    This specification covers the design, performance, and certification requirements pertinent to the construction of commercial automatic ice making machines used in manufacturing and processing ice, including the attached equipment used in storing and dispensing the produced ice for human consumption. This specification does not apply to icemakers of the tray type, ice vending machines, icemakers and icemaker kits used in household refrigerators or freezers, and block ice manufacturing plants. The ice machines covered here are classified into the following types, grades, classes, and styles: Type Iice machine with or without ice storage bin; Type IIicemaker-dispenser machine; and Type IIIice dispenser; Grade 1self-contained air-cooled condenser; Grade 2self-contained water-cooled condenser; Grade 3remote water-cooled; and Grade 4remote air-cooled; Class Acubed ice; Class Bflaked ice; Class Cnugget ice; and Class Dother ice shapes; Style 1corrosion-resisting steel cabinet; Style 2carbon steel cabinet; and Style 3plastic cabinet. Representative production models of the ice making machines shall pass the performance and operational tests, and should function satisfactorily as specified.
