Problem: Carbon Filters Amplify Bacteria Concentrations

Carbon filters trap organics and remove chlorine, which creates ideal conditions for bacteria growth. After a new filter is installed, effluent from the carbon filter contains more bacteria than the water entering the filter in just a few weeks.

Solution: Carbon Filter treated with Agion® Antimicrobial

Agion® can be incorporated into the carbon filter media during manufacturing of the filter, which will inhibit the growth of bacteria on the filter, and reduce the amplification of bacteria in the effluent. This specific functionality is proven by the NSF 42 bacteriostatic certification achieved by many filters using Agion®.

 


 

Problem: Bacteria Proliferate On The Spillway, Leading to Evaporator Grid

The conditions on the spillway surface, with frequent flow of water, provide ideal conditions for the formation of biofilm. The bacteria in the biofilm produce metabolites that impart an off taste to the ice.

Solution: Plastic Treated with Agion® Antimicrobial

The spillway can be manufactured with Agion® Antimicrobial incorporated into the plastic as the part is molded. The Agion® at the surface of the spillway inhibits growth of bacteria and, in turn, reduces the impact on taste.

 


 

Problem: Bacteria On Bin Surface Causes Odor and Poor Taste

The conditions in the bin, with frequent flow of water, provide ideal conditions for the formation of biofilm. The bacteria in the biofilm produce metabolites that impart an off taste to the ice.

Solution: Plastic Treated With Agion® Antimicrobial

The ice bin can be manufactured with Agion® incorporated into the plastic as the component is manufactured. The Agion® at the surface of the bin inhibits growth of bacteria and, in turn, reduces the impact on taste and odor.
