During the freezing process the minerals that are dissolved in water are forced out of solution and accumulate as “Scale” on machine surfaces and components. Ice can transfer chlorine and other off taste and odor to beverages.
Below is a snapshot of contaminants that are problematic with ice machines and the OptiPure technologies that deal with them.
Fine silt, dirt, rust and other debris affect the taste and appearance of ice and can ruin beverages. Particulates settle as sediment and cause wear on parts, can damage solenoids and valves, and provide a catalyst for scale build-up.
Chlorine presents two problems. First, it can make ice taste and smell bad. Second, it can cause pitting and Corrosion on machine surfaces. Off-taste and ddor can come from a range of contaminants, such as algae, in addition to chlorine.
The formation and accumulation of Scale from hardness minerals is responsible for up to 70% of ice maker service calls. Scale build-up on machine surfaces reduces energy efficiency and ice production, interferes with beverage quality, and is the number-one cause of machine failure and service interruption.
