It is a common, but nasty problem for restaurants, bars, hotels, and hospitals: Bacteria and slime growing inside a commercial ice machine. Beyond the obvious issues associated with bacteria, the slimy build up inside of ice machines can cause bad odor and taste in beverages. When this slime builds up, it can also cause low ice production and even machine failure. (If your machine has with water scale you may want to purchase the Everpure EV9799-02 filter.)
To combat this bacteria and build-up problem for commercial ice bagging companies and hotels, hospitals, and restaurants with ice machines the Ice Wand easy an easy to use solution. Simply place the Ice Wand in your ice machine and the patented anti-microbial filter media will control the growth of bacteria that is responsible for ice machine bio-film (slime) build-up.
How the Ice Wand Prevents Ice Machine Slime
After nearly a year of field testing, the Ice Wand’s ability to control ice machine bio-film build up is remarkable. Traditionally, restaurants, hotels, bars, casinos, and any other establishment operating commercial ice machines are forced to shut down their ice makers to do regular mechanical cleaning and disinfection. The Ice Wand can prevent this loss time by inhibiting the growth of the disease and slime causing organisms with patented, nontoxic, mineral based, time-released filter media pellets.
The secret of the Ice Wand ice machine filter's success lies in this patented, EPA-registered advanced antimicrobial MB2050 media. This innovative technology utilizes the antimicrobial properties of various minerals, along with metal oxides to interfere with microorganism’s cell replication, electron transport and overall organism function. With this new technology the Ice Wand allows members of the food service industry to meet sanitation regulations easily and to improve the quality of beverages for their customers. The installation of the Ice wand is simple and requires no tools and is done with one step. Simply place the ice wand into your commercial ice machine's water sump, and you are done. The Ice Wand works with commercial ice machines such as Scotsman, Manitowoc, Hoshizaki, Ice-O-Matic, and virtually any ice machine that uses a sump.
The Ice Wand Can Save Your Business Money
Not only does the ice wand provide better quality ice and helps increase the life of your commercial ice machine, it saves your business money. The ice wand helps eliminate the burden of having to clean your ice machine manually. In the past, business operating commercial ice machines have had to pay an outside contractor to clean the bacteria and bio-film (slime) out of the machine about every 2-3 months.
Having a commercial ice machine professionally cleaned three times a year (some locations will need to do this more often), can cost owners over a $1000 a year. By using the Ice Wand, these cleanings are cut in half and in some cases the need for cleaning is eradicated, saving you hundreds of dollars a year!
