What Type of Condenser Do I Need?

Your ice machine’s condenser helps to cool refrigerant down so the machine can produce a batch of ice. There are three common types of condensers designed to work in differing environments:

Air Cooled Ice Machines

Do I Need a Water Filter?

Ice machine water filters help to filter out unwanted particles and sediment that can damage your ice maker. Some filters treat the water to prevent the formation of scale. Here are some common types of filters:

Standard Sediment Filters

Sediment filters trap particles that exist in your water supply. These filters are a great addition to any ice machine. They're even more critical if your corporate campus is located in an area with high-particulate water. These filters need to be replaced about every six months on average.

Phosphate Filters

Phosphate filters are often installed in addition to sediment filters. These systems help to treat the water, so minerals won't combine to form scale. Scale is a hard substance that can adhere to your ice machine's components and cause damage over time. These systems need to be replaced to replenish the phosphate in the cartridge. Aim to replace cartridges every six months.

Carbon Filters

Carbon is one of the earliest forms of filtration dating back to ancient Egypt. These filters filter out sediment and reduce the amount of chlorine in your water that can affect the taste of ice. These types of water filters are popular in nugget and flake ice machines. They're a great alternative to phosphate cartridges.

Commercial Ice Solutions: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing are necessary if you want your ice machine to continually produce clear, safe ice for your office park or campus customers. Mold, slime, and other contaminants can lead to customers getting sick or a bad review from a health inspector.

    Professional Cleaning

    Ice machine manufacturers advise getting at least two professional cleanings per year from a qualified ice machine technician. Places that bake a lot of bread (bagel shops, pizzerias, etc.) will likely need more.

    Mold and Slime

    Mold and slime can form in your ice machine because it provides a damp and dark environment. Places with a lot of yeast in the air, like bakeries and pizzerias, cause mold and slime to grow faster.

  • Commercial ice machines for business centers

    Ice Bin Cleaning

    Ice bins are also hot spots for mold and slime to grow. Cleaning the inside of your ice bin every few weeks will eliminate any mold or slime that forms.

How Much Will It Cost to Get an Ice Maker for A Corporate Campus?

Depending on the size of the model, a commercial ice machine can run anywhere between $1,500 to over $10,000. Modular and stackable ice makers will require a storage bin as well. There are also some hidden costs associated with owning an ice maker:

Maintenance and Cleaning

Ice machine manufacturers suggest owners receive at least 2 preventive maintenance and cleaning visits per year. During these visits, a qualified ice machine technician will clean, disinfect, and sanitize your ice machine inside and out. They will also optimize the ice machine and check for potential problems, which can lead to expensive repairs if they're not fixed.

The average maintenance and cleaning visit costs around $300.

Water Filters

Water filtration is a necessity for most ice machine installations. High-mineral or high-sediment water can enter your ice machine and cause damage. Sediment clogs internal components, and minerals can form to create scale, which sticks to vital parts within the unit. Water filters cost between $15-$100 depending on the type. Businesses with particularly challenging water may require multiple filters.

Breakdowns

Depending on the issue, ice machine repairs can cost between a few hundred dollars to over a thousand. Here are some examples of some common ice machine repairs and their costs:

  • Hot Gas Valve Replacement - $600
  • Expansion Valve - $600
  • Compressor Repair - $1500
  • Evaporator Repair - $2500
