Ice is 100% water. You want to keep it that way!

1st of July 2020

Keep your Scotsman ice machine and cash register humming with water filtration you can count on…

Scotsman Extra Large Gourmet Supercube Ice in a glassScale build-up and sediment particles put your ice machine at risk from breakdowns, increased maintenance costs and inefficient operation which could cause profits and customer experiences to suffer as a result.

Make sure your Scotsman produces quality ice and consistently gives your customers clean, clear, great-tasting products which they’ll return for time and time again.

The Challenge…

Excess sediment, chlorine residue and scale buildup can clog distribution tubes, cause unpleasant chlorine odours, accelerate corrosion of key components, and increase maintenance costs.

The Solution…

3M™ Water Filtration Products provide built-in scale inhibition as well as chlorine taste and odour and particulate reduction. This can help to reduce service calls and downtime—increasing bottom line profitability.

Benefits that go beyond great-tasting ice!

  • Satisfy customers with less chlorine taste and odour as well as reduced sediment
  • Help prevent corrosion and extend the life of pumps, valves, seals and more
  • Help extend the life of pumps, valves, seals and more with less sediment
