Automatic ice-makers

Energy Efficiency Regulations

Technical requirements

Regulatory definition
Factory-assembled automatic ice-makers that have a standard capacity rating of between 23 and 1000 kilograms per day (kg/d) that produce cubed, flaked, crushed or fragmented ice, in either a batch or a continuous process

Note:

  • includes self-contained and split-system machines
  • excludes ice-makers installed in household refrigerators, refrigerator-freezers or freezers, automatic ice-dispensing machines and cold-plate drink dispensers

Test standard
CAN/CSA-C742-98

Compliance date
January 1, 2008
Regulated since December 31, 1998

EnerGuide label
