Hubbard has launched the Scotsman SIS ice storage and transport system, combining a storage bin, mounted on legs, and a shuttle cart, which sits below the bin and is used to move the ice to wherever it’s required.
The SIS system is designed to accommodate a wide choice of Scotsman modular icemakers, which will be sited on top of the bin. The first SIS unit to be launched is the SIS 300, which has a bin that can hold up to 137kg of ice.
The SIS 300 bin is constructed from stainless steel, with what is designed to be a hygienic, easy to clean polyethylene interior. Ice from the machine drops into the bin, where it is held until required.
The bin measures 884mm wide by 1,025mm deep and 1,343mm high (not including the icemaker).
The shuttle cart is filled through a sliding guillotine door, which should be easy to open and close. The system’s base has a built in drain for the bin and the cart.
The SIS shuttle cart is made of polypropylene and can hold up to 73kg of ice. Its swivel wheels and ergonomic handlebar should make it easy to manoeuvre, while rounded corners should provide protection in transit.
The SIS 300 is compatible with Scotsman modular ice machines which make a variety of different cubes. They include the N0 622, which makes up to 292kg of nugget ice per day; and the MF 46, which produces flake ice and has a capacity of 330kg per day.
