UK: The new Scotsman SIS high volume ice storage and transport system from Hubbard is described as an effective solution for larger venues.
The system combines a storage bin, mounted on legs, and a shuttle cart, which sits below the bin and is used to move the ice to wherever it’s required.
The SIS system is designed to accommodate a wide choice of Scotsman modular icemakers, which will be sited on top of the bin. The first SIS unit to be launched is the SIS 300, which has a bin that can hold up to 137kg of ice.
The SIS 300 bin is constructed from stainless steel, with an easy to clean polyethylene interior. Ice from the machine drops into the bin, where it is held until required. The shuttle cart is filled through a sliding guillotine door and the system’s base has a built in drain for the bin and the cart.
Made of polypropylene, the shuttle cart can hold up to 73kg of ice. Its swivel wheels and ergonomic handlebar are designed to make it easy to manoeuvre, while rounded corners provide protection in transit.
The SIS 300 is compatible with Scotsman modular ice machines which make a variety of different cubes. They include the N0 622, which makes up to 292kg of nugget ice per day; and the MF 46, which produces flake ice and has a capacity of 330kg per day.
The SIS 300 is available from Hubbard distributors and has a list price of from £4,500 plus VAT, excluding the icemaker. The storage bin measures 884mm wide by 1025mm deep and 1343mm high (not including the icemaker).
