Ice machine algae and scale control


HydroFLOW is a chemical-free, environmentally friendly way to control algae and scale on ice machines and other appliances. No maintenance and it saves hours of labor each month.

Ice makers develop a mat of biofilm, with mold and algae that serves as a host for bacteria if not disinfected frequently. Biofilm is difficult to control, and it serves to protect bacteria very effectively and regrows rapidly in moist environments.

  • Biofilm grows in the cold environment
  • Chemicals used to control bacteria are difficult to remove after applying them
  • Downtime for ice production is expensive
  • Labor used to keep ice machines clean is expensive

Usually within 15 days the ice machine has no visible biofilm and HydroFLOW continues to control scale and biological fouling 24/7.

Winner of the National Restaurant Associations 2015 Kitchens Innovations Award, HydroFLOW S38 & HS48 products are ideal for addressing limescale issues while adding extra protection against bacteria in the water supply sustem and ice machines.

We are very pleased with how the Hydro has made our ice machines become clean. Algae growth is everybody's problem and we now have less work to do.

The algae disappeared and we see no pink spots in the ice making trays. Works great!
