    Vogt ice machine

    I've never seen one in person, but as I am always wanting to learn. How do these actually work? I mean, the tube ice process? What does the evap look like and so on. I'd love to see some pics or a youtube (I checked, there aren't any) video. Living in a small market area, I don't expect to ever have the chance to work on one, but you can always learn and apply that knowledge elswhere!

    When you see a Vogt in action you wont forget it. Its an amazing machine. They do things a little different from other manufacturers and have exceptional product support.

    We have 9 Vogt tube ice machines on site. They are great machines, I love servicing them. If you have any specific questions after you read the manual I can help you out.

    Ours are all water cooled. Last year we had a condenser bust and flooded the whole system. We had the machine totally tore down draining water out and drying it up. The old scroll compressor only ran about 10 minutes after we restarted it, It locked up the bearing where washed out from the flood we didn't think it would run long but we wanted to try it anyway. After the compressor replacement and a lot of suction and liquid line dryer changes it's been running for a year without any problems.

    These machines hold allot of refrigerant too.
