Let’s make a plan today.

Here are some important things you need to consider during the installation process:

Location and Clearance

Ensure that your commercial ice machine is installed in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated area with enough clearance on all sides for easy maintenance. In addition, avoid placing the machine near a heat source or in direct sunlight, which can interfere with its operation.

  • Shorter ceilings
  • Basements
  • Smaller kitchens

Electrical Requirements

Commercial ice machines require specific electrical voltage and amperage to function correctly. Ensure that your electrical service can meet the manufacturer’s specifications and that there are enough circuits to power the ice machine without overloading.

  • NEMA standard plugs
  • Dedicated outlets

Proper Installation

Proper installation of a commercial ice machine is critical to ensure that it operates correctly and that it is up to local and federal regulations. Empire Cooler has licensed and experienced technicians that can ensure that everything is installed correctly and meets code requirements.

Water Supply and Drainage

Check your water supply and ensure that there is enough pressure to fill the ice maker. Determine the location of the water and drainage lines and make sure they are properly installed to avoid leaks and other water-related issues.

  • Water drain with required air gaps
  • Back flow preventer
  • Shutoff valves
  • Water filters

Maintenance Schedule

After installation, you will need to establish a regular maintenance schedule to ensure that your commercial ice machine continues to produce clean and safe ice. This includes regular cleaning, inspection, and sanitization of the machine’s components.

  • Preventative maintenance
  • Cleanings
  • Repairs and installations

Choosing the Right Location

Selecting the right location for your ice machine is crucial for optimal
performance and maintenance. Here are some factors to consider:

Proper Ventilation

To maximize commercial ice machine production, prioritize robust ventilation. Inadequate airflow can affect proper freezing, causing complications. Ensure enough space for heat expulsion to facilitate peak performance. At each installation, our seasoned refrigeration specialists guide you on spatial requirements and optimal layout.

Space Requirements

Choose a location that is easily accessible for regular maintenance and cleaning. This will help prolong the life of your ice machine and prevent downtime. Install the ice machine away from food preparation areas to minimize the risk of bacterial contamination. You should also avoid installing it in direct sunlight or near sources of heat.

Water Source and Drainage

Reliable water sources and effective drainage are crucial to successful commercial ice machine installation. As essential components of ice production, an inconsistent water supply or inadequate drainage system can compromise machine performance and longevity. Empire Cooler Service ensures these critical aspects are impeccably addressed during installation, bolstering your business’s seamless operation.
