Foster Ice Makers

Fosters have four free standing units that are designed to produce you quality ice time and again. With ice produced at very low temperatures, from -15'c down to -25'c at the time of harvest  you get harder ice cubes that last longer while machine life is extended thanks to the Ice production tray being flushed after every cycle - virtually eliminates the risk of limescale build up - ensures hygienic, crystal clear ice free from impurities.

The Machine makes Supercubes which are the most popular type of ice cubes; these are the perfect choice for restaurants, pubs, and clubs.

WATER FILTER/SOFTNERS
It is most important to have a water filter/softener in line with your Ice machine. Without a water filter as ice is produced the remaining cold water in the machine becomes more and more concentrated with calcium etc. This calcium deposits on the components inside the ice maker, putting a coating on the evaporator and causing pumps to fail. More electricity is required to produce ice when the evaporator is coated with scale and eventually an expensive service call will be required, which is chargeable.

Remember, Fit a water filter in line with your ice machine, run a cleaning solution through your machine regularly, and clean the condenser regularly. Following these simple procedures will give your ice machine a long and economical life
