A factory-made assembly (not necessarily shipped in one package) consisting of a condensing unit and ice-making section operating as an integrated unit, with means for making and harvesting ice. It is an assembly that makes up to 4,000 lbs of ice per day at Standard Ratings Conditions, as defined in Section 5.2.1 of ARI Standard 810-2006, and may also include means for storing or dispensing ice, or both.
|List Options||Option Definition||Unit of Measure|
|Remote condensing unit||A Remote condensing unit (RCU) or split system unit is a model in which the ice-making mechanism and condenser or condensing unit are in separate sections.||None|
|Air cooled||Air-Cooled: An ice machine wherein motor driven fans or centrifugal blowers move air through the condenser to remove heat from the refrigerant.||None|
|Ice making head||An ice making head (IMH) is a model with the ice-making mechanism and the condensing unit in a single package, but with a separate ice storage bin.||None|
|Cubed||Cubed: Cubed ice machines have an alternate freezing and harvesting period. Water is circulated over an evaporator where it freezes until cubes are fully formed. The cubed ice is then harvested and moved to storage. The ice may be in cube shape, or in a variation of a solid shape.||None|
|Flake||Flake: Flake ice machines produce ice continuously, usually in a barrel-shaped evaporator. An auger inside the evaporator scrapes ice off the sides into a storage bin.||None|
|Not applicable||Not applicable||None|
|Nugget||Nugget: Nugget ice machines use the same process as flake machines but compress the ice flakes into nuggets.||None|
|Self contained unit||Self-Contained (SCU): A model in which the ice-making mechanism and storage compartment are in an integral cabinet.||None|
