Commercial ice cream machines with fast start-up and product consistency

Commercial ice cream machines for gelato, frozen ice, sorbet and yogurt ice cream are self-contained machines refrigerated by air and/or water cooling systems inside the machine. These machines produce soft ice cream for consumption on streets or in cafés, restaurants, small pastry shops, and convenience stores. They typically operate as dessert machines in small spaces and in the summertime with high ambient temperatures which present challenging operating conditions for the internal components.

Danfoss offers a wide range of compact, durable, mechanical, electronic controls and compressors that meet many of the demands of the ice cream production process.

Our product range and compatibility of the products with machine design ensure fast start-up and product consistency. 

Danfoss also provides a full range of components qualified for HFC and HC refrigerants along with technical support to help optimize the design of the refrigerant circuit when converting to new refrigerants.

Owners of these popular commercial ice cream machines require:

  • Accurate temperature control to comply with HACCP principles and to ensure an appetizing consistency
  • Low sound level
  • Compactness – especially for the small pastry shop or street vendor
  • Energy efficiency
  • Reliability
