Hoshizaki launches the Emerald Class: Hydrocarbon technology with high durability.
Hoshizaki is the global market leader in commercial refrigerators and freezers with its ice cube machines. They are proud to talk about the Emerald Class, the new range of energy-efficient, environmentally-friendly ice machines. Hoshizaki takes the lead in developing products that save businesses and individuals costs and protect the environment. The Emerald Class symbolizes their dedication to this.
- Consists of ice cubes, chip and nugget ice machines.
- Uses natural coolant R290.
- Improved energy performance that helps with energy and cost savings.
- HACCP certified.
Why natural coolants?
Why hydrocarbon R290?
Hydrocarbons (HCs) are naturally occurring substances that are one of the most environmentally friendly and economical coolants for heating, cooling and freezing.
- Small amount required makes smaller heat exchangers and smaller pipes possible.
- Very low global warming potential (<5).
- Excellent energy efficiency.
- Non-toxic and safe if properly handled.
Ice machines with hydrocarbon (R290) therefore not only contribute to sustainability but also reduce energy costs!
The Hoshizaki FM machines make flake or nugget ice for a large number of purposes. As a result, they are very popular with hospitality companies, cocktail bars and a number of large European supermarket chains, but also in the medical world and healthcare. The ice is compressed during production, so that it melts less quickly. With the ice produced by Hoshizaki ice machines, the "freeze fire" phenomenon does not occur when presenting fresh fish or other products.
Flake ice: consists of 70% ice and 30% water. This is used in particular for cooling purposes. For example, in the medical sector, flake ice is used to cool blood and organs; in the fish industry it is used for cooling, transporting and storing fish.
Hoshizaki ice machines in this series can be converted into flake or nugget ice in a relatively cheap way, making them considerably more flexible than other machines on the market.
Carbon worm bearings are used in this series, a very robust alternative to roller bearings. This increases the life of your machine and you save on maintenance costs. The worm and the evaporator are made of high-quality stainless steel and that also increases the service life of these parts, so that your machine lasts longer and requires less maintenance.
Environmentally friendly ice makers:
Hydrocarbons (KW) are naturally occurring compounds that have proven to be the most climate-friendly and cost-effective cooling agents for heating, cooling and freezing. According to Hoshizaki, hydrocarbons will play an important role in the future of refrigeration technology and the company is taking the lead in the production of environmentally friendly ice machines. This means that the energy consumption with the application of ice machines with hydrocarbon decreases by as much as 20% per unit, so that CO2 emissions from energy suppliers are lower and you save on operating costs. In addition, the units in the FM series use CO2 foam insulation without HFC for further savings in operating costs. This keeps the temperature of the unit constant and that also contributes to a reduction in direct greenhouse gas emissions.
For some combinations of ice machine and storage bunkers, a top kit may be required, this ensures the correct assembly of the ice machine and the storage bunker. The top kit that is required is indicated in the options below (price of the storage bunkers include the required top kits)
