The Hoshizaki FM-480AKE-HCN-SB is a modular nugget ice maker producing up to 380 kg of high-quality nugget ice per 24 hours.
Hoshizaki ice makers generate quality granular ice in two moisture variants, such as Nugget ice. In Cocktails, the dry and hard ice nuggets are the ideal cooling agent, as they deliver just the right amount of dilution, especially for strong spirited drinks like Mojitos and Tiki Cocktails.
For food display, the light texture of granular ice has a quick cooling effect, creating an environment of uniform temperatures, without causing unpleasant freezer burn. This is why Hoshizaki Nugget ice is highly popular and considered the ideal material to prepare and layer attractive food displays. The ice maker’s extruding head performs a high compression to yield harder and drier ice nuggets.
The FM-480AKE-HCN-SB uses refrigerant R290. This natural refrigerant is not only climate-friendly but also boosts the machine when it comes to performance and production capacity.
The exterior is made of stainless steel. The closed water circuit provides maximum protection against any type of contamination during the entire ice production process. All Hoshizaki machines are easy to use, clean, and maintain.
The FM series has a worktime-based replacement system, which can be monitored with an intuitive control display for preventive maintenance. Hoshizaki was the first to introduce an automated water circuit rinse
cycle, to avoid harmful mineral residues from clogging the hydraulic
system and maintaining top sanitary conditions.
Like all Hoshizaki Ice makers, the FM-480AKE-HCN-SB is designed to last and comes with smart design extras. The Nugget ice maker uses carbon graphite bushings instead of conventional ball bearings allows the machine to work entirely without grease. Here, the absence of moving parts prevents wear and tear, while the water-lubricated bearings protect the system from unpleasant calcification and bacterial contamination.
Need to amp up your production capacity? The variable setup with modular bins and bases allows the user to mix and match a number of devices, depending on individual requirements and conditions. The dimensions of the FM-480AKE-HCN-SB are 560 x 700 x 780 mm.
The smart plug-and-play design guarantees an extremely easy and quick set-up.
