Impurities are discharged as waste at the end of a (harvest) cycle, and fresh water fills the reservoir to begin the process again. This produces a hard, powderless hollow tube ice that is transparent, sanitary and environmentally friendly. The clear texture of tube ice means it is often referred to as “cocktail” or “party ice”.
Water is circulated from a reservoir over the inner surface of the stainless steel tube. Ice is formed by a refrigerant being applied to the outside of the tube. When your desired thickness is achieved, a hot gas will be introduced, which releases the ice. This drops into a rotating blade, which cuts your ice and discharges into a storage container for use.
