May 8, 2015 – The Follett integrated icemaker bin is designed to produce
up to 425 pounds of ice over a 24-hour period with more than 90 pounds of
storage, the company said in a press release.

The machine comes with a choice of the company’s proprietary
Micro Chewblet or flake ice.

The bin can be used in a freestanding or undercounter
application. At 24 inches wide with no side, top, or rear clearance required,
it can fit into almost any foodservice operation where space is at a premium,
the company said. It is ideal for locations such as delis, coffee shops, bars
and smoothie shops.

Built with Follett’s Maestro Plus ice machine’s stainless
steel evaporator, auger and top bearing, the bin is engineered to provide
durability and reliability. It features an oversized, heavy-duty and tapered
roller bearing to help ensure long low-maintenance life and has no noisy
harvest cycles.

Regular self-flushing improves the quality of ice and
reduces scale. According to Follett, the ice machine uses 25 per cent less
energy and 40 per cent less water than comparable capacity cube machines.

Designed for easy installation and maintenance, the bin shroud
may be removed for service and installation and the rear is recessed to allow
for easy utility hookup. With the bin shroud removed, utility hookups may be
accessed even in undercounter applications with no side clearance.

Care must be taken to locate the machine in close proximity
to a drain. For undercounter installations, the floor drain must be within six
feet. In freestanding applications, eight-inch drain height allows for much
greater drain runs.

The icemaker bin ships beginning May 15.
