Scotsman Industries’ UK supplier, Hubbard Systems, has rolled out the HD ice dispenser to further increase ice servings’ hygiene level.
The series is designed to eliminate the potentially hazardous procedure of getting ice from the machine’s storage container to the ice bucket for service.
Originally designed for hotel and motel guests to self-serve their own ice into buckets, these machines can be used behind the bar use in hotels, restaurants and pubs or anywhere where ice is supplied for drinks.
The Scotsman HD modular dispensers are designed to fit Scotsman supercube or dice ice machines such as the MXG or NW. They have an electronic rotor located in the bin which breaks up and directs the ice through the dispensing chute into a storage bucket for serving to the customer.
A ‘push’ chute activates the ice dispensing mechanism, which is designed to eliminate the need for the operator to delve into the ice bin.
With a stainless steel cabinet, the dispenser has a removable top panel should allow easy access for routine cleaning. Polyurethane foam insulation should preserve the ice supply for long periods.
There are two models in the series: the HD 22 with a bin capacity of up to 59kg and the HD30 with a bin capacity of up to 81kg. Both operate from a 13A power socket and are supplied with a 5metre power cord.
