Commercial Ice Manufacturing
Ice Production Made More Efficient
Guaranteed to Prevent and Remove Limescale Build-Up in your Condensers and Equipment.
Equipment Failure and Maintenance Time Reduce Revenue
Hard water minerals in the source water coming into a manufactured ice facility are at the heart of equipment breakdowns and the requirement to take the ice production equipment off-line for maintenance and repairs.
When the equipment is ‘off-line’ for maintenance and repair, ice production decreases and repair costs are incurred, with the ultimate result being a decrease in profitability.
In talking with our customers, the most prevalent issues which cause downtime and maintenance costs were:
- Head pressure increases
- Running temperatures get too high
- Failure of o’rings on the pumps
- Heat exchangers’ plates/tubes blocked due to scale build-up
When these problems occur, production slows or is stopped altogether while these critical components are chemically or manually cleaned of hard water mineral deposits. It all takes time, money and labour to remedy the problems and resume production.
The Integro™ Solution
The Integro™ is a comprehensive solution to preventing and removing hard water mineral deposits in critical ice manufacturing equipment. It is unparalleled in how it works.
It is the only solution that does not require the use of chemicals of any type to descale the equipment nor does it require management and staff time to maintain the Integro™ equipment. It is completely chemical and maintenance free.
The Integro™ technology effectively prevents and removes hard water scale deposits by disrupting the bonding which otherwise naturally occurs between various scale causing minerals such as calcium and magnesium.
These and other minerals remain in their single, neutral ionic state and simply flow through the water system. They will not precipitate out of the water solution to form the scale crystals which foul the ice making equipment.
What You’ll Get:
Improve Ice Production Time
Improve ice production time is the greatest benefit of using the Integro™ Technology. When ice production is halted to deal with equipment repairs, revenue obviously decreases.
Below are key benefits realised by manufactured ice companies when the Integro™ system is installed:
The net effect in using the Integro™ system is improved operating efficiency, reduced down time, decreased scheduled maintenance and fewer repair costs. The greatest benefits of all, however, are fewer moments of frustration and greater profitability.

Customer Report and Installation
A detailed report and quote will be issued outlining the areas where we can help and the benefits our system will offer. Upon acceptance of the quote we will arrange delivery and will liaise with your chosen fitter to ensure that the installation goes smoothly.
On-Going Support and Warranty
After installation, we will follow up with you to ensure that you are realising the benefits we set out. Beyond this, our team will be on hand if any support is required, and you can relax knowing the system is Maintenance Free and benefits from a Five-Year Warranty.
What Others Say About Us:
“Sidon’s Cooling Tower Water Conservation Solution was added to a scaled system in July. When the chillers were opened in February, the tubes and end sheets are very clean. She is running 13+ cycles of concentration (chlorides) and about 8.5 cycles on hardness, so should be scaling. No chemicals whatsoever [in this time] and her monthly water usage is down from 70-80 thousand gals. to about 10. So far the test on the ice machines is performing perfectly well also. I’m impressed!”
E.O’Brien, McQuay Service
“We installed the Integro system in April 2021, a very quick install with no disruption to the Hotel operation. Within a month we noticed the reduction in scale in the Rack Dishwasher and Ice Machines. The quarterly cleaning of the showerheads and taps as part of the legionella prevention programme has been noticeably easier. We have seen an improvement in hot water temperature and pressure indicating the removal of scale build-up in the boilers and heat exchangers. Sidon Water have been easy to work with every step of the way resulting in an extremely successful project.”
Cluster Director of Engineering, South, West and Wales
“In July 2020, we installed the Integro™. Within the first 4 weeks we noticed existing scale build-up being removed throughout the whole irrigation system. It continues to prevent blocked drippers, saving us time and money. Sidon Water have been professional and helpful, they are a great team to work with.”
Salih Hodzhov, Production Director at WB Chambers Ltd
“We purchased two Integros to replace all of our salt softeners and remove old limescale build-up. Within the two weeks of installation I have already noticed a significant change in water quality and evidence of the Integros cleaning the old limescale from the system. From the initial site survey through to installation, Sidon have been nothing but supportive. Great product, good value for money and really nice people!”
