Hubbard Systems has introduced the Scotsman MC46-Split ice maker to the UK market.
The unit is said to offer big ice production in a small footprint, by taking the compressor and condenser away. The compact size makes it suitable for places where space is at a premium.
Separating the refrigeration system keeps noise and waste heat away from the kitchen or bar area. Its modular design means additional units can be linked together if greater production capacity is required.
The MC46-Split makes the Scotsman Supercube in small, medium, large or extra-large. The cube is made by spraying water into an inverted mould; this causes any sediment or impurities in the water to fall back down, making the cube pure, clear and hard.
There are different size options for the remote refrigeration condensing units, dependent on how many MC46-Split freezing units are in operation. One size of remote condensing units is capable of running twelve machines simultaneously. Smaller remote condensing units are available if only one MC46-Split is required. One unit can produce 300kg, or 15,000 20g medium Supercubes, every 24 hours.
With a stainless steel exterior and an ABS plastic top cover, the MC46-Split uses AgION antimicrobial treatment in the interior plastic moulding for increased hygiene. The refrigerant is CFC-free R-404A and the unit is compatible with most popular ice storage bins. Excluding the remote system and storage bin, the list price is £5,740.
