Most ice cream machines are used on a range from 208 to 230 volts, either in single or three-phase power.
Refrigeration systems are optimized for evaporator size, with the proper compressor, condenser and air movement for maximum efficiency.
Ice cream machine manufacturers have reduced motor amperage on some units, which has decreased electrical consumption. When demand for usage is low, operators can activate switches on these systems to reduce the frequency of refrigeration system cooling. This helps increase energy efficiency.
