Scotsman Remote Air Cooled Ice Machines incorporate the water-saving benefits of an air-cooled ice machine and the cooler temperatures of a water cooled ice machine. A remote condensing unit removes the primary disadvantage to another location: the condenser's vented hot air can increase the ambient temperature of the immediate surroundings of the ice machine head. By design, the remote condensers are external units that can be installed outside or on the roof of the installation location. The end results for the operator of a Scotsman Remote Air Cooled Ice Machine are the same ice production rates and cooler work environment of the water-cooled model, with the energy and water savings of the air-cooled ice machine.
Scotsman Remote Air-Cooled ice machines were designed for applications where the air temperatures are excessive and where vented hot air would only increase the heat. A standard air-cooled ice machine would then pull in the hot air to try to cool off the internal condenser, only to further increase the temperature of the air in a vicious cycle. This can eventually burn out your ice machine. With a remote condenser, the temperature of the ice machine can be maintained while the hot air from the condenser can be directed away from the unit, making the surroundings bearable and helping your ice machine last longer. Consider a Scotsman Remote Air-Cooled Ice Machine if your location is already hot. Call 877-900-4423 for Expert Advice on Scotsman Remote Air-cooled models.
