Hubbard Ice Systems has launched a new series of ice makers that it claims are the smartest yet when it comes to sustainability.
The Scotsman Prodigy-MV machines are self-monitoring modular ice makers that feature front-located ‘AutoAlert’ indicator lights, which the company says makes upkeep “practically foolproof”.
The lights constantly communicate information about the machine’s operating status using easy-to-understand universal symbols and signal when it is time to perform routine maintenance or to call for service before it is an emergency.
The Prodigy-MV machines produce dice ice cubes in a choice of two sizes and are available in water-cooled, air cooled or remote condenser versions.
Hubbard offers a choice of models including the P-MV 456, which is capable of producing up to 220kgs of ice per day, the equivalent of 22,000 cubes.
The Prodigy range features a patented WaterSense control which reduces scale build-up and keeps the machine cleaner for longer. It works by detecting and purging particulate-laden water with every freeze cycle, maintaining the machine’s reliability and efficiency.
Scotsman has also worked on a new fan blade design and quiet compressor to reduce the noise of ice making.
