Patented Intelligent Defrost
Viper expertly manages/optimizes defrost times so that your unit only goes into defrost when you need to. Without this, a unit will go into defrost on average 4x per day which leads to downtime and potentially missed sales.
The intelligent defrost works by taking an average of the syrup poured over a 3-hour window. If the average is more than 25oz/hour (35oz/hour for Diet syrup), then the Viper knows it is okay and will bypass the defrost. It will query dispensed data again later to see if it needs to go into defrost.
We also have the option of setting defrost lock out times - so if you absolutiely didn't want the unit to go into defrost during a certain time period, you can adjust these settings accordingly.

Ice Maker & Dispenser
The most common complaint we hear from customers is that their current ice maker is not keeping up with demand. The good news if for 95% of our customers you will not need to purchase the most expensive model that produces the greatest volume of ice however you do need to consider the model that will support your operation long term.
As a general rule of thumb, for each beverage poured consider ½ volume of cup will be filled with ice. For example, a 16 oz cup would be filled with 8 oz. of ice. If you serve 400 cups of dispensed beverages per day you would need an ice maker that at a minimum produces 200 lbs. of ice per 24 hours. Remember, you will want to support future beverage sales growth.
Your United Fast Food Sales Representative will work with you to determine your specific needs based on volume of foot traffic, peak rush period, if your operation offers refills, etc. United offers a great selection of ice maker models to choose from and will make sure to help you select the right model to match your volume need.
Maybe you have experienced this situation, everything is humming along, and it seems instantaneously you find yourself out of ice. The rush hit and the ice bin is completely empty. Adding to this scenario is when it takes an exceedingly long time for a new ice cube to drop. In short, your ice maker isn’t cutting it during your busiest times of operation. So not only is the volume of ice production important but also how quickly the ice can be replenished is another very important consideration when looking at the different ice maker models. An ice maker with a high production rate will produce new ice quickly helping you keep up the supply levels you need during busy times.
The good news is not every operation needs an ice machine with a high-speed production rate. If there is an adequate holding area (ice bin) the stored ice may carry you through your operation’s peak rush times. On the flipside, if you have a small ice bin then selecting an ice maker model with higher production rate speed would be a good choice. You will be able to refill your ice quickly as you need it. By answering a few questions your United Account Manager will help you not only select the right ice maker model so you have ice when you need it most.
Air Cooled Condenser
Air-cooled machines are the most popular option because they’re energy efficient, affordable, and use far less water than water-cooled ice machines. As the name suggests, they use the circulation of air to maintain the necessary temperatures for the machine to work efficiently. The advantage to an air-cooled unit is that is less expensive to maintain and run because the entire condensing unit is inside the ice machine and requires no additional wiring beyond the main electrical connection. An important consideration is the amount of space surrounding the unit. Is the airflow minimum requirement met? Without adequate airflow the unit will be under duress and not operate efficiently. If space is tight, you may wish to consider the remote condensing units.
Water Cooled Condenser
A water-cooled ice maker also has a condenser enclosed within the unit similar to the air-cooled dispensers discussed above. The difference is that instead of blowing air across a condenser to remove heat a water-cooled machine uses cool water. This method involves a constant source of cool water in addition to the machine's potable water supply. Because it requires a large amount of water each hour, water-cooled equipment is not a popular choice for most consumers. A water-cooled ice machine can be a good choice if your area has low water costs. In general, water-cooled ice machines can be a good choice if your ice machine will be located somewhere where the ambient temperatures are high or where there is limited air circulation. This is a good option if you have a recirculating water-system.
A remote condenser uses the same technology as air-cooled models; however, the condenser is installed outside of the building usually on the building’s roof. These are very helpful where keeping the room temperature cool is difficult. Refrigerant is piped from the ice machine to the condenser, where it's cooled and sent back to the machine. The greatest advantages of a remote condenser is the heat and noise of the unit is removed from the building. It will put less demand on your HVAC system and also create a much quieter environment for customers. Your United Account Manager can help with site surveys and provide practical advice on selecting the best type of system for your specific needs and budget.
