Ice on tap for hotel guests

13th of August 2019

Scotsman’s DXG35 self-serve ice machine.

The Scotsman DXG35 was developed specifically for self-serve ice, for guests in hotels.  The latest version combines reliable performance with quiet operation – so it can be sited in hotel corridors alongside guest bedrooms.

“The demand for ice shows no sign of decreasing,” says David Rees, marketing manager of Hubbard Systems, which distributes Scotsman systems in the UK.  “As guests’ expectations rise, more hotels are feeling the need to offer self-serve ice machines.”

That rise in expectations is also why the DXG35 produces gourmet supercube ice.  These crystal clear, hard and pure cubes look great, last a long time and chill very effectively, so there’s no fear of melted ice spoiling the drink.

The DXG35 is a space-saving, slimline unit, with a footprint just 380mm wide by 515mm deep, so it can fit into narrow openings and corners.  The dispensing system is at waist height, making it comfortable and safe for guests to use.  Operation is simple: place a container in the dispense cavity, push the button and the ice portion is dropped in.  The cavity is large enough to accommodate an ice bucket.

The ice maker can produce up to 36kg of ice per day, and its 11kg integral storage bin ensures there’s always enough to meet demand.

The unit’s exterior is stainless steel, making it smart, resistant to tarnishing and easy to keep clean.  It’s also simple to look after, with a front-access condenser air filter that is easily removable for washing.  The DXG35 runs so quietly thanks to the integral insulation design and simple and reliable electro mechanical controls.
