Like most equipment, commercial ice machines will perform differently based on operating conditions. Simply put, it takes time to freeze water. The warmer the incoming water and the warmer the surrounding air, the longer it takes to freeze the water. The longer it takes, the fewer freeze cycles the machine can complete in 24 hours. Since each batch of ice is the same size, fewer cycles means less ice in warm conditions and more ice in cooler conditions.

It is important to ensure your ice machine has the proper operating conditions in order to receive the benefits of Easy Ice’s all-inclusive service. No company can guarantee the KM-600MAH (commonly referred to as a 600# ice machine) will produce 600 lbs in 24 hours. But Easy Ice does guarantee that if the water is 70 degrees and the air temperature is 80 degrees, that ice machine will produce at the rate of 532 in 24 hours until the bin fills up.

Below are two charts, one for Cuber ice machines and one for Cubelet/Flaker/Specialty ice machines. Each chart shows three production capacities for each machine: Max, Min, and AHRI. Max production in 24 hours is based water that is 50 degrees and surrounding air at 70 degrees. Min production is determined at 90 degree water and 90 degree air. AHRI production is based on a standard that is meant to approximate more typical operation conditions, with water at 70 degrees and air at 80 degrees.

You can find details about how to determine how much ice your machine is producing by opening the following Hoshizaki Ice Machine Production Answers (currently listed as the 6th FAQ):  “Customer complains that unit is low production.  How can I confirm this?”

Cooler weather can also affect ice machine production. Understanding how a commercial ice machine performs in various weather conditions will help you keep the ice flowing.
