Why flake ice is an industry favorite
Flake ice is widely used in foodservice for its special qualities that no other type of ice has.
It is small, soft, and quick-melting, which makes for faster cooling than any other ice. When used in food display and preservation, flake ice conforms to the shape of the product. It does not freeze into lumps in order to maintain a clean, attractive presentation.
For this reason, flake ice is preferred by butchers, delis, buffets, raw food bars, and supermarkets to cool fresh seafood, meat, and vegetables. Flake ice also does an outstanding job of adding moisture in dough mixtures, making it a bakery favorite as well.
The flake ice machines for you
Flake ice machines come in a wide range of production capacity. For smaller operations, there are units that can produce as low as 200 pounds of ice per day. High-volume applications should be well served with flake ice machines that can produce up to 2,000 pounds of ice.
If you are looking for a quick ice-making solution with a tight budget, our air-cooled flake ice machines will provide value and more. Air-cooled flake ice machines are cost-effective because eliminates the need for additional water costs. Water-cooled flake ice machines are excellent choices for businesses that operate in a hotter climate. If your ice production will be set up on a site where there are high amounts of airborne contaminants, these units will fare much better.
You can also get remote-cooled flake ice machines that come in two separate components. The condenser, which is included in a single package in air-cooled and water-cooled units, can be installed in a separate room, even at the roof of your building, so you can keep the environment relaxing and more spacious.
Our flake ice machines are made with premium stainless steel and other long-lasting materials for a durable unit that you can get years of use. Many of these units are certified Energy Star products to help you mitigate energy costs and environmental footprint while still maintaining a large supply of ice to keep your business running!
