HY-GEN sanitation principle by MAJA

  • Like all flake ice machines from MAJA, this model is labelled ‘HY-GEN protected‘, MAJA’s guarantee for a cleaning-friendly hygienic machine design.
  • HY-GEN Flake Ice Machines are designed to allow quick and easy cleaning – by hand but also fully automatically, for the production of flake ice under excellent sanitary conditions. The core piece of the HY-GEN sanitation principle is the cleaning friendly water tank, which can be easily removed for manual cleaning within seconds.
  • If cleaning, descaling and disinfection should be done in a more comfortable, faster and safer way, the MAJA Flake Ice Machine can be optionally equipped with the MAJA-SCS, MAJA’s patented evaporator self-cleaning system.
