Scotsman has revolutionized the ice maker, to provide state-of-the art dimensional and operational features. Today with its new aesthetics you may proudly display your ice maker. At the same time, the reduced dimensions allow you to place it under the counter or wherever you prefer, with the utmost freedom even with water drain constraints. Daily production and storage capacity have been optimized in relation to overall dimensions, while innovative features create and allow the maintenance of the highest food safety standards. * 38kg of ice in 24 Hours Production * 19kg Storage Bin Capacity * Grade 304 Stainless Steel * Patented Anti-Scale System * Antibacterial Pouch Mounted in Storage Bin * Automatic Maintenance Reminder * Easy Front-Access Condenser Air Filter * Pumped Waste Discharge External Dimensions (mm): H 800 (legs + 120) x W 530 x D 600
• This acid is highly corrosive and poisonous.
• Extreme care must be taken at all times.
• Please ensure that gloves are worn.
• If contact with skin or eyes is made rinse with water
and seek medical attention.
• Please ensure that all ice harvested after cleaning with acid
is thrown away, until the ice is optically pure.
• White ice cubes must not be served.
1. Pour one cup of acid into the water reservoir.
2. Fill the reservoir to the brim with fresh water.
3. Run the machine on rinse cycle for 20 minutes.
4. Remove any scale / sludge from the water system.
5. Allow the machine to run two harvests with fresh water. Discard the ice.
6. If the ice on the third harvest is optically pure it may be served.
7. If the ice cubes are still white, continue with fresh water harvesting until clear.
8. It is recommended that the water system be cleaned at least twice per year.

starting an ice business
When you decide to start an ice business the ideal machine to use would be a 320 kg per 24 hours machine and a 320 kg bin. These machines are single phase 220 volt machines so a normal household 3 pin plug can run the machine with no problem. Using a smaller machine would be a 240 kg per 24 hours which is about R5000.00 rand cheaper, for that saving you are loosing about one third of the ice capacity, when you consider ice bags are packed in 4 kg packs and 240 kgs will amount to 60 bags of ice, a normal size 210 litre house hold freezer hold 20 bags of 4 kg ice, this means a 240 kg machine will fill 3 freezers full of ice per 24 hours, you will be able to refill 4 or 5 places you supply ice to every 24 hrs, this is not much and in a few weeks you will be looking to buy another machine and kicking yourself for not spending the extra and getting a machine with a 100 kgs more, looking ahead two 320 kg machines is not much more expensive than one 700 kg machine so when purchasing a second machine you will not be wasting, also the problem with one machine is when it stops you have no ice, two smaller machines will at least leave you with half capacity still being supplied.
What ice shape
The types of ice are square (cube or dice) and round (gourmet) that are available in south Africa, the gourmet cube is a bigger and much more preferred cube, however the machine is about twice the price of a dice cube machine, so to start i would suggest a dice cube machine, later when your client base has grown you can get a gourmet cube machine and selective clients can be supplied with gourmet cubes, if you start with a gourmet cube machine you will end up supplying people gourmet ice at a huge cost to fill their cooler boxes which is a waste
How to seal bags
Heat sealers are always the way everyone wants to start with, i suggest get a packet of small cable ties from the hardware shop and use them, they are cheap and will never open once closed, heat sealer have heater strip that need replacing, the melt the bag together and i found when bags are dropped in a freezer the melt line tends to open and the ice falls out, this ice the freezers and the freezer end up solid with broken bags
How to store ice
To store ice start with a 500 litre chest freezer, this freezer will hold 50 four kgs bags of ice, if need be another freezer can ater be purchased, if ever you install a freezer room then the freezers can be used in clients shops to hold ice.
How to transport ice
Transporting ice is done in a van that is insulated, it can be transported in an insulated box like an old chest freezer, the box does not need to be refrigerated unless the ice will be in the box for a period longer than 3 or 4 hours

An Italian design company has joined forces with Chivas to launch an ice press and mould that makes teardrop-shaped ice cubes, which it claims eradicates “clinking”.
The mould and press were launched as a collaboration between Chivas Regal 18 and Pininfarina, the Italian design company responsible for some of the world’s sleekest cars and often seen as a partner with Ferrari.
Unveiled at London’s Connaught bar, the machine makes ice cubes shaped like tears that are the height of a whisky glass. It is claimed that the shape of the ice cubes stops the clinking noise created by conventional cubes as they move around the glass. Unlike normal ice cubes, a single teardrop ice cube is enough to cover most of the bottom of the glass.
As they also have a reduced surface area, they take longer to melt meaning the taste of the whisky is largely unaffected, so perhaps the debate over whether to add ice or not is over.
With that said you might just want to stick with the clinking noise given the machine costs £275, or enjoy them at some of the world’s top bars.
Richard Black, global brand ambassador for Chivas Regal, described it as an innovation that was “as practical as it is enjoyable” that would deliver “unique experiences to the world’s top on-trade venues.”
The ice press has been given to five London bars, Artesian, Nightjar, American Bar, Connaught Bar and Happiness Forgets.
The recommended service interval for Scotsman ice machines is a six month period. The ice machine pc board is thus configured to flash the red light six months after the last service has been carried out or six months after purchase. The machine will continue to work once the red light is enabled; however this is a reminder that a service is due.
Please note that the guarantee of the machine could be affected if the reminder light is ignored.
