Follett Corp. is pleased to announce that all Horizon™ self-contained air-cooled ice machines are now ENERGY STAR® qualified. In addition, single phase remote condensing units of the 1000, 1400, and 1650 series models are qualified. This represents the broadest offering of extruded ice machines in the industry that have been awarded the ENERGY STAR.
Horizon ice machines utilize an industry-exclusive aluminum bronze evaporator that's twice as conductive as stainless steel, according to the company. The unique horizontal evaporator design reduces the load on the gear motor. With continuous ice production, the cycle is never reversed for ice removal like cube icemakers, and it uses 40 percent less water than comparable cubers.
