Water Filtration: Will Your Ice Machine Require This?

A water filtration system, either fitted in the water supply line to the ice machine or built into the ice machine itself, will eradicate mineral sediment such as lime and calcium and avert scale formation. The water filter also keeps out vermin and other bacteria such as gunk fungus, eradicates odour, and creates a tasteless ice that will not change the flavour of beverages. With correct water filtration, you can remain assured that the ice you are providing to your customers or guests is pure and free from any contamination that might alter the taste of their drink or make them sick.

Regularly eradicating sediment will also upsurge the lifetime of your ice machine. The cause of many ice machine breakdowns can be traced to issues with the water supply. Consequently, if you know your water has a high mineral content, invest in a good water filtration system to avert build up on metal surfaces which causes wear and tear on your machine, perhaps prohibiting ice from developing properly. Keep sediment build-up problems from happening and substitute the water filter cartridge often. Nearly every ice machine manufacturer recommends that you change the water filter cartridge at least every 5 months, more if you have heavy water or low-quality water.

Water filters are an extremely vital part of pre-emptive maintenance for your ice machine. Without a water filter, scale may build up, causing mechanisms to break down and require maintenance sooner than predicted. Water filters also eliminate odours and foul smells from your ice, along with sediment and chemical deposits. A quality water filter will offer your customers with the freshest, best tasting ice around. With our selection of water filters from Scotsman’s we can guarantee that your ice machine will function more competently, and require less service than it would without a quality water filter.

An ice machine water filter is a great investment for your ice machine’s sake, and for the sake of your customers, as you would not want them to leave due to the fact that they are tasting something that is supposed to be pure but rather tasting somewhat horrific. Get the most out of your machine, and offer the highest quality ice around with a new water filter for your ice machine.
