the innovation process.
Our machines include a patented double valve safety system that incorporates two independent safety valves to maximise safety. This same process also allows our machines to have an optimal seal and to maximise the sparkle:
- At the start of the carbonating process, one valve opens to allow the CO2 to “push out” the regular air that the bottle holds. The valve closes as the pressure increases, allowing CO2 to replace the air. The SodaSparkle machine actually creates a seal that prevents any CO2 from escaping. Once the carbonating process is completed, a few shakes of the bottle will mix the CO2 on top with the water, maximizing the fizz.
- The second valve serves as a double protection to prevent too much pressure building inside the bottle. As well as making sure the product is safe to use, it is also helps prevent the bottle over-flowing upon opening.
Additionally, SodaSparkle soda bottles are made from a special plastic that does not explode. Instead, it expands under pressure.
