What is the difference between Air-cooled and Water-cooled Ice Machine Cuber Heads?
Air-cooled commercial ice machine cuber heads have an electric fan that helps remove the heat produced by the mechanical components of the refrigeration system. Water-cooled commercial ice machine cuber heads circulate cool water around the components to keep them warm. Water-cooled machines use much more water than air-cooled machines but are quieter. Air-cooled machines are more energy efficient and have a lower cost of operation.
How do I choose the best Commercial Ice Machine Cuber Heads for my establishment?
Choosing the right commercial ice machine cuber heads can seem like a task but if you can determine how much ice you need, for example, a restaurant should account for 1.5-lbs. per person. Pick a unit that will work with a bin of your choice (or vice versa) and produce enough ice for your establishment. You can also choose between air-cooled and water-cooled units.
