Energy-Saving Ice

FEM’s new Manitowoc NEO ice machine is an Energy Star

NEOFoodservice Equipment Marketing (FEM) has launched the Manitowoc NEO UD-0190A icemaker, aimed at medium-sized bars, clubs and catering venues. The latest addition to the NEO range reduces energy and water consumption, cuts running costs and delivers high volumes of quality ice.

The NEO series of modular undercounter ice makers provides an all-in-one solution offering enhanced production capabilities to ensure the venue can keep up with ice demand. The low profile design makes the range ideal for venues where space is limited and where economy of operation is essential.

The UD-0190A is the mid-sized model in the NEO range. It offers 90kg of ice production and 36.36kg of ice storage on a small footprint, making it ideal for front of house or back-bar use. The NEO models produce dice cube ice as standard.

The machine offers new levels in energy efficiency, as highlighted by its Energy Star accreditation. It lowers energy consumption by at least 10% and water usage by at least 25% compared to previous models – saving money and energy throughout its lifetime.

One of the many cost-saving features of the NEO range is its delay function. This means the machine only makes ice when required – it doesn’t waste resources on days when the venue is closed or only open for a limited period of time. Ice production can be delayed for 4, 12 or 24 hours, enabling venues to better manage ice production and save on water and energy costs.

The NEO machines save on maintenance costs and reduce downtime, as they are robust, reliable and simple to maintain and service. The ice storage bin is removable for easy access and cleaning. The pop-out air filter protects against grease and dust, is simple to remove, without tools, and can be washed in a commercial dishwasher.

The Manitowoc NEO UD-0190A is available from FEM with the market’s leading ice maker warranty: five years parts and labour on the evaporator, plus five years parts and three years labour on the compressor, plus three years parts and labour on all other components.

The list price for the Manitowoc NEO UD-0190A is £2,950.00.
