Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers the design, performance, and certification requirements pertinent to the construction of commercial ice cream, soft serve, and shake freezers that freeze and dispense frozen products (dairy, yogurt, custard, etc.) on a continuous basis. The ice cream freezers are classified into types according to frozen product produced, groups according to number of cylinders, styles according to mountability, classes according to condenser type, and grades freezing mechanism, as follows: Type I—soft-serve freezer; Type II—shake freezer; and Type III—combination soft-serve and shake freezer; Group 1—one freezing cylinder; Group 2—two freezing cylinders; Group 3—three freezing cylinders; and Group 4—four freezing cylinders; Style 1—floor mounted; and Style 2—countertop; Class 1—air-cooled condenser; Class 2—liquid-cooled condenser; and Class 3—remote air-cooled condenser; Grade 1—conventional nonheat-treatment freezer; and Grade 2—heat-treatment freezer. The freezers shall conform to electrical, steel fabrication, lubrication, interchangeability, refrigerant, insulation, and other performance and operational requirements, and should function satisfactorily as specified.
