Brema Ice Makers are available with inbuilt drainage pumps, Water cannot travel uphill

Ice machines play a critical role in hospitality businesses.

For many food businesses, an undercounter ice maker is the ideal choice. With undercounter ice machines you have two options regarding the choice of drainage systems: a gravity drain or an inbuilt drain pump.

It is imperative that there is some form of drainage nearby as ice makers have a constant requirement for removing water, especially during the defrost cycle. However, in many situations there is not adequate drainage available, for a host of reasons. The drain pump therefore, is designed to remove excess water from ice machines installed in areas without direct drainage access. Remember, water cannot travel uphill, without assistance!

Improve the performance of your ice machine.

There is nothing worse than buying a new ice machine, only to have it breakdown consistently.

Did you know that more than 60% of warranty issues with new undercounter ice machines are typically related to drainage problems? And of course, a drainage problem is not a warrantable item, so you will have to pay for the service call yourself!

So, by purchasing an icemaker with a drain pump you significantly reduce the chance that your machine will cause you problems.

Warning: failure to provide an adequate drainage system can result in surrounding water damage and/or poor ice production. Also water on the floor can create an WHS issue for your staff.
