Laboratory ice machines with pre-programmed quantities of ice at a time and limited capacity of containers for ice storage.
Therefore, for large quantities of laboratory ice, it is often necessary to make ice several times and take it for use one at a time.
This will also inevitably lead to the problem of ice being full but not used.
Can I turn off the ice machine at this time? Will the ice in the ice machine melt when it is switched off?
This issue needs to be dealt with according to the actual ice machine!
In the case of laboratory ice machines with an ice full sensor, the automatic sensor activates when the ice is full and the system control automatically stops the ice production without the user having to turn it off manually.
Does the ice inside the ice machine melt when it is switched off?
The ice machine does not only make ice but also stores it, not as long as a fridge but long enough.
It is of course advisable to make as much ice as possible and to remove the ice when it is full, as it is not good for the laboratory ice machine itself if the ice is left out for a long time.
