BioZone Scientific’s IceZone® is the industry-leading ice machine sanitation system that keeps your ice machine, ice bin, or beverage dispenser clean from slime, mold, yeast, bacteria and other impurities. Ice machines can be very difficult to keep clean, especially in environments with high airborne yeast concentrations such as bars and restaurants so the worse your environment the greater the return.
—Cory Cook, VP of Development, Rottinghaus Company, SUBWAY® Multi Unit Owner
When it comes to the health of your customers and others who use the ice from your machines is there a price tag?
If you fail a health inspection due to a filthy ice machine what is the downtime cost? What is the cost of bad publicity?
What is IceZone®
IceZone® is a multi-patented Clean-In-Place (CIP) food equipment sanitation system that prevents slime, mold, bacteria, viruses, fungi, and yeast from growing on the surfaces of ice machines and is proven by independent third party test labs to eliminate over 99% of surface micro-contamination.
IceZone® is approved for use on nearly all major commercial ice machines in the field and is certified by UL, NSF, and HACCP. Every commercial ice machine can benefit from installation of IceZone®.
Ice machine contamination is environment dependent. In high yeast and humid environments, for example, ice machines demonstrate accelerated contamination, even within days.
