Machine Capacity. The capacity of a machine can be measured by the servings it produces per minute. Since you need more electricity to produce more volume, higher volume means higher costs. Each serving is a 4 ounce cup, Low Volume = 1 to 2 servings per minute, medium Volume = about 4 servings per minute, high Volume = about 7 servings per minute. Our recommendation is that for self-serve venues you purchase multiple low volume machines & spread them out in your shop. If you have a full behind-the-counter service venue or a venue that is focused on the sale of frozen yogurt, we suggest you purchase a few high volume machines to produce larger volumes faster.
Mix Alarm, a mix alarm (also called a "Low mix alarm") is an alarmbeeper that lets you know when the product mix is running too low. It also automatically shuts down your compressor & dasher. This is extremely helpful because if your product runs low, it might freeze causing the blades & tubes in your machine to get damaged.
