Commercial ice makers improve the quality of ice by using moving water resulting in very hard, virtually pure, clear ice. In vertical evaporators the ice is softer, more so if there are actual individual cube cells. Commercial ice machines can make different sizes of ice like flakers, crushed, cube, octagon, and tube.
When the sheet of ice on the cold surface reaches the desired thickness, the sheet is slid down onto a grid of wires, where the sheet’s weight causes it to be broken into the desired shapes, after which it falls into a storage bin. Servall stock a range of ice machines which produce ice in a variety of capacities for busy bars, restaurants and hotels.
