    You mean FCB (Frozen Carbonated Beverage) machines?


    Good luck.

    You'll NEED it.


    Get a refractometer. You can thank me later.

    Is a tool used to quickly determine the concentration of a fluid.

    I have one for Glycol. A co-worker has one for Sucrose. I may be getting one for POE pretty soon.

    I think once I get into them more the company will pony up for one.
    I can not believe all the parts they cram into them.
    Seems like a long hard way to make some pop with ice in it.

    Talk to a factory tech.

    The "Brix" or syrup concentration in the mix is CRITICAL in achieving a proper freeze in these machines. Too rich and it won't freeze, too lean and it freezes too hard.

    Many problems, at least around here, were on-going problems and were solved by fairly simple adustements to the Brix.

    The refractometer is as important as your wrenches in checking out one of these machines.

    If you want to get good at fixing them, come work for the 7/11 chain in Winnipeg MB, Canada.

    According to 7/11 our city sold the most slurpees in the world for the 11th year in a row.

    Worked on FCB Equipment for many years, I got to know them like the back of my hand. Refractometer is very important in order to adjust the brix, it can be challenging at times but some machines are easier than others, I personally loved working on Cornelius, Pinnacle's are the most troublesome to work on, Mag drives always go bad. Good luck.
