It is a natural sanitation system integrated inside the machine that ensures absolute cleaning and hygiene.



XSafe is a totally natural sanitation system which is fully integrated inside the ice machine. It automatically operates 24 hours a day 7 days a week to keep your ice making equipment clean and safe. The system destroys over 99% of known viruses, bacteria and reduces the formation of mould, mildew, yeast, and slime.

XSafe uses high power UV light to create a reactive mixture of oxygen, ozone and photo-plasma which is continually circulated in the air thought the ice machine. The treated air passes over exposed components inhibiting the growth of viruses, bacteria, ye


The benefits of retrofitting XSafe to your ice maker include improved overall sanitation, increased machine performance, and a better bottom line. Treating the air within the machine for viruses, bacteria and microorganisms results in an ice machine that stays cleaner for longer. As a result, it requires less labour and downtime to complete scheduled cleanings. Leaving you with an ice machine which performs better, creating purer, clearer, odour free ice more efficiently and with less strain on machine components.

The small investment of retrofitting an XSafe system could improve your bottom line though fewer professional cleanings and less downtime to complete them.



XSafes reduces cleaning and maintenance costs by over 50% yearly. Reason for it? It’s simple: this powerful sanitation system reduces the number of annual cleanings required by your machine.



reducing slime mold and yeast


Destroying viruses and bacteria


Increasing ice machine lifetime


For two reasons: first because all the internal parts of the machine not in direct contact with water will not be sanitised, and second because there is the risk that the ice will have a smell of Ozone. Meanwhile the UV lamp light cannot reach every single small corner of the bin and the evaporator. The areas not reached by direct UV light will not be sanitised. 

No. The XSafe system works without the use of chemicals and the reactive oxygen mixture has no taste or smell, therefore there’s nothing to transfer on to the ice. This ensures that the ice you serve to your customers is as good as it possible can be, making sure that your signature drinks and cocktails taste as they should.

The XSafe system requires zero interaction from the operator on a day-to-day basis other than the usual daily hygiene procedures for cleaning and sanitising.

We suggest to replace the Xsafe lamp once a year. You can call your trusted ice machine service to help you.

Yes. Preventing the growth of yeasts, moulds, slime, and mildew can elongate the interval between complete deep cleans. This can reduce service, cleaning, and maintenance costs by up to 50%. And the reduced use of harsh cleaners and scale removers will help extend the operational life of the ice maker by up to 30%! Making XSafe a very environment friendly cleaning system!

Yes, if the scoop is stored inside the bin, XSafe will also sanitise the scoop as part of its normal operation. No, there is no notable noise, even if the ice maker is on standby (bin full).

The XSafe system will be rolled out and fitted as standard across every range of Scotsman Ice maker except for the entry level AC-Series, the industrial MAR scale ice machines and some of the larger flaked ice makers. Scotsman is committed to making the manufacture, storage and serving of ice as hygienic as possible.
