Hoshizaki FM machines produce Flake for a variety of cooling purposes, making them very popular with North Carolinas leading supermarket chains, catering companies, cocktail bars and in the medical and health care sectors. The ice is compressed during production to provide long lasting ice. The nature of the ice produced by Hoshizaki ice makers means that ‘freeze burn’ is no longer an issue when displaying fresh fish or produce.
Flake ice: Consists of 70% ice and 30 % of water. It is used primarily for cooling purposes. For instance, in the medical sector it is used for cooling down blood and organs or, in the fish industry, to cool, transport and hold fish.
