Commercial automatic ice makers are available in two basic types:
- Batch-type (or cube-type) units make clear, regularly-shaped ice cubes generally used in the food service industry to cool beverages.
- Continuous-type (or flaker-type) units make irregular flakes or chips of ice generally used in grocery, food processing, scientific and other industrial settings.
Commercial automatic ice makers are also classified by their key characteristics:
- ice-making head in which the ice-making machinery, including freezing, harvesting and condensing components, is integrated into one unit that does not include a means for storing ice.
- remote condensing in which the ice-making mechanism and condenser or condensing unit are in separate sections.
- remote condensing (but not remote compressor)
- remote condensing and remote compressor
- self-contained in which the ice-making machinery, including freezing, harvesting and condensing components, and storage compartment, are in an integral cabinet
