Ice Machine Scale Ice

The scale produced by the ice machine is a "secondary cooling" produced around -7 °C because it requires enough brittleness to crack from the drum. A cold temperature means that it is cold enough to refreeze its own melt water, so if it is allowed to melt during storage or use, it will begin to form large chunks that may be difficult to use.

Although the cooler temperature does not give the ice more cooling energy and may cause some problems at ambient temperature, it means it can be stored below 0 °C for long-term storage without adverse effects.
