Ice Machines for Medical

Science & Medical

Fast production, fast cooling…

Flaked ice is the obvious choice for a huge range of medical and scientific applications.

Flaked IceCompared to larger, more uniform styles of ice, flake ice offers a large contact area providing rapid cooling for laboratory work and medical applications. The soft texture makes it perfect for rehabilitation and physical therapy treatments such as ice baths and cooling packs as the ices smooth texture will not damage sensitive skin or delicate areas.

Standard flake ice has a residual water content of approximately 25% giving it a slightly ‘stickier’ more adhesive quality, ideal for ice baths where fast heat transfer is required. The larger Scotsman modular flaked ice machines produce a ‘SuperFlake’ ice which is more compressed than regular flaked ice which has a lower residual water content of approximately 15%. The dryer texture of ‘SuperFlake’ makes it better for ice packs as the initial wetness is less.

Scotsman have a wide range of flaked ice machines from self-contained under counter units in the AF/EF-Series through to large modular machines capable of manufacturing well over 2000kg of flaked ice every 24 hours.

Cubelet IceIn a laboratory environment, a Cubelet Ice Dispenser may be a more suitable option. Cubelet ice is made from compressing flaked ice into irregular nuggets, perfect for rapidly cooling liquids and can be broken up easily for cold packs and the like. The Scotsman TC180 dispenser can be operated ‘hands free’ making it ideal for medical and scientific situations where hygiene is paramount.

NO scoops, NO handling, NO cross-contamination!

Scotsman EcoX

The Scotsman EcoX Range of ice making equipment operate on either R290 (Propane) or R744 (Carbon Dioxide) natural refrigerants (model dependant) which have a Global Warming Potential (GWP) value of 3 or less making the Scotsman EcoX ice makers fully complaint with both current and forthcoming F-Gas regulations.
