Keeping your ice machine clean— inside and out—can be a challenge for time- and labor-strapped operators. EcO3Ice, a recently introduced antimicrobial ice protection system by Franke, is a compact, lowpower device that continuously treats incoming water used by ice machines to noticeably reduce microbial buildup, including bacteria, yeast and mold. “Operators using EcO3Ice can expect to dramatically lower the cost and interruption of cleanings, as well as the number of service incidents,” notes John Edmonds, Franke Sales Director. “Operators also should expect to earn better health inspection scores for ice production and handling.” EcO3Ice generates a minute amount of ozone within the ice machine’s water supply. As the water (now doing double duty as a sanitizing solution) circulates, it continuously kills microbes and inhibits growth throughout the ice-making path. Trace amounts of ozone left in the ice help sanitize ice bins and dispensers well beyond the machine. EcO3Ice attaches quickly and easily to an ice machine’s incoming water line and runs silently and automatically. The unit can sanitize up to 50,000 gal. before needing a replacement cartridge; an LED light signals when a replacement is due. Replacing the twist-on cartridge takes only a minute. The unit is available in 3 sizes, suitable for most commercial ice machines.

GRIND SPICES, CREATE POWDERS

It comes with a newly designed 3-peak-output hp motor with improved thermal capabilities, providing the power and dependability required in high-volume kitchens. Robust, easy-to-use controls minimize employee training time, improve grip and stand up to back-to-back blends. The machine’s variable-speed control delivers a full range of textures and its advanced cooling fan provides reliability during peak hours of operation.
SAVE ON WASTE COSTS
Improve your operational efficiency with BINPAK, a container with built-in compaction that can hold up to 6 cu. yd. of waste, recycling or cardboard. Benefits include reduced overall waste costs, improved handling of recyclable materials thanks to the elimination of multiple containers, and better employee health as a result of the ergonomic 26-in. loading height. The compactor overall measures 83-in.W x 64-in.D x 83-in.H. Choose single or 3-phase electric.
