Due to the wet environment and hard water, the main instigator of trouble in Hoshizaki Ice Machines is scale. In some locations of the nation, you may discover lime or calcium build-up, which seems like a white or yellow crust and feels a lot like rough concrete. When wet, it might be transparent. In most parts of the nation, iron in the water triggers a red, rust-colored discolor. This sort of scale does not get in the evaporator section since there is no air flow from outside into the covered area. Once your ice machine gets invaded by the scale buildup it creates longer freeze cycles and inadequate harvest of ice in your Hoshizaki ice maker. This scale works as an insulator and keeps the water from turning to ice as quickly. An acid-based cleaner which is suggested for ice machine applications is needed to eliminate this scale. In addition to the ice maker, be sure to pick up cleaning supplies to keep the Ice Machines running efficiently.
Ice machines must be sanitized as well. A dip of 5.25 % chlorine bleach for 5 seconds will work fine. An alternative is to spray the area with a disinfectant solution of Iodine. Keep in mind these chemicals can cause burns if they contact your skin, so buy professional grade gloves when cleaning the ice trays. Once the unit has been cleaned and disinfected it is best to rinse the unit just to make sure there are no harsh chemicals left in the unit.
