Commercialicemakers.com can provide the appropriately sized commercial ice machine for any institution. Full-sized floor models are available to serve high-volume ice needs, or more compact models are available to serve the lower-volume business or to fit under counters or in tight spaces. Commercial ice machines produce anywhere from a few hundred pounds of ice to several hundred pounds. Restaurants should expect to use 1.5 pounds of ice per person, or roughly 5 ounces of ice per 7 to 10 ounce drink. If your restaurant includes a bar, you can expect more ice to be used per person or per seat, and buffet-style bars will consume 40 pounds per cubic feet.
Depending on the placement and access to your commercial ice machine will determine the cooling process you will need. Air-cooled ice machines, remote-condenser and water-cooled ice machines operate differently and may impact the efficiency of your commercial ice maker. The majority of commercial ice machines sold in the United States are air-cooled machines, and are mostly used for high ice production operations. These machines are more energy and water efficient than other types, reducing utility costs. Built-in fans blow cool air through the machine’s refrigeration system, which assist in cooling the area needed to produce ice. Remote commercial ice makers are great for quieter spaces. The condenser, the part of the ice maker that produces the most noise, is connected to the ice machine through long cords and operates in another room away from earshot. Water-cooled machines eliminate noise but are more costly to operate. Flowing water is used to cool the machine much quicker than a standard air-cooled machine.
We provide a variety of commercial ice maker accessories. Items can be added to your current commercial ice maker to meet an establishment’s specific needs, or parts are available to upgrade your current ice maker and to keep it running efficiently and safety. Listed are commercial ice bins, remote condensers, water filter assemblies, replacement filters, and more. Extra kitchen and restaurant equipment like ice bins can make managing ice for your business more efficient, safer, and more sanitary. Depending on your choice of commercial ice maker, filters will need to be removed and replaced.
