Ice machine cooling tower
« on: June 14, 2012, 04:09:24 PM »
I want to build a cooling tower for a Manitowoc ice mach m#: QY1305W.

I know the basic principles for building it but would like help on the details.

I need to fugue out the overall size of the structure, the size of the reservoir, the sump capacity and if I need to incorporate a fan.

Anybody with any experience with this please help.

Thanks

So you are saying you want to build a reservoir for an existing unit? The old one must be rusted out?
May the hinges of our friendship
        never grow rusty.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL
