Ice Machines: Air-Cooled vs Water-Cooled
If you’re looking to get an ice machine for your establishment but can’t decide which type is the best for you, we’re here to help. With commercial ice machines, there are three different types of condensers: air-cooled, water-cooled, and remote condensers. A condenser is a vital piece to refrigeration systems, eliminating heat to allow for continuous cooling inside. Determining what type of condenser you need depends on how much ice is needed per day, the working conditions of the ice machine, and the geographical location of your establishment. We carry all three types here at Zesco so whatever type of ice machine you decide that you need, we have it in stock.
Water-Cooled Ice Machines
If your establishment is located in a hot and humid climate where there aren’t any water usage restrictions, then a water-cooled ice machine is ideal for you. The air temperature doesn’t impact the condenser's cooling process of these ice machines significantly since they use water rather than air. These types of ice machines use less electricity when compared to air-cooled and remote-condenser machines, but use a much higher amount of water per day since there has to be a separate water line that runs into the condenser. If you’re looking for an ice machine that is relatively quiet, this is also the best options since there is no noisy fan in the condenser.
Air-Cooled Ice Machines
For a cheaper route, air-cooled ice machines are the way to go. These units are usually less expensive than water-cooled models and also use less water, saving you more money throughout the year as well. The way these units work is air is circulated over the water lines, keeping the heat at a minimum and water inside cool. An easy to install process makes for almost every commercial kitchen to be suitable for an air-cooled ice machine. The downside to air-cooled ice makers is the compressor coil fan which can be quite noisy while running.
Remote-Condenser Ice Machines
If noise and possibly a little added extra heat in your kitchen is an issue, then a remote-condenser ice machine would work out great in your establishment. Remote-condenser machines and air-cooled machines are virtually the same thing besides the fact the remote-cooled machines require a little more space to operate. The condenser unit is located away from the ice machine in a room or place where the noise and heat can be managed without disturbing the dining area or kitchen. These types of ice machines typically require air filters that need to be replaced regularly to maintain optimum performance.
Climate, space, and obviously cost play a big factor when it comes to figuring out which type of ice machine is best for your kitchen.
