Our range of Scotsman Ice Systems includes a broad offering of self contained or modular ice makers and a range of optional storage bin combinations. All Scotsman ice makers and storage bin include an Agion technology aimed to resist the development of unpleasant odours and growth of microbes within.
The cleanest and purest form, free from impurities or contamination due to its horizontal evaporator system. Round shaped gourmet cubes offer slower dilution allowing for drinks to stay cooler for longer.
The EC, MXG ice systems and DXG dispenser are an air-cooled system that produces individual crystal-clear gourmet style cube of ice. Equipped with horizontal ice evaporator spray-system technology and clean alert indicator to clean the filter, these systems also have robust stainless steel exterior suitable for commercial use.
Dice cube ice:
One of the most common types of ice due to its universal use in beverages, bulk cooling and ice bagging. It provides a greater surface area for heat exchange, which chills fast. A classic size sided dice ice with a large surface area allows for rapid chilling. Dice ice is available in a variety of sizes.
NU, NW and C Series are all air-cooled system that produces individual dice cube ice with vertical evaporator spray-system technology and a one-touch cleaning mode for labour and time-saving.
Nugget/ Cubelet Ice:
A compress flake ice in micro size cubes (nuggets) or irregular chips (cubelets) are commonly used within the quick service restaurant industry with compatible storage bins and dispensers to compliment. Due to its small cube size, nuggets and cubelet ice are a popular addition to drink items such as carbonated drinks and smoothies. They have a slower melting rate and are softer and easier to chew.
The TC 180, AFC and MFN Series are air-cooled systems that are equipped with stainless steel auger ice evaporator. Both TC 180 and AFC series produce cubelet ice and the MFN Series produce Nugget ice.
TC 180 Series is a compact countertop ice and water dispenser.
AFC Series has a built-in storage bin and PWD-progressive water discharge function for pumping excess residual water up to 15 meters.
MFN Series ice maker is built with a hermetic compressor with double protection electronic rotation sensor and drive coupling to maximise performance.
The most natural shape and it is highly versatile for merchandising presentation, product preservation. It cools rapidly and moulds into different shapes.
The AF/ EF Series both have built-in storage bins, freezing cylinder evaporator and stainless steel auger. With the PWD-Progressive water discharge function, the EF Series has the ability to pump the excess residual water up to 15 meters away.
The MF Series also has a freezing cylinder evaporator and stainless steel auger, however, it requires a separate storage bin. This series also comes with a low-water sensor and double protection on electronic rotation sensor & drive coupling, ensuring disruption of the daily ice production is reduced to the minimal.
Large, flat, thin pieces of ice with less than 2% residual water content. With slow and regular melting rate, scale ice is ideal to use for industrial process, perishable goods transportation and seafood displays.
See range: MAR Series
The MAR Series is an air-cooled head only ice maker that requires a separate storage bin. It has an ice scraper blade and stainless steel evaporating drum, low-water sensor protection and a drive motor reducer with a V-Belt drive to maximise production.
Scotsman has developed a range of environmentally friendly EcoX ice machines using a range of natural refrigerant gases.
Ice storage systems:
Scotsman ice storage systems are fully insulated and easy to clean or maintain. The NB and UBH Series offers a range of slope and upright ice storage bins that can be used with the range of modular ice maker heads. Ranging from 109kg to 812kg storage capacity allows operators to select their ideal ice production requirements to meet their own unique demands. The SIS Series ice transport system is used to facilitate ice transportation with a "first-in-first-out" hygienic approach.
