Our water is filtered and lab tested to give us pure, bottled-water quality water that makes crystal clear ice.
The filtered water is fed to three Vogt P34 tube-ice makers, going from a cool 54 degrees to frozen clear cubes in less than five minutes. These ice makers currently produce 200 tons of ice each day.
The ice then falls from the ice makers into our enclosed stainless steel auger system and is taken to a sealed room where it is briefly stored in a food grade ice bin. The bin system helps to prevent damage to the ice, reducing any crushing or chipping.
The ice travels from our storage bin through enclosed stainless-steel augers to our baggers. The ice is measured and filled into each bag by the bagger and heat sealed shut. Each bagger will produce a 10-pound bag of ice every 2 seconds!
The bag then drops onto a conveyor where it rides to a robotic palletizing system to be stacked on pallets.
Each pallet is then shrink wrapped and stored in our 10-degree freezer.
Our automated manufacturing process ensures our ice meets rigorous Packaged Ice Quality Control Standards (PIQCS) that are the gold standard in our industry.
