The Fleet Maintenance Division is a part of the city government of Clearwater, Florida. It oversees a staff of more than 40 employees and is responsible for more than 1,400 equipment units.
The facility has three large commercial ice machines that were constantly scaling up the trays and flow nozzles, thus preventing the equipment from producing ice. The equipment was constantly being shut down to manually clean with chemicals. The ice machines were a test for ScaleBlaster with the potential for installation on other applications with the City of Clearwater.
Three ScaleBlaster ICE-50s were installed on the waterlines going to the ice machines.

The scaling issues of the ice machines stopped immediately without the need to clean out the trays and nozzles of the calcium buildup. Additional installations with the city have included the city’s fire department.
