GEM-MFI SERIES Remote Condenser Location
Page 8
Use the following for planning the placement of the remote condenser relative to the ice machine.
Location Limits: Remote condenser location must not exceed ANY of the following:
Maximum rise from the ice machine to the remote condenser is 35 physical feet.
Maximum drop from the ice machine to the remote condenser is 15 physical feet.
Physical line set maximum length is 100 feet.
Calculated line set length maximum is 150 feet.
Calculation Formula
Drop = dd x 6.6 (dd= distance in feet)
Rise = rd x 1.7 (rd = distance in feet)
Horizontal Run = hd x 1 (hd = distance in feet)
Calculation: Drop(s) + Rise(s) + Horizontal Run = dd+rd+hd=Calculated Line Length
Configurations that do NOT meet these requirements must receive written authorization from
Ice-O-Matic. This includes multipass or rack system remote condensers.
Do NOT:
Route a line set that rises, then falls, then rises.
Route a line set that falls, then rises, then falls.
Calculation Example 1:
The remote condenser is to be located 5 feet below the ice machine and then 20 feet away horizontally.
(5 feet x 6.6=33 feet) + (20 feet) = 53 feet. This location would be acceptable.
Calculation Example 2:
The remote condenser is to be located 35 feet above the ice machine and then 100 feet away horizontally.
(35 feet x 1.7=59.5 feet) + (100 feet) = 159.5 feet. 159.5 feet is greater than the 150 maximum is NOT
acceptable.
