Ice Machine Energy Consumption and Water Waste

$190.00

Commercial refrigeration equipment requires and consumes enormous electrical energy to operate. In many existing installations, energy use cannot align with the work performed due to inadequate technician training and poor maintenance. In addition to direct electrical consumption, ice machines require substantial water to produce ice.

Ice Machine Energy Consumption

Welcome to our enlightening course, where you'll unlock the potential to transform how commercial refrigeration, including ice machines, operates.

Ice Machine service training would only be completed by discussing ice machine energy consumption, including water consumption. The journey ahead is filled with eye-opening revelations about the astounding amount of electrical and water energy these machines consume and the consequential environmental impact.

Imagine the immense amount of electricity and water that commercial refrigeration guzzles. It's a staggering thought. Often, the culprit is not the equipment itself but the oversight of improper maintenance and inadequate training of technicians. This results in an overuse of resources that not only strains our environment but also drains our finances.

Ice machines, often overlooked, are among the most notorious culprits of wastage. Picture a faucet that's left open, ceaselessly gushing water. That's the equivalent of a poorly maintained ice machine. The copious amounts of wasted water deplete our precious water resources and add to the burden of sewage treatment plants. These plants, in turn, consume additional electricity and water to treat the added effluent. This vicious cycle significantly amplifies the environmental footprint of commercial refrigeration.

This course shows you five game-changing strategies to optimize ice machine energy consumption, water use, and waste. We'll empower you with the knowledge to slash sewage and wastewater treatment expenses, guide you to maintain ice machines to their highest efficiency and help you match the type of ice production to your business needs.

You'll learn how to right-size your ice machines and storage bins to minimize runtime and avoid ice losses due to melting. For instance, if your business uses 300 pounds of ice daily, we'll guide you on safely increasing production by 20% to account for melting and minor variations in usage. We’ll teach you how to match your ice machine and storage bin to daily ice production requirements, ensuring you don’t produce overcapacity.

This course equips you with the technical skills to optimize refrigeration and HVAC installation and embeds a sense of responsibility. Responsibility to reduce consumption, lessen environmental impacts, and ultimately generate significant savings on utility bills. Join us on this transformative journey and become an agent of change in commercial refrigeration. It's time to turn the tide in our favor, conserve our resources and protect our environment while saving money. Let's get started!

Below are the topics covered in this course.

  • Areas of wasted water, including installation, component failure, and refrigerant charge deficiencies
  • Overall Energy Management Tactics
  • Load shifting and curtailment
  • Maintenance practices - prevent that unscheduled service calls or health inspection citation
  • Refrigerant Charging by weight methods - refrigeration system performs at rating
  • Refrigerant updates and conversions - refrigerants cannot be mixed or substituted with compromised production
  • Refrigeration piping for remote condensers
  • Tracking energy productions

Five effects of sub-standard electrical energy and water usage:

  • Increased sewage and wastewater treatment expenses. Poorly maintained ice machines that do not operate efficiently or with hidden serviceability issues exponentially impact electricity, water, and sewage discharge.
  • Match the type of ice production to the needs of the business. For example, Flake and nugget ice require less water per pound than a cube ice machine due to the cube machine's added purging and cleaning cycles.
  • Incorrectly sized ice machines and storage bins must be addressed to minimize runtime and ice losses due to melting. Storage bins must be appropriately sized to match the needs of the business.
  • If the business usually uses 300 pounds (136.1kg) of ice during business hours, consider increasing the production by 20% and producing 360 pounds (163.3kg) to account for melting and minor variations in in-service usage.
  • Match the ice machine and storage bin to the daily ice production requirements. Do not gauge ice production by how long it takes to fill the storage bin. For instance, if the current installation has an 800-pound (362.9kg) storage bin and ice production but only serves 300 pounds (136.1kg) daily, the machine unnecessarily produces overcapacity.
