Construction and landscaping crews often take 5-gallon coolers with the on jobs to keep their team fresh and hydrated.
Finally, trucking fleets and commercial or private airlines often fly with bags of ice to refill passengers’ drinks.
Let’s look at all the ways ice bagging machines can benefit your industry.
Commercial Bagged Ice Machines are Convenient
Ice bagging systems allow employees to fill bags of ice and deliver them to other locations. They operate like a large ice dispenser, dropping ice at the press of a button or pedal.
Commercial ice bagging machines are a very convenient way to transport ice because it’s easy to haul bags throughout a large facility and deliver them to multiple vendors. If you have a cart to transport the ice, the bags protect the ice on the way the vendor, so you can be sure the ice stays safe and sanitary.
Even the smallest commercial ice machines are not portable. Distribution, construction, and airline industries in Kansas and Missouri often take bags or coolers of ice with them on long trips or jobs to keep employees and passengers cool and hydrated. Commercial bagged ice machines allows crews to fill bags or coolers with ice quickly and transport them safely.
Finally, commercial bagged ice machines fill bags of ice quickly. Many of our units can fill up to eight 8-lb bags of ice a minute, far faster than a person can fill dropping scoop-after-scoop of ice in a bag.
Commercial Bagged Ice Machine Save Space
Many complexes in Kansas and Missouri need a safe and simple way to transport ice from a single source to many other small businesses that likely don’t have room for a large ice machine. Bagged ice machines allow the complex to install a large ice machine, which takes up a lot of space, in an area that has plenty of room to support it.
Industrial ice making equipment is typically installed in access areas throughout the facility where only employees have access. For many construction crews and distribution businesses, the commercial bagged ice machine stays at the company’s headquarters. Before crews or drivers leave for a job, they can stock up on ice in 5-gallon coolers which keep the ice fresh and solid for hours. Employees stay refreshed on jobs and can come back to headquarters to fill up on ice for the next job.
Ice Transport Systems
Ice transport systems, like our Follett SG700S DEV Series Ice Storage Bin, allows users to quickly fill carts full of ice quickly. These systems consist of an ice machine and bin. The chute underneath the bin allows user to park an ice cart directly below the chute. By operating the models quick ice release system, users can dispenser ice directly into a wheeled cart for fast and easy transportation from station to station.
