Filing Date: 01/07/2000 . In another conventional system, an ice machine runs the descaling and sanitizing solutions through the same water paths that are used to recirculate water to make ice. Machine for producing ice cremportions with a feeding device for preparing, creating fine frozen particles of water of ice flakes, placing a disposable drink container or cup, dispensing a predetermined quantity or amount of fine frozen particles of water, removing the disposable drink container or cup, placing the disposable drink container or cup, dispensing a predetermined quantity or amount of flavored liquid beverage mix, securing the disposable drink container or cup. Exposing the surfaces to ozonated water kills the micro-organisms and rinses the dead micro-organisms out of the ice making machine. If the time that the effective ozonated water is in the ozonated water reservoir 1510 is greater than the effective shelf life, the controller (microprocessor) 1525 can disable the pump 1527 so that the ineffective ozonated water is not dispensed. Since the conventional cleaning cycles are done in the same water path as making ice, there is no provision for cleaning adjacent areas that have the high buildup of calcium due to splashing and/or water moving by capillary action through and/or upwards through the ring of calcium deposits or scale. No. This leaves the various parts clean of minerals so that when the mineral free water dries, it does not leave a mineral deposit. The valve 360, connected to the drain 365, is opened after the sump pump 327 completes the discharge process to allow the residual water to exit the water reservoir or sump 325. On the other hand, if the desired strength of the ozonated water is 1.5 ppm and the strength of the ozonated water is below 1.5 ppm due to a non-functioning ozonated water generator, the oxidation-reduction potential sensor 1460, in conjunction with a controller, may cause the bypass valve 1470 to divert the water to a drain 1475 and the water volume through the flow regulator 1405 to decrease until the ozonated water is 1.5 ppm. During the process, the used ozonated water is drained from the ice making machine. SECURITY INTEREST (SEE DOCUMENT FOR DETAILS). 10, the ice making system includes an ice producing subsystem 1310 that includes a sump/pump system 960. When in the form of compressed ice flakes or ice nuggets, the fine frozen particles of water comprises from about 89 percent ice or frozen water to about 97 percent ice or frozen water by weight with the remaining unfrozen water. After the ice making process is completed, the sump pump 127 is used to discharge the used water from the water reservoir or sump 125. Although ozonated ice is not typically harmful, ozonated ice has the taste of ozone, which is not desirable. 4, an ice making system includes an evaporator 101, over which water, from a water source 160, is distributed by a water distributor 110. 62/281,362, filed on Jan. 21, 2016. The sprayers also spray into the ice storage bin to clean/sanitize the ice storage bin walls and stirrer. A method for preparing a single serving frozen beverage in a single serving disposable drink container in which said beverage is both blended and served, said method comprising: dispensing a predetermined quantity of flavorings into said single serving disposable drink container, and. A plurality of pumps deliver a pre-determined amount of a selected additive, such as alcohol, syrup, carbonated water or water, on top of the shaving disc to mix with the ice crystals created by the shaved frozen product. In an on-demand ozonated water dispensing system in conjunction with a monitoring system, when an employee wants to take a bottle of ozonated water to go spray the tables somewhere, the employee fills bottle with ozonated water. Publication: 2009-07-23. 62/183,533, filed on Jun. The de-mineralized water may also be directed introduced, preferably sprayed 370, into the water reservoir or sump 325 to de-scale the water reservoir or sump. The ice is then released through door 970 and is stored in ice storage bin 980. The on-demand ozonated water generation system also includes a pump 2110 to recirculate the ozonated water, via conduit 1340, valve 2105, and conduit 1350. The water is recirculated to fall over the evaporator 301 until a predetermined amount of ice is formed. U.S. Pat. The ozonated water exits the top portion 1930 through coupler 1910. Valve 73 is open during an ice making operation to provide water to water circuit 50 for making ice. FIG. Lastly, ozone generators can be expensive and require periodic maintenance. The brief opening of the drain valve 2370 and the drain 2350 being located at the lowest point of the water sump 2330 allows the mineralized water to be removed by gravity without requiring a flush with water. The ice producing subsystem includes an evaporator, a water tray, a water distributor, and a pump. At step S35, de-mineralized water, such as distilled water, filtered water, reverse osmosis water, or soft water, is introduced into the ice making system to remove any residual de-scaling solution on the surfaces of the ice making machine. 4 may include a controller for controlling the operations of the various valves, the refrigerant system (not shown), and the sump pump 127. 23, 2016, claims priority, under 35 U.S.C. A connection 71 connects a water supply 74 to water inlet 54 via a valve 73. A motor 30 drives a fan 28 to provide cooling air to condenser 26. The ozonated water from the ozonated water generator 1320 exits, via conduit 1360. As illustrated in FIG. It is therefore an object of the present invention to provide apparatus which can make frozen drinks quickly and efficiently and to do so in an automatic fashion directly in the serving cup without the use of a blender. It is further noted that the sprayers 130 associated with the water distributor 110, the area therearound, and the evaporator 101 may be operated simultaneously with the introduction of the de-mineralized water 171 into the water distributor 110. At step S50, ozonated water is introduced into the ice making system to kill and remove any microorganisms on the surfaces of the ice making machine. 2 (valve 230), may be utilized with the water recirculating system which directs the water from the sump pump 327 to either the water distributor 310, during the ice-making or cleaning process, or to an exterior drain, during the discharge process. Ozonated water is generated by ozonated water generator 1320. The entire content of U.S. Pat. 62/281,362, filed on Jan. 21, 2016, is hereby incorporated by reference. The cabinet may comprise an enclosure having an automated wash device 86 disposed therein to periodically wash the interior thereof automatically. The water distributor 210 receives water from a sump pump 227 that pumps water from a water reservoir or sump 225 to the water distributor 210. It is noted that de-scaling solution may be introduced directly into the water distributor without the use of sprayers, introduced directly into the water reservoir or sump to be recirculated through the ice making system by the sump pump, or introduced by sprayers associated with the water distributor, the area therearound, and the evaporator. The additive is mixed with the shaved frozen product in a mixing container placed below the shaving disc. No. It is also noted that the ppm strength (concentration) of the ozonated water may be a concentration other than 1.5 ppm. Thus, during a non-ice making process, ozonated water is sprayed over the ice making subsystem, including the evaporator, and is collected in the water sump. 7,469,548; U.S. Pat. An actuator or switch 42 is mounted to the front of the enclosure or housing 36 to selectively dispense the fine frozen particles of water from the ice dispensing nozzle 18 when actuated or pressed. The water that is utilized by the ozonated water generator 1320 is introduced to the ozonated water generator 1320 by the sump/pump system 960, via valve 1335, conduit 1350, valve 1050, and conduit 1055. Also, the sprayers associated with the water distributor, the area therearound, and the evaporator may be operated after or before the introduction of the water into the water distributor. within the TVPP - United States. After the de-scaling process, the water, containing minerals from the de-scaling process, in the water reservoir or sump 325 is then discharged, via conduit 315, a valve (not shown), and additional conduit (not shown), by the sump pump 327. In such a system, minerals (such as calcium) accumulate, during the ice making process, at the lowest point. The drain 2350 is located at the lowest point of the water sump 2330 such that all the water flows 2360 towards this low point (drain 2350). dispensing a predetermined quantity of said ice flakes or ice nuggets into said single serving disposable drink container. Various valves and tubing is used in the ice making system of FIG. The blender is then operated for the considerable amount of time required to reduce the ice to a finely-divided state. On the other hand, if the demand for ozonated water generation is low, ozonated water generator 1410 may be the only ozonated water generator that is operational. 6,730,348 shows a method for preparing a flavored confection using a disposable container of a neutral-flavored mix, transferred from a storage freezer to a tempering freezer. The ice making system includes an ice producing subsystem 910 that includes an evaporator 915, over which water is distributed by a water distributor (not shown). A valve 75 is disposed in connection 92 and is open during cleaning operations and closed during ice making operations. A counter and a interrupt button, respectively, are also provided on the control panel. FIG. Click for automatic bibliography ENODIS CORPORATION, FLORIDA, Free format text: For example, if the desired strength of the ozonated water is 1.5 ppm and the strength of the ozonated water is below 1.5 ppm, the oxidation-reduction potential sensor 1460, in conjunction with a controller, may cause the bypass valve 1470 to divert the water to a drain 1475 until the ozonated water is 1.5 ppm. PCT/US2009/67223. Then in 1986 John Herbert, U.S. Pat. It is further noted that the sprayers associated with the water distributor, the area therearound, and the evaporator may be operated simultaneously with the recirculation of the ozonated water through the water distributor. It is noted that once the ozonated water is 1.5 ppm, the oxidation-reduction potential sensor 1460, in conjunction with a controller, may cause one or more of the ozonated water generators to become non-operational (since ozonated water has a shelf life) until the oxidation-reduction potential sensor 1460 senses the strength of the ozonated water is below 1.5 ppm. Consequently many or most of ice machine owners do not “de-scale” the ice machines when recommended by the manufacturer, resulting in costly and unnecessary repair work and downtime. Patents by Inventor Robert Almblad Robert Almblad has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This scale will interfere with the operations of the ice machine by clogging valves, motors, and other functional parts. Of course, the substantially parallel, substantially vertical guide member 72 and guide apertures 74 may have corresponding rectilinear or other corresponding shapes. Steve recently hired Robert Almblad to do a feasibility study of how to make and sell this invention. Thus, by briefly opening the drain valve 2370, at the end of the ice making process, the mineralized water can be removed by gravity without requiring a flush with water. - August 2007 - present Klarquist Sparkman, LLP 14500 AVION PARKWAY SUITE 300 CHANTILLY VA...
