DENVER -- Global ice machine and dispenser manufacturer Ice-O-Matic today announced the launch of their new Ozone Delivery System: the O3-Matic.
The company said the new groundbreaking device infuses ozone into incoming water, killing microbes on every surface it touches and retarding future growth.
In addition, the ozone becomes entrapped in the ice cubes, carrying the same sanitation benefits to the bin and dispenser. Introducing ozone increases intervals between sanitizing, impedes microbial growth while continually sanitizing your ice making system, and diminishes mold, mildew, bacteria and viruses.
Ozone also improves the taste and eliminates odor in iced drinks. Ice-O-Matic’s O3-Matic is designed for modular cube ice makers and can be retrofitted to all existing units.
The new technology will be introduced at the National Restaurant Association (NRA) tradeshow from May 21 – 24 at the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago, IL, in booth #4825.
“The O3-Matic will reduce expensive sanitizing cycles, and contribute to the overall food safety of the establishment,” said Keith Kelly, president of Ice-O-Matic.
“This device doesn’t eliminate the need for regular cleaning and sanitation, but it does increase efficacy and extend sanitizing intervals. We believe the O3-Matic will allow users to provide the cleanest ice possible.”
Ice-O-Matic’s O3-Matic will be available for purchase beginning July 1, the company said.
