Remote cooled ice machines are a type of commercial ice maker that is equipped with a remote condenser unit to keep it cool. The remote condenser will have a fan pulling air through the remote unit and out the back. Remote cooling means that the condenser is located some distance away from the actual ice machine cabinet. The heat transferring from the condenser is released in a separate location from the actual ice machine, typically outdoors or on the roof. This allows the ice machine's interior location to stay cooler and requires less climate control for the surroundings, saving energy and money. A remote cooled ice machine is also somewhat quieter than an air-cooled or water-cooled model.
Remote Cooled Ice Machine cabinets are made of stainless steel, aluminum, or durable industrial grade plastics. Remote Cooled Ice Machines are easy to maintain and will save the operator money over the long life of the unit. Note: A remote cooled ice machine does NOT come with a condenser included. The remote condenser must be purchased separately.
