Ice Types And Applications

Icematic Commercial ice machines, Gourmet ice, Bright cube, Large Dice, Half Large Dice, Dice ice, Nugget ice

There are many different forms of ice available, from solid cubes, either rounded or rectangle, to flake and nugget ice and each of these different types of ice is meant to meet and fulfill a specific requirement.

Each type of ice is produced by inherently different ice making machines and each of these types of machines differ in their daily production output.

"Ice enhances the quality of drinks and helps increase the value of each transaction"

We have put together a quick guide that demonstrates the different forms of ice available, what types of establishments they are best suited for and which series of ice machine provides that specific ice type.
