Regardless of the area of operation of a business, there is a high chance that ice is an important part of ensuring quality production. If you work in ice sales, hotels, bakeries, or even construction, you know, just like us, that using ice is key to ensuring the effectiveness of your production processes and the satisfaction of your customers.
That’s why it’s important to pay attention to all the characteristics that influence this process. And one of them is the cleanliness of your ice machine. With that in mind, today Calabria teaches you how to ensure the proper cleaning of your equipment. Check it out!
If your business involves the production of ice for consumption (whether with hotels, restaurants, and bars) or for the maintenance of your products (such as fish farmers and ice cream makers), it is obvious that you are concerned about sanitary processes that directly influence the quality and well-being of your customers.
After all, water that is contaminated can be used to produce ice that unfortunately ends up causing the transmission of diseases. And this has a negative effect on the image of your company.
Therefore, opting for equipment like those from Calabria, which are assembled with these and other issues in mind, is essential to offer a final product that does not cause headaches for you or your customer. However, due importance must also be given to a key aspect: the cleaning of the ice machine.
It is important to perform the cleaning of the machine within the ideal period, sanitizing each part, from the internal parts, such as the tank, to the surface.
The recommended time for cleaning is usually between 3 to 6 months, but in some cases, the interval may be shorter (depending on factors such as the overall cleanliness of the environment, among others). However, by paying attention to some details, it is possible to identify exactly when cleaning is necessary. These include:
Although most entrepreneurs who use ice machines and other refrigeration solutions know the importance of cleaning the equipment, many end up not doing it correctly or within the due time interval.
It is worth noting that each Calabria product has different demands and specifications. Therefore, before cleaning them, be sure to read the instructions and manuals of the machines. And of course, for further clarifications, you can always count on our specialized technical assistance.

Here at Calabria, we offer a complete line of refrigeration equipment that not only meets all your expectations, but also does so in a practical way. One example of this is that our machines arrive ready to use, simply by plugging them into an outlet. However, during cleaning, make sure the equipment is not energized.
This is the part of the machine that delivers your product! Therefore, give it the proper attention it deserves. Wipe it clean with a cloth, dry it properly, and try to do this more frequently than the overall cleaning of the equipment.
Cleaning the outside of the machine is just as important as the inside. By wiping the surface of the equipment with a damp cloth, you remove dust and prevent it from spreading and contaminating the entire ice-making process. Never use brushes for this, as they can leave scratches on the machine.
Remove detachable parts
As a rule, the equipment has screwed parts that should not be removed. However, some parts can be removed for individual cleaning. If you are unsure which items can be removed, do not hesitate to contact our team or consult the machine manual.
Following the above tips, your machine’s cleaning is guaranteed, along with high-quality ice perfect for consumption and use! With Calabria, it’s just like that: in addition to a complete solution in refrigeration equipment, you have a world of advantages to make your business take off and leave the competition frozen!
