Horizon Elite 1010 and 1410 series ice machines have a revolutionary new water management design that offers foodservice operators a low cost of ownership and superior performance even in the most challenging water conditions. By dramatically reducing scale build-up while remaining very water efficient, Horizon Elite saves maintenance costs by reducing the need for frequent cleanings, reduces or eliminates the expense of water treatment systems such as reverse osmosis, and produces purer ice that dispenses more reliably.
