In the Jan. 11, 2012 Federal Register the U.S. Department of Energy published a final rule amending the test procedure for automatic commercial icemakers (ACIM).

The existing test procedure was amended with the adoption of AHRI Standard 810-2007 with Addendum 1 and ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 29-2009.

The final rule also expands the scope of the rule to include all batch-type and continuous-type icemakers with capacities between 50 and 4,000 lb of ice per 24 hours. The final rule also:
• standardizes test results based on ice hardness for continuous-type icemakers
• clarifies test methods and reporting requirements for automatic ice makers designed to be connected to a remote compressor rack
• discontinued the use of a clarified energy use equation

Instead of the clarified energy use equation, the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) explained the new rule calculates energy use per 100 lb of ice as specified in ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 29-2009.

The final rule changes will be mandatory for equipment testing starting January 7, 2013.
