Modular ice maker divides to multiply effectiveness

Scotsman MC46-Split is smaller, quieter and more flexible

The Scotsman MC46-Split from Hubbard Systems offers big ice production in a small footprint, by taking the compressor & condenser away from the ice-making unit. The compact size makes it ideal for places where space is at a premium. Meanwhile, separating the refrigeration system keeps noise and waste heat away from the kitchen or bar area. Its modular design means additional units can easily be linked together if greater production capacity is required.

The MC46-Split makes the Scotsman Supercube in either small, medium, large or extra-large. The Supercube has long been the market’s most popular ice cube, due to its purity and slowness to melt making it ideal for drinks. The cube is made by spraying water into an inverted mould, this causes any sediment or impurities in the water to fall back down, making the cube pure, clear and hard.

There are different options in size for the remote refrigeration condensing units, dependent on how many MC46-Split freezing units are in operation. One size of remote condensing units is capable of running twelve MC46-Splits simultaneously. Smaller remote condensing units are available if only one MC46-Split is required. A single MC46-Split can produce 300kg, or 15,000 20g medium Supercubes, every 24 hours.

With a tough stainless steel exterior and an ABS plastic top cover, the MC46-Split uses AgION antimicrobial treatment in the interior plastic moulding for increased hygiene. The refrigerant is CFC-free R-404A and the unit is compatible with most popular ice storage bins. All Scotsman products are backed by a two year manufacturer’s warranty. Excluding the remote system and storage bin, the list price for the MC46-Split is £5740.
