Water cooled, flake ice
- Suitable storage bunkers: B-301SA (144kg), B-501SA (217 kg), B-801SA (348 kg)
The Hoshizaki FM machines make flake or nugget ice for a variety of purposes. This makes them very popular with catering companies, cocktail bars and a number of large European supermarket chains, as well as in the medical world and healthcare. The ice is compressed during production, making it less likely to melt. With the ice produced by Hoshizaki ice machines, the 'freeze burn' phenomenon does not occur when presenting fresh fish or other products.
Flake ice: consists of 70% ice and 30% water. This is mainly used for cooling purposes. In the medical sector, for example, flake ice is used to cool blood and organs; in the fishing industry it is used for cooling, transporting and storing fish.
Hoshizaki ice cream machines in this series can be converted relatively cheaply for flake or nugget ice cream, making them significantly more flexible than other machines on the market.
Carbon worm bearings are used in this series, a very robust alternative to roller bearings. This increases the lifespan of your machine and you save on maintenance costs. The worm and evaporator are made of high-quality stainless steel, which also increases the life of these parts, so that your machine lasts longer and requires less maintenance.
Environmentally friendly ice cream makers:
Hydrocarbons (KW) are naturally occurring compounds that have been found to be the most climate-friendly and cost effective coolants for heating, cooling and freezing. According to Hoshizaki, hydrocarbons will play an important role in the future of refrigeration technology and the company is taking the lead in the production of environmentally friendly ice cream makers. This means that with the use of hydrocarbon ice machines, energy consumption decreases by up to 20% per unit, reducing CO2 emissions from energy suppliers while saving operating costs. In addition, the units in the FM series use CO2 foam insulation without HFC for further savings on operating costs. This keeps the temperature of the unit constant, which in turn contributes to reducing direct greenhouse gas emissions.
For some combinations of ice cream maker and storage bunkers, a top kit may be required, which ensures proper assembly of the ice cream maker and storage bunker. The top kit that is required is indicated in the options below (price of the storage bunkers includes the necessary top kits)
