Hubbard Systems has brought the Scotsman Crushman 360 modular unit to the UK market.
Designed to be operable with any Dice or Supercube ice machine in the range, it can turn ice cubes into crushed ice granules, in seconds.
In recent years there has been an increase in the applications of different kinds of ice in the hospitality industry. It can be difficult for locations with limited space to justify having two ice machines, but Hubbard feels the addition of a Crushman is a simple way to add flexibility and expand their offering by utilising a variety of ice types.
The Crushman is a compact unit, 245mm wide and 490mm tall, with a bin capacity of 48kg. Constructed entirely from stainless steel, it is designed to work in conjunction with ice machines in the Scotsman range and can convert 2kg Supercubes into granules in 20 seconds. At maximum production it can crush 144kg of ice in a 24 hour period.
The grinding head is adjustable to three levels of granulation; fine, medium and coarse. This should makes it suitable for a range of uses including cocktails and ice based drinks, and storing and presenting fresh food and ingredients.
It is powered by a standard 13A power socket, which should make installation simple in a variety of locations. Controlled via microswitches on the lid and door, it is designed to be easy to operate making training and use simple, regardless of staff experience.
