Developments in technology and manufacturing capability have led to the introduction of super energy efficient refrigeration and ice making technology. With multi-functionality, ice is used primarily to chill a beverage or glass, while in some cases hotels will use ice to intentionally add water as melting occurs, diluting the mix to create the optimum blend in cocktails and such. Hoshizaki’s latest innovations in ice now see the creation of dense cubes and slow melting ice, which successfully achieves its aim of chilling a beverage, without melting and diluting a drink.
The Emerald Class range of ice machines is ideal for the hotel industry, utilising the naturally occurring R290 refrigerant, while innovative technology monitors and manages the production process to ensure the optimum amount of ice is produced at any one time, helping to further reduce consumption of water and electricity. Hoshizaki’s offering of ice machines gives the opportunity for a range of hotels and restaurants to produce drinks and servings that suit a range of guests and diners, all whilst keeping energy costs low and sustainable.
