Hoshizaki unveils green breakthrough in crescent ice production


Hoshizaki has introduced the industry’s first hydrocarbon crescent ice maker.

The KMD-210AB-HC means that environmentally-conscious operators can now source a greener ice machine that produces crescent-shaped ice.

Simon Frost, director of Hoshizaki UK and Ireland, said: “With zero ozone depleting potential (ODP), negligible global warming potential (GWP), and outstanding efficiency, the brand-new KMD-210AB-HC well and truly excels when it comes to sustainability.

“However, it’s not just the use of hydrocarbon refrigerant that makes this crescent ice maker so impressive, but also the unit’s CycleSaver design.

“This unique design allows for a high quantity of ice to be produced in approximately half as many cycles as similar competitor models, thus allowing operators to make significant energy savings – benefits which will particularly appeal to large, fast selling establishments such as nightclubs, stadiums, entertainment venues and hotels.”

Crystal-clear crescent ice makes for an aesthetic addition to any drink and its curved shape allows for a splash-free serving.

The ice structure is particularly ideal for operators that wish to slot bottles into filled champagne buckets and can be blended more easily than a standard square cube.

Meanwhile, the only element of manual cleaning that needs to be done with the KMD-210AB-HC is the cleaning of the machines air filters. The rest is taken care of by the unit’s double flushing system with built-in self-cleaning.

The price of the KMD-210AB-HC starts from £4720 plus VAT.
