Everest's Ice Shield infuses Ozone (O₃) into the water used to create all the ice within our VX series machines. Ozone is a natural disinfectant, made from oxygen which protects against viruses, bacteria, and fungus.

Proven safe and effective, 100% chemical-free, no odor and improves taste, kills virus, bacteria, mold, mildew & slime, disinfects the entire ice path, 3000x more effective than chlorine.

How does it work? The Ice shield disinfects the entire ice path from the water supply through the ice maker, the ice dispenser, the ice chute and even keeps sanitizing after being dispensed into the customer's cooler or ice bag.


The proprietary Everest Safe Ice System. Protecting you, your business, your customers and your reputation.

We all know that in this new world hygiene and sanitization are more important than ever and we here at Everest have taken steps to ensure that the ice vended from an Everest machine is the safest, cleanest and most hygienic available in the Ice Vending industry.

Some manufacturers use an “Auto-bagging” system and falsely claim that this makes their ice safe. Their OPEN and unsealed bag of ice slides down a chute that is exposed to the elements and contamination. FAR from contaminant free. And NO other manufacturer except Everest takes steps to make sure that the ice itself is safe.

At Everest, we have ensured that ice vended from our equipment is not only safe but virus, bacteria, mold, and mildew free from the ice maker, into the hopper, out the covered ice chute, all the way through the entire ice path….even into the customer’s bag or cooler!

Don’t be fooled into believing the method of dispensing matters when the ice itself is what’s important.

Everest has the safest, cleanest, cleanest and most sanitary ice in Ice Vending. Period.

Take a look below and see why.

See the difference - Ice Shield prevents mold, algae and slime growth in the ice maker extending ice maker life as well as virtually eliminating the cleaning and maintenance typically required by all other ice vending machines.
