LEIMM is a Hankscraft-developed, Hankscraft-patented low-energy twist-tray ice maker module. Unlike conventional ice cube makers, there is no ice tray heater. This results in the freezer staying at a stable temperature, resulting in lower energy use, improved food quality, and more usable space. The LEIMM is designed to meet NSF standards and utilizes FDA-approved materials. LEIMM is a reference design that can be adapted to a variety of sizes and configurations.

Environmental Benefit

Heater-style ice makers can consume 84 kW/year. Hankscraft’s LEIMM uses only 0.25 kW/year, or 0.07% of the energy consumed by heater-style ice makers. LEIMM lets freezers stay colder longer, with less power.


Compact Size

The compact size of Hankscraft’s LEIMM creates extra space, providing more shelf space in standard freezers while still leaving room to store frozen foods. Where every inch matters, LEIMM allows for an additional inch of clearance; its narrow design allows more shelf space in the freezer.
