Ice Machine Installation Planning

$195.00

Selecting the correct ice machine application relevant to the business and installation site takes considerable planning to ensure that all (or as many as possible) contingencies are met before purchasing and installing new ice machines. The factory installation instructions pick up after the preliminary site design and survey are undertaken.

Selecting the correct ice machine application relevant to the business and installation site takes considerable planning to ensure that all (or as many as possible) contingencies are met before purchasing and installing new ice machines. The factory installation instructions pick up after the preliminary site design and survey are undertaken.

Making ice machine installations without proper training can be dangerous. It is crucial to ensure that any person involved in the installation process is adequately trained to handle and install the equipment properly. Failure to do so could result in improper installation, electrical or water leaks, or other damage that could ultimately lead to costly repairs or replacements. Drainage deficiencies can create dangerous foodborne illnesses with nearly unlimited legal liability.

Additionally, it is vital to ensure that necessary permits are obtained before installation to comply with building and safety codes. An ice machine installation can quickly become a costly mistake without proper training and complaince.

This course explores the details of fulfilling the preliminary considerations and planning steps to help ensure an expertly directed installation.

The topics in this course include:

  • Installation Location-Balance the installation while considering HVAC loads, employee and customer access, and workplace hazards.
  • Blended Installation- From a technical service life expectation mixing a new head with an old remote condenser (or vice versa) is not recommended. Find out why.
  • Noise Pollution-Customers don’t like machinery noise in their service areas, and loud machinery noises are fatiguing to overcome by employees.
  • Production of Ice-How much ice is needed to be balanced against overproduction?
  • Selecting the Best Condenser Design -air-cooled or water-cooled, remote or unitary.
  • Installation Space Requirements include planning for service access and airflow.
  • Storage Bin- Over and under-capacity considerations lead to wasted energy and water.
  • Usage Requirements-Is the ice produced the best match for the business needs?
  • Ventilation and HVAC Loads- Every additional heat load discharged in the occupied production space

 

This course does NOT include any brazing or soldering information. Please read the course description above carefully.
