Title (EN) ICE MAKING MACHINE AND METHOD WITH SILVER ION SANITATION
(FR) MACHINE À GLACE ET PROCÉDÉ DE DÉSINFECTION PAR IONS D'ARGENT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An ice making machine and method for introducing silver ions into water during sump fill time. An ionization device is controlled to introduce the silver ions based on the volume of the water being delivered to the sump. The resulting ice pieces contain the silver ions so as to prevent contamination due to contact with ice scoops, ice bins, vessels and hands of users.
(FR)La présente invention concerne une machine à glace et un procédé permettant d'introduire des ions d'argent dans l'eau pendant la durée de remplissage de la citerne. Un dispositif d'ionisation est commandé pour introduire les ions d'argent en fonction du volume de l'eau qui est fournie à la citerne. Les morceaux de glace obtenus contiennent des ions d'argent qui permettent de prévenir la contamination due au contact avec des pelles à glaçons, des seaux à glace, des récipients et les mains des utilisateurs.
