Eco-friendly Ice Makers

Scots Ice Australia is proud to introduce Scotsman MF59 and MF69 ice flakers. These eco-friendly ice machines run carbon dioxide (CO²) as the refrigerant. No hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) gases are used and the machine is carbon neutral so these truly are environmentally friendly ice machines.

Scotsman is leading the way with green innovations as the European Community is committed to obtain a reduction in emissions of
 greenhouse gases by 8% in the period from 2008 to 2012 compared to 1990 levels according to the Kyoto Protocol and these have a high global warming potential (GWP).

Scotsman developed this Green Series and decided to work on CO² as a coolant for ice makers because:

• CO² has a GWP of 1 (whereas normal R404 refrigerant gases have a GWP of 3750)
• No toxicity
• Natural gas
• Very good thermodynamic properties
• Non flammable
• Low cost
• Zero ODP (ozone depleting potential)

The MF59 ice flaker is now available at Cafeideas.
