Flaker Ice Machines

Flaker Ice Machines produce flake ice that is great for everything from chilling food displays to making refreshingly cold beverages. It is also a staple in health care facilities because it won't clump or bruise the way ice may. Flake ice cools faster than other types because of its surface area and size. Flaker Ice Machines can be air-cooled or water cooled and paired with an ice bin of your choice to make the best unit to serve your needs.

Why choose a flaker ice machine over an ice machine that produces cubes?

The selection of ice type is dependent upon your specific needs. Flake ice is generally more suited for keeping items chilled, such as meat, bottled drinks, or other chilled foods. Environments that fits this application include buffets, grocery stores, cafeterias, fish markets, etc. With a 73% ice to water ratio, this ice form has an increased cooling speed and is more packable, making it ideal for healthcare applications.

Do flaker ice machines require their own type of ice bins?

No. Flake ice machines accept the same bins as machines that produce nugget and cube ice.
