The Ice Wand™ filter effectively filters, captures, controls and inhibits the growth of bacteria, algae, and often colored pink slime that is found in commercial and restaurant ice machines. The patented filter media used in the Ice Wand contains natural anti-microbial properties, which dramatically minimize the expensive, labor intensive, and time consuming maintenance and cleaning requirements of ice machines.

Before using the Ice Wand™ with a commercial ice machine it should be thoroughly scrubbed and sanitized. After the ice machine has been cleaned, or if it's a new machine, place the ice wand slime filter directly into the commercial ice machine water sump. The Ice Wand™ has been tested and works with a wide variety of ice machines including Scotsman, Manitowoc, Hoshizaki, Ice-O-Matic, and virtually any ice machine that uses a sump.
The Ice Wand™ ice slime control system is easy to remove and install and should be changed every 3 months for a standard size commercial ice cube machine of less than 1,200 lbs. daily capacity. If you own a commercial ice machine that has a capacity greater than 1,200 lbs. daily, then it is recommended to replace every 6 weeks. Although this is just a guideline, these recommendations are based on data collected from extensive in-house and outside testing, as well as feedback and data collected from commercial and restaurant ice machine customers since 2002. Below you can clearly see how well the Ice Wand™ prevents ice machine slime, and the cost savings over traditional ice machine cleanings.
