Hoshizaki FM-480AKE-HC-SB/HCN-SB Ice Flakers

This modular cube ice maker uses Natural Refrigerant R290, which is environmentally friendly and energy efficient. It produces flake ice, which is often used for produce display of fish, fresh food and bottled beverages. In the medical field, flake ice is also used for organ transportation. Utilizing the most efficient ice making process due to the unique auger system, the water consumption is equal to the ice production. The main characteristic of Hoshizaki’s flake ice is that ‘freeze-burn’ is prevented when displaying fresh fish or produce. This model has a stainless steel bottom and is configured with our storage bins.

Main features:

  • Efficient ice making process due to Hoshizaki’s unique FM auger system.
  • Utilises all water brought into the machine; therefore water consumption is equal to ice production.
  • Auger is made of double hardened stainless steel. Combined with carbon bearings, they work optimally in a tough and wet environment.
  • Micro computer controlled, controlling the ice making process to perform at its best under varying circumstances, without having to make physical adjustments.
  • An easily cleanable air filter allows end users to carry out a routine cleaning schedule, extending product life expectancy and reducing the frequency and costs of maintenance call-outs.
Quality stainless steel auger and evaporator increase the life expectancy of these components and the whole ice maker, as well as reducing costly maintenance visits.
