How To Stop Slime!

Is slime taking over your ice machines? Don’t worry, slime contamination can be solved with the correct water filtration system. In a hospital, various environmental factors affect the ice. The problem with slime originates from filtration removing the disinfectant from the supply water to the ice machine.  By removing chlorine and chloramines, contamination can occur in the ice bins and nasty bacteria can multiply, leaving you with SLIME! To address this problem, Everpure has developed the 7SI cartridge. Everpure’s 7SI cartridge (EV9606-01) allows chlorine or chloramines through to help fight slime. 

7SI Cartridge

  • Specializes in slime and bacteria growth prevention
  • Reduces particulates down to 0.5 micron
  • Utilizes depth filtration and Fiberdyne™ media for superior dirt holding capability

  • Sanitary cartridge replacement is simple, quick and clean. Internal filter parts are never exposed to handling or contamination
  • Can be used on Insurice® and Hybrid Manifold Systems
  • NSF® Certified under NSF / ANSI Standards 42 and 53
