Scotsman is leading the market in ice safety, cleanliness, and maintenance with the introduction of XSafe to their ice makers.
XSafe is an ice machine sanitation system that uses high-powered UV light to create treated air, circulating through the machine, defending against viruses, bacteria, mould, and yeast. It is a small box added to the case of the ice maker, which sprays the treated air onto the ice, evaporator and ice bin without using chemicals or leaving residue.
A major food safety issue in hospitality are the bacteria and viruses found in water and dirty ice maker evaporators. These cause water-borne viral infections and food poisoning. Whilst the water filters remove mineral and lime build-up, XSafe takes care of the rest.
Scotsman has introduced XSafe to most of its ice makers and will be a standard feature of future products, with minimal cost increase but massive value increase.
