ice makerIf you need commercial ice makers in De Soto, MO, De Soto Electrical Products is the ice machine supplier to trust. Our company offers a wide range of ice makers suitable to many different industries and applications. Choosing the right ice maker often comes down to how much ice you need a day. Smaller units can provide 200 pounds of ice, while larger units can provide 1,000 pounds or more. You’ll also need to consider your space requirements and the cooling approach for the ice maker itself.

    De Soto Commercial Ice Makers

    There are three main types of commercial ice makers: air cooled, water cooled, and remote cooled. As a premier ice machine supplier, we have all three types available.

    An air cooled ice maker is generally going to be the most economical option. It simply has a fan that blows air over the heated components and exhausts the hot air. Indoor installations are typical. You need air conditioning that maintains a temperature under 80 degrees. You also need the appropriate clearance. If there’s not enough room, the cooling won’t work as well.

    Water cooled ice makers have a compressor that runs cold water through a coil. The coil is how the system transfers heat energy. This style is generally preferrable if you can’t guarantee a temperature below 80 degrees. This includes outdoor installations and installation in commercial kitchens.

    Remote cooled is usually the best choice for an industrial ice maker. These systems are similar in design to split HVAC systems. They have an indoor unit and an outdoor unit. The indoor unit makes the ice. The outdoor condenser unit has a compressor, condenser coil, and refrigerant. It uses the refrigerant to transfer heat energy from the ice maker to the ambient air.

    When purchasing an ice maker, it’s important to note that it requires regular service. Frequency depends on usage. During that service, we’ll clean the sensor and sanitize the compressor and ice cabinet.

    Watch for signs that it’s time to replace your old ice maker.
