Square Cuber Has an 'Upside Down'
Horizontal Evaporator & Water Plate
Sources from Kold-Draft, Erie, PA, report that the Kold-Draft GB1060 commercial ice maker produces up to 1,000 pounds of ice per day. The GB1060 is stackable, which allows users to double the capacity in the same footprint. Sources also report that Kold-Draft equipment offers some of the best recovery rates in the industry, for more ice, more often. Kold-Draft commercial ice machines produce the only "square cube," known for its perfect shape, purity, hardness, and slower melt rate. All Kold-Draft ice machines feature a unique "upside-down" horizontal evaporator and water plate assembly. As water is sprayed upward into the evaporator cells, the pure water freezes first while particulates and air are forced out and dumped at the end of each cycle. This leaves only perfect, crystal-clear cubes, nearly as pure as distilled water. The GB1060 series' rugged, unibody construction and time-proven design ensure reliable operation, greater water efficiency, and maximum ice-making capacity. They're energy efficient, using R-404A refrigerant. For easier maintenance, the GB1060 is serviceable from the front. It's covered by a five-year "bumper-to-bumper' warranty on all parts and labor. — Kold-Draft
Manifold Gauge Sets Provide Improved Vision, Control
The new Firefly and Vision manifold gauges from Cliplight Manufacturing Co., Toronto, Canada, gives technicians increased vision and control when performing system diagnostics, charging, recovery, and evacuation. The Vision model has a see-through deep well sight glass that's illuminated by ambient light for better viewing of refrigerant and contaminants. The Firefly (shown at right) combines a magnifying glass on the front of the sight glass, with white or blue LED backlighting, to illuminate refrigerant, contaminants, and dye. A vinyl-coated hanger stays where you hang it. Ergonomic, heavy-duty valve handles have calibration rings. Fine throttle control valves are used for liquid charging of blended refrigerants. Cliplight says the Firefly and the Vision model are compatible with all standard refrigerant hoses. They feature a lifetime limited warranty on manifold bar and valves. — Cliplight Manufacturing Co.
