    But aren't some plates integral with the molded plastic ?
    The Scotsman CM/CME evaporators are like that.

    As for replating, I have only seen it done one time about 25 years ago on a Manitowoc G-series, back when their evaporators were failing so bad they (quietly) extended the warranty to 8 years. Soebody had taken the evaporator to a local plating shop to get it re-nickeled. It was a total fail in opinion. The coverage was good and thick, but it had bumps, runs and what appeared to be foreign material in the nickel. I figured they weren't big on the finer points of plating. The finished reminded me of when my father took a couple dozen 2˝ gal ice cream tubs and covers to a shop for re-plating. Probably a quick acid dip & rinse and then straight to the plating tank.

    Anyway, the re-plated evaporator worked as poorly as a flaking one...except it was shiny.

    I had a similar problem, I tried thinking of something and just replaced the whole unit.

    Most cases the evap is so expensive it's not worth replacing just the evap so I Replace the whole thing and end up gutting it and keeping the compressor,sensors,fan motors and whatever else is still good.

    I don’t work on many ice machines so here’s a question for y’all if you don’t mind.
    An older Scotsman machine at a site of mine has a good deal of pitting and erosion on the nickel plated sheets.

    What is the end result of it pitting out and not a perfect finish??
    Seems like the older it gets the less ice it makes.
    Water cooled condenser, charge weighed in and flow rate set to proper head pressure on condenser .
    Seems like it stays in harvest longer than it used to before dropping ice.
    Just curious.

    Old enough to be a mechanically timed harvest or electronic ?

    I’m not sure on the tin or nickel plating, but the harvest is viewed by photo eyes in the drop area. Just curious what degrading plates would affect.

    Quality of the ice I.e. metallic flakes in ice.
