At Ice-O-Matic we are committed to making a positive difference in the world and seek to take responsibility for the environmental impact of our business operations.

ENERGY STAR

At the Plant

Through our partnership with American Forests and the Global ReLeaf restoration initiative, Ice-O-Matic helps offset its carbon footprint while assisting with the restoration of forest habitats across the globe. Through this effort, Ice-O-Matic's goal is to contribute to the planting of 150,000 trees, a donation that will reduce the pollutants in our air by more than 1.5 million pounds globally.

An ENERGY STAR Partner since 2004, Ice-O-Matic has tirelessly worked toward improving the energy efficiency of all our ice machines. These recent product additions are part of an ongoing effort to meet the high standards set by ENERGY STAR. Ice-O-Matic is committed to meeting our end users' needs by developing rugged, reliable and simple to service ice machines. Energy efficiency reflects Ice-O-Matic's commitment to environmental responsibility and endeavors to expand its ENERGY STAR family of products.

Here are a few of our ENERGY STAR machines. You can also download our full ENERGY STAR Product Brochure.

ICE1406

The air-cooled ICE1406, one of Ice-O-Matic's largest capacity modular cubers, is a recent addition to the company's ENERGY STAR arsenal.

ICE0520

Ice-O-Matic's ICE0520A is a space-saving 22"-wide cuber that produces up to 559 lbs (254 kg) of ice per day.

ICE0856

The ICE0856 is a modular cuber that produces the grande cube, a new ice type that is twice the size of our full cube.

Recycling Made Simple

With the implementation of a Single-Stream recycling process, everything thrown into the trash cans at Ice-O-Matic (other than liquids and food waste) is recyclable. Single-Stream recycling takes advantage of the fact that these recyclable materials can be commingled when collected and then separated later at the recycling center. This off-site sorting process makes it simpler for Ice-O-Matic employees to recycle and increases the amount of items that are recycled by more than 30 percent.

Stepping Towards Greener Manufacturing

At Ice-O-Matic, we're conscious of the environmental impact of the manufacturing process and are working to minimize it within our own Denver, Colorado manufacturing plant. The building utilizes high-efficiency lightbulbs, as well as a white roof installed specifically to reflect heat and consequently help cool the building during the hot summer months. Utilizing large ceiling fans instead of air conditioning is another way we are minimizing our energy usage.

Several pieces of the equipment we use during the ice machine production process are energy-efficient.

Runoff

We are classified by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment as having zero storm water runoff, which means we're keeping the groundwater around our facility free of pollutants.

Wastewater Cleaning

We collect and remove contaminants and an environmental disposal company comes to remove the discharge.

Water Usage

In the plant, we've cut down on the water consumption used in our cleaning process manufacturing. Four years ago, we were using approximately 9,000 gallons per day; now we've reduced this number to 6,000 gallons per day.

Keeping Your Ice Clean

Q:

How often do I need to replace my water filter?

A:

Your water filter should be replaced every 6 months to maintain ice quality and protect the evaporator from performance-robbing buildup. As an added bonus, when you purchase an Ice-O-Matic water filter with your cuber and replace it every 6 months, you are eligible for a 7-year parts and labor warranty - the longest warranty in the industry.

Q:

Can my plumber install my ice machine?

A:

While it's possible, we recommend hiring a professional, factory-authorized service technician. Getting help from someone who understands installation requirements, such as maximizing airflow and reducing ambient temperatures in and around the machine, is the best bet to ensuring your new ice machine runs at capacity at all times.

Q:

What type of cleaners can I use on my ice machine?

A:

Different types of cleaning fluids should be used on various parts of your machine. To clean your bin, a mild cleanser applied with a soft cloth will do the job (just remember to rinse after you're done!). For the evaporator, we recommend first using a nickel-safe cleaner then an EPA-approved sanitizer. Lastly, to make sure your air filter is running as efficiently as possible, simply use a clean brush to wipe off any dust that may have gathered. You can also check out our YouTube video for even more cleaning tips.

Q:

How do I make sure my customers are getting the cleanest ice possible?

A:

It's easy to ensure your ice is as clean as possible with a few simple steps.
1. Fully clean your ice machine every six months.
2. Use a proper ice scooper to help prevent your employee's hands from touching and contaminating the ice.
3. Don't ever keep the lid open for an extended period of time.
4. Never use the ice bin as a freezer for food and beverages.
