Icemaker


Icemaker

An icemaker is a device often found inside a freezer that is used to make ice. Ice machine usually refers to a standalone appliance that is built for making large quantities of ice. Commercial ice cube makers improve the quality of ice by using moving water. Basically the faster the water moves the better the ice quality. Air and undissolved solids will be washed away to such an extent that in horizontal evaporator machines the water has 98% of the solids removed resulting in very hard virtually pure ice. In vertical evaporators the ice is softer, more so if there are actual individual cube cells.
