    Not flaking just eroding ,
    so it doesn’t effect production or heat exchange etc???

    IT affects harvesting to the point where some ice may be left behind, when it gets really bad, the ice can tend to stick to the evaporator. That also happens if any of the cross links on the evaporator are loose.

    Normally they flake, without seeing it, it's hard to say but if you are seeing a reduced production of ice, perhaps the culprit is the evaporator.

    That was tin and it affects production. Those run the water pump in harvest and the longer the ice is stuck there the more the ice gets melted away.

    I would not recommend that....plating evaporators is a very technical process. I would change the evaporator for many reasons. Or replace the machine

    That machine is bad about losing the batch water too

    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.
    I have never seen an older Scotsman CME plate look new for more than a month or two of service. They quickly look stained and pitted and bare, but they usually keep on working. There are still quite a few in regular service in my area.
