Vollrath Frozen Beverage Granita Machine: Operation

Vollrath Frozen Beverage Granita Machine: Operation

You have properly set up, washed, and sanitized your Vollrath frozen beverage counter top dispenser. It’s time to learn how to operate it safely and effectively. To ensure the highest product quality, safe operation, and long life from your dispenser, familiarize yourself with the components and operation of the unit by reading the operator’s manual. Let’s go over some of the basic controls.

The dispensers equipped with a main power switch and a light switch. In addition, each bowl is individually operated by a cold drink and frozen beverage switch. This function makes it possible to dispense both cold drinks and frozen beverages from one machine. When the bowl is set to cold drink mode, the desired beverage temperature is controlled by the corresponding temperature control knob for each bowl. When the bowl is set to frozen beverage mode, the desired frozen mix consistency is controlled by the corresponding adjustment screw for each bowl. Temperature control knob is not used in the frozen beverage mode.

Now that your familiar with the controls, it’s time to put your machine to work. Be sure to sanitize immediately before use. To remove any remaining sanitizing solution or a small amount of potable water of prepared beverage mix into the bowl to flush out any remaining sanitizing solution. Drain the bowl. Make sure the spigot is in place and in the closed position. Fill the bowl with a desired product making sure not to exceed the maximum liquid capacity of your model. When using freeze dried bases or mixes that need to be diluted with water prepare the product in a separate container and pour into the dispenser when it is thoroughly mixed and completely dissolved. If using fully prepared mixes, follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully to properly use the product.

If using natural products like coffee, lemon, or orange juice in a separate container dissolve three and a half to seven ounces of sugar into each quart of product depending on the sweetness desired. After filling the bowl with chilled mix replace the cover. To start the dispensers turn the main power switch to the on position. For cold drinks set the cold drinks and frozen beverage switch to the number one position. For frozen beverages set the cold drinks and frozen beverage switch to the number two position. Finally, set the light switch to the on position.

Here are a few more helpful for optimal operation. The time required to make servable product may vary based on factors such as the surrounding air temperature, initial product temperature, density adjustment, sugar, or if the mix contains dairy, the fat content of the mix. Filling the bowl with precooled product decreases the time needed to serve cold or frozen products from the dispenser. Reduce your recovery time by refilling the bowls with product before the product level is below the halfway point of the cooling cylinder. Operating the dispenser in frozen beverage mode unattended for long periods of time such as overnight is not recommended. To store product in the machine overnight, simply position the cold drink and frozen beverage switch to the cold drink setting. To return the product to frozen beverage mode, position the cold drink and frozen beverage switch to the two position, one hour before your desired serving time. Finally, frozen beverage consistency adjustment is simply made by using a standard screwdriver to turn the adjustment screw located on each bowl. Turn the screw clockwise for thicker product or counter clockwise for thinner product. For additional features, product information, and helpful hints visit us online at Vollrath.com.

Customer questions about this product

Can I add alcohol in my drinks with this slushy machine?
You should first check the overall sugar content with a refractometer to determine if it is suitable for alcohol. It may also be a good idea to test out a recipe with alcohol so that you can know exactly how to achieve the desired result before advertising alcoholic slush drinks. Also check local laws to be sure you can serve alcoholic beverages from one of these machines.
About how long does it take for drink mix to freeze in a slushy machine?
The actual figure will vary depending on the machine and other factors like whether or not alcohol is included in the recipe. Generally speaking, though, most machines can freeze a tank of non-alcoholic drink mix in about 30 - 40 minutes but use any guides or references that the manufacturer provides to get an idea of the true figure.

Vollrath VCBF128-37 Details

Cool your customers off with a delicious frozen beverage and do so in style with the Vollrath VCBF128-37 dual 2.6 gallon frozen beverage machine! Whether you're adding it to your restaurant, convenience store, or bar, this machine is exactly what you need to streamline and boost your frozen beverage service. Capable of serving anything from granitas and smoothies to iced or frozen coffee/tea and frozen cocktails, this unit is sure to substantially expand your beverage menu.

Dual 10 liter bowls are designed with a clear, highly visible casing so your beverages can be clearly identified. Alternatively, you can upgrade to a double walled bowl (sold separately) to eliminate the chance of condensation build-up. An interior bowl light illuminates your beverages, thus showcasing their vibrant colors and helping them sell themselves. Easy-to-use controls are both intuitive and customizable enough to offer an array of different drink styles. A frozen beverage mode will allow you to make adjustments to temperature, while the granita setting lets you adjust the consistency until it is ideal. Each bowl operates independently from the other and can be switched on/off or between granita/frozen beverage modes.

A magnetic drive system is reliable, durable, and easy to maintain. As opposed to a mechanical drive system there is much less wear on the parts of a magnetically driven motor, which will give your machine more longevity and will result in less service calls. The large freezing surface and properly sized compressor reduce freeze down times and promotes efficient operation. This means that when you turn on the machine at the start of your businesses operation, there is much less waiting time for your beverages to reach optimal temperature. When it comes time for cleanup, the gasketless spigot will make cleaning and sanitation much easier than a traditional gasketed model. This unit requires a 120V electrical connection for operation.
