Hoshizaki is taking viewers on a virtual journey through the inside of its FM ice machine.
The animation, available on the manufacturer’s website, visually demonstrates how nugget and flake ice is produced and showcases Hoshizaki’s technology and craftsmanship.
Simon Frost, director, Hoshizaki UK and Ireland, said: “The video truly encompasses the key technological, environmental and quality credentials of this highly-sought-after range which is relied on by so many UK operators.”
Able to produce flaked or nugget ice, FM ice machine series can be used by bars to create ice for cooling glasses and making popular cocktails such as Mojitos; while sports facilities use the ice for creating ice packs and treating injuries, whereas supermarkets use this ice for seafood counter displays.
As demonstrated in the video, the coordinated inner elements of Hoshizaki FM ice machines are designed to allow operators to produce consistent ice in an energy efficient way with CO2 refrigerant now available as a new option.
The video outlines the brand’s use of carbon graphite bushing, which unlike the standard ball bearings, uses water as lubricant and is said to operate with zero grease for longevity and easy maintenance.
Built in Hoshizaki UK’s Telford factory, the FM series is available in various sizes and capacities, from a small undercounter with an 80kg capacity, to huge production units such as Hoshizaki’s FM-1800, which can produce over 1.8tons of flaked ice, or 1.5tons of nugget ice per day.
