Due to temperature and humidity and other reasons, you can often find inside an ice machine mould, yeast and bacteria and other microorganisms that thrive in the ice, to the detriment of consumers' health and safety. According to world media, such as CNN reported that 70% of the fast-food shops selling ice content exceeds the number of bacteria in the water of the toilet. Therefore, the restaurant industry often requires a lot of manpower and financial resources for the ice machine for maintenance, in order to achieve food safety standards.

 

        

 

Due to temperature and humidity and reasons such as cross contamination, you can often find inside an ice machine mould, yeast, bacteria, slime and other microorganisms that thrive in the ice, to the detriment of consumers' health and safety.

Ice machines can become contaminated quickly due to issues such as:

  • insufficient cleaning of machine                                 
  • incorrect reassembling after maintenance 
  • improper handling equipment

Machines tested as early as 5 weeks after a service have resulted in bacteria levels so high the machine fails the Australia/ NZ Food Standards Code. Not to mention the life of the Ice machines are decreased as much as 30% due to build up of slime, bacteria.  

Bacteria/Viruses known to contaminate ice cubes:
• Cholera
• E. coli
• Hepatitis A
• Mycobacterium fortuitum
• Norovirus
• Salmonella Legionella
• Shigella
• Typhoid fever

People with decreased immunity, the elderly and children are especially susceptible to food (or ice) borne illnesses. According to world media, such as CNN reported that 70% of the fast-food shops selling ice content exceeds the number of bacteria in the water of the toilet. Therefore, the restaurant industry often requires a lot of manpower and financial resources for the ice machine for maintenance, in order to achieve food safety standards.

Factors that can promote slime growth:
• Airborne yeast
• Hot or humid climate
• Poor ambient air quality
• Poor water quality

IceZone prevents slime, mould, yeast, and bacteria from accumulating in ice machines, ice bins, and beverage dispensers.

IceZone’s patented Plasma Protect system distributes PhotoPlasma throughout the equipment to target areas most vulnerable to neutralize and kill micro-organisms before they can take root and cleans 24 hours a day 7 days a week, reaching areas that staff cleaning cannot. Impressive savings in reduced staff labour and unnecessary call out fees due to equipment failure as a result of grime inside the machine.

IceZone performance has been validated by independent third party laboratories to reduce surface bacteria and yeast on ice machine surfaces by over 99%. BioZone Scientific’s IceZone ice machine disinfection system meets the highest food service standards and is certified by NSF, UL, CE, and HACCP. IceZone retrofits to any ice machine and has minimal maintenance annually.

IceZone is a chemical-free clean-in-place system that is approved for use on over 800 commercial ice machines to provide automated equipment cleaning. IceZone is widely used by ice machine manufacturers and ice machine owners/operators including equipment leasing and rental companies, hospitals and healthcare facilities, hotels and resorts, school, restaurants and other food service facilities.
