Industrial ice consumers use the same range of Vogt machines as plants producing ice for everyday consumers, with one addition: cracked ice. Where the industrial consumers are different is in their purposes for using all of these ice types. What does that look like?
Tube and plate ice for industrial locations are nearly always used to cool a key product for the facility like meats, vegetables, process water, or even concrete. Sometimes, the ice is taken from the machine and broken into smaller pieces before use.
Cracked ice is commonly seen in fish and shrimp boats where its softer nature is less prone to damaging the fish in handling. This ice is produced quickly in the machine, helping the end users to have a steady stream of ice.
