Spec Sheets for Analysis

For your type of company, what type of ice is ideal? Forms: Three different types of ice are created by ice machines, including various cube sizes and designs as well as flaked or nugget ice.

  1. Cubes: There are two sizes of cube ice available; half cubes or whole cubes. Spec sheets provide data on the size of the cubes that are formed by an ice machine. Cube machines, considered to be the most common machines for ice making, create a solid cube that melts slowly. For carbonated beverages, mixed drinks, ice retail, salad bars and ice dispensing, full dice ice machines and half-dice ice makers are suggested.
  2. Flakes: Thin, hard bits of ice are made by flake ice makers. Flakes cool foods and beverages easily while producing low production costs. An exclusive advantage of flakes is that they can be shaped into any form easily. For salad bars, seafood, meat, produce, blended cocktails, and for hospital use, flakes are best used.
  3. Nuggets: Nugget ice makers create a textured, pliable, chewable ice that gives beverages the optimal cooling effect. For a nugget ice machine, buying an agitator kit is important as the ice will melt and bind together and cause clogging. The suggested use of nugget ice is for blended drinks, carbonated beverages, drinks, salad bars, produce, and hospital use.
