Ice Machine Compressors: The Heart of Ice Machines
Refrigeration is the core component of all ice machines. The two utmost components of any refrigeration system are ice machine compressors and ice machine condensers. Refrigerants in your ice machines go through these parts and change the internal temperature. When they fail to work, your ice maker cannot meet the ice demands. In some cases, it may even stop working.
Maintenance or replacement of ice machine compressors when necessary should be your top priority. In ice machines, condensers and compressors can either be within the equipment or installed away from it. Self-contained refrigeration systems do the cooling task by pumping air or water through the refrigerant coils. Air-cooling uses the ambient temperatures and creates noise. Water-cooled condensers drive up your utility costs.
Remote ice machine compressors are known to be costly to install, but their advantages overweigh their disadvantages. Indoor or outdoor remote condensers are assembled away from the ice machine, keeping your customers unaffected from the noise. In addition to noise, ice machine compressors and condensers create heat, reducing the ice production capacity of your machine. Remote condensers dissipate heat far from your ice machines to maximize production and storage performance. Therefore, remote systems are also more energy-efficient, so they save money on utility costs.
