Ice dispensers are a standard item for hotels, which offer hundreds of guests every day the option of self-serve, commercial-grade ice cubes. These types of dispensers are also found in quick-service restaurants and hospitals or other health care facilities. Manitowoc ice dispensers meet the stringent sanitary requirements of these facilities while touting trouble-free maintenance and their signature warranty. Ice dispensers are ideal for applications in which guests or employees need to quickly fill a single glass or bucket with ice. Manitowoc offers combined dispensers and ice makers, making it simple to make ice, hold it until it is needed, and then release it with the push of a button. In fact, Manitowoc has made this process even easier with its patented “Push For Ice” dispensing activator and special paddlewheel technology. The floor models even feature built-in agitators to ensure that ice does not clump and obstruct the ice chute.
Manitowoc ice dispensers offer daily production rates of upwards of 980 pounds of ice, and can store up to 180 pounds at a time, depending on the model. These high volume machines are available in countertop or floor-standing models. Install a Manitowoc ice dispenser in hotels, resorts, hospitals and other facilities with a constant need for ice, but where it is not reasonable to install a traditional cube or nugget ice machine and bin.
