Nugget ice machine cashes in on Italian looks

07 December 2011

Hubbard Ice Systems, UK distributors of Scotsman ice making, will be showcasing the Scotsman AFC134 Nugget Ice Machine that is designed to complement its Six Series ice cubers at Hotelympia 2012

Like all machines in the Scotsman range, functionality is the prime purpose behind the AFC134’s concept with a focus on delivering ice at the point of use, nearest to the operator. Display preparation can be carried out at the start of each day without the need for further replenishment, delivering a meaningful labour cost saving.

The AFC134 features all of Scotsman’s traditional, hygiene, labour and energy-saving characteristics, including :
• Ice scoop holder safely positioned in ice-storage bin
• Resistant stainless steel exterior

The all-new AFC134 is the first self-contained Scotsman Nugget Ice maker designed to be seen on-show. Traditionally, nugget ice machines are functional workhorses that are expected to be sited, back-of-house, the stylish and highly efficient AFC134 brings a completely new approach to front-of-house nugget ice making.

Like its sisters, the Scotsman Six Series of gourmet ice cube makers, the AFC134 features sleek Italian styling, with no sharp edges, ergonomic quiet close ice bin door and low noise compressor and auger making it perfect for undercounter positioning at the point of use.

Nugget Ice is one of the hardest and driest types of ice. Compressed superflake ice is extruded using an enhanced evaporator auger and strengthened gearbox, to produce regular ‘nugget’ shaped ice pellets from between one and five grams in weight or an irregular, smaller, one gram ‘cubelet’.

Both examples contain 90% of pure ice with as little as 10% of residual water ensuring a long display-life with consequent energy and cost savings. Aimed at smaller sized fresh food displays within restaurants and cafés, the new self-contained AFC134 fits under standard counters.

Because the ice is so hard and dense with an exceptionally low melt rate the AFC134 can be cleaned at the end of the working day and replenished overnight, when energy costs are at their lowest, producing fresh ice for use from the first thing in the morning.
