Ice-O-Matic has launched the Elevation Series of ice machines, designed to ‘simplify life’.
The ice machine manufacturer has initially launched four modular ice cube models, which all meet or exceed the 2018 Department of Energy (DOE) regulations. Ice-O-Matic claims that the series is up to 20% more energy efficiency than any other model on the market. The range is designed with the environment in mind, including BPA-free plastic and recyclable parts.
The Elevation Series is said to be easy to install, with digital diagnostics for easy usage, cleaning and servicing. The unit’s LED light indicates when cleaning is required, and includes a one-touch cleaning, descaling and sanitising feature.
The Dual Exhaust feature is standard on every Elevation Series unit and discharges hot air from both the side and the top, so the ice maker can be a solution for tight space, negating the need for kits to adjust airflow. Ice-O-Matic claims the Elevation Series is the only range on the market to not require a kit.
Adam Lenton, marketing manager for Classeq, which is the exclusive supplier for Ice-O-Matic in the UK, said: “The new Ice-O-Matic Elevation Series range is a step forward for the industry as a whole. Many of the range’s features are a first for the hospitality sector and the design is ‘genius in its simplicity’ allowing for ease of operation, cleanliness and value.
“Features such as the hot air discharge is a step change for users in how machines can be sited to optimise bar space and increasingly, environmental issues are driving technological advancement and progression.”
The range can be viewed on the new Elevation microsite. The site features the first new ‘LG1 models’ at this time, but with range expansion planned across 2018, this site will expand to incorporate the new models as they become available.
