    ASTM F1604

    Abstract

    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 Isoft-serve freezer; Type IIshake freezer; and Type IIIcombination soft-serve and shake freezer; Group 1one freezing cylinder; Group 2two freezing cylinders; Group 3three freezing cylinders; and Group 4four freezing cylinders; Style 1floor mounted; and Style 2countertop; Class 1air-cooled condenser; Class 2liquid-cooled condenser; and Class 3remote air-cooled condenser; Grade 1conventional nonheat-treatment freezer; and Grade 2heat-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.
