Ice Machine Audits

Assessment, Guidance, Education, and Filtration Solutions

Ice machines are notorious environments for biofilm and slime growth, harboring millions of pathogens and creating serious risks of illness. Temperatures inside these machines can reach 100°F – a perfect breeding ground for Legionella. As a result, ice machines used for patient support are considered high-risk utility system components, as per the Joint Commission, and therefore regarded as a critical control point in a hospital’s water management plan.

Routine cleaning, disinfection, and sanitization helps to eliminate bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants from the machine’s surface and inside the bin, ultimately improving performance. We offer alternate equipment maintenance program (AEM) support which can reduce preventative maintenance and give facilities engineering departments the ability to direct their time and resources toward other activities; this support includes an audit of your machine setup and program. We assess housings, tubings, and water sources; prime and disinfect components; and evaluate filtration efficacy.
