Ice Machines, What’s the difference?


Here at corr chilled we sell over 30 different ice machines. Most of which do different things, but what is the difference between the machines and how do you know which is best for your business?


Ice Machines

An ice machine quite simply makes ice. From small machines which produce 10kg of ice every 24 hours to larger industrial sized machines which can produce up to 320kg per 24 hours.

Different ice machines also have different ways of usage. Smaller countertop machines can be filled with water which will then need refilling frequently whereas larger standalone machines will need plumbing in but will then need no interference as it takes water from the mains to make the ice.

It is important to know which machine to use. A pub may only need a counter top machine whereas a busy cinema, theatre or bar may need a larger machine that is plumbed in.
