Howe Ice Flaker Applications





Flake Ice has many applications in food cooling.





Applications

Supermarket

Howe Rapid Freeze ice flakers have been used by supermarkets worldwide for food cooling applications such as seafood displays, and produce counters where cooled products equals fresh products.

QUALITY ICE
Supermarkets need flake ice to attractively display products in the meat, produce, seafood and delicatessen departments. Many of the products in these highly visible areas of the store provide stores with their highest profit margins. In addition, attractive food displays using quality ice offer stores an important opportunity to distinguish themselves from competitors.

Howe Flake Ice...
  • Sparkles more than other ice, making products appear fresher; and is easy to work with, allowing creative displays
  • Cushions products against damage and reduces product weight loss due to dehydration more effectively than other forms of refrigeration
  • Cools products more quickly than other forms of ice because it reaches a temperature of 22°F
  • Provides greater surface contact area (17,000 square ft. per ton) for products, cooling the products to a uniform temperature
  • Extends the shelf life of products
LOW COST
Because supermarkets operate on very low profit margins, price is always an important factor in equipment purchase decisions.

Howe ice flakers...
  • Feature superior industrial design and materials, yet are competitively priced with less durable commercial ice machines
  • Are 50 to 70% less expensive to maintain than other ice machines.
  • Can be purchased without compressors, allowing supermarkets to reduce costs even further by utilizing their existing refrigeration systems
RELIABLE MACHINES
Because supermarkets need a constant supply of uniform ice, their ice-making equipment must be reliable and easy to maintain.

Howe ice flakers ...
