Franke unveils ‘game changer’ for ice machine industry

Franke EcO3Ice

Franke has launched the EcO3Ice, a compact, low-power device that continuously treats incoming water used by ice machines to dramatically reduce microbial build-up, including bacteria, yeast and mold.

With each cycle, EcO3Ice creates a small, safe and effective amount of pure ozone that continuously kills microbes and inhibits growth in the machine’s interior, storage bin, remote bin and drains.

“This is a game changer for an industry burdened by costly and disruptive ice machine tear-down and cleaning,” said Wayne Lieberman, VP business development for Franke. “EcO3Ice improves restaurant profits by cutting these costs, while continuously reducing the sources of microbial build-up and contamination in ice machines, bins and dispensers.”

EcO3Ice attaches quickly and easily to the ice machine’s incoming water line and runs silently and automatically, cutting the frequency of professional, deep cleanings by half.

The company says that it’s the only such device for ice machines that keeps not only the ice making area clean, but also remote storage bins and dispensers clean as well.

Franke Foodservice Systems employs more than 1,000 associates worldwide, and manufactures and distributes a wide variety of equipment and supplies from a number of facilities in EMEA, Asia and the US.
