Scotsman Ice Duo – flake and cube ice, in one space-saving system

Hubbard Ice Systems launches new ice machine concept

CMYK baseMany nightclubs, hotels and event caterers use two types of ice – cubes for drinks and flake for cocktails and food display.  In the past this has meant two ice machines, two ice storage bins, two lots of services….  Now Hubbard Ice Systems has launched the Ice Duo, a combined system that links an ice cuber and an ice flaker, in a single, space-saving unit.

The Ice Duo comprises the MV306 dice ice maker, the MF36 flake ice maker, and the Follett 1025 ice storage bin. The ice makers are sited side-by-side on top of the bin, sharing water and waste services. Both machines dispense ice into the same bin, which has a divider to keep flakes and cubes separate. The divider can be adjusted so that if, for example, more cube than flake ice is required, the bin is divided appropriately.

The MV306 can produce 140kg of ice per day, the equivalent of 10,750 dice cubes. It can also be supplied to make the smaller-sized, half-dice cubes. The MF36 can produce up to 200kg of flake ice in 24 hours. The Follett 1025 storage bin can hold up to 467kg of ice.

Despite its production and storage capacities, the Ice Duo offers a compact footprint of just 1321mm (wide) by 801mm (deep). It is 1845mm high. List price for the complete package is £9,438.00.

“Nearly every venue has pressure on its space,” says Simon Aspin, commercial director of Hubbard Ice Systems. “The Ice Duo is not only neat and compact, it also makes it simple for staff, since there’s just the one unit to go to for both flake and cube ice.”
