At present, the market is flooded with a large number of ice machines of different brands and specifications, with great differences in quality and price. Since the ice machine market is still in the developing stage, customers have a superficial understanding of ice machines, which sometimes leads to mistaken purchases. How to choose an ice machine is a problem that plagues many consumers. Here are some ways to choose.
Types of ice maker:
1. According to the shape of the ice cubes produced by the ice making mechanism, it can be divided into: tube ice machine, block ice machine, flake ice machine, plate ice machine and pellet ice machine;
2. According to the different functions used, it can be divided into: edible ice maker and industrial ice maker;
3. Generally speaking, the ice produced by tube ice machine and pellet ice machine is edible;
4. Other ice machines such as flake ice machine, plate ice machine, block ice machine, etc. are for industrial use.
Demand for ice cubes:
From an experience point of view, generally speaking, Chinese restaurants: 0.5kg ice cubes per seat; Western restaurants: 1kg ice cubes per seat; hotel guest rooms: 1kg ice cubes per room; pearl milk tea, bubble black tea, 1kg of ice cubes can supply 7-8 cups; sand ice and shaved ice can supply about 4 cups per kilogram.Understanding of ice production by ice maker:1. Definition of ice production volume of ice maker:
When selecting a model, the user mainly considers the amount of ice used. However, the ice production of the ice maker is greatly affected by environmental conditions, and the standard operating conditions need to be clarified before the ice production can be compared. The ice maker follows the internationally accepted nominal working condition as the standard working condition of the product (that is, the ice-making water temperature is 15℃±1℃; the working environment temperature is 21℃±2℃; the power requirement is single-phase 220V 50Hz/ Three-phase 380 volts and 50 Hz; water source requirement is clean fresh water; working unit time is 24 hours) The certain kilogram ice maker we see on the market indicates the daily ice production under standard working conditions.2. Understanding of the ice production volume of the ice machine in summer:
In the summer, the water temperature and the ambient temperature increase significantly, and the increase in water temperature is equivalent to prolonging the ice making time of each ice plate (because the freezing point of water is 0°C, the high temperature ice making water should be cooled to 0°C compared to normal temperature. The period of time when the water drops to 0°C is also long), and the excessively high ambient temperature, it is an unavoidable serious fact that the ice production of the air-cooled ice maker that uses air for cold and heat exchange has dropped significantly.
