Our Product

Block Ice

This versatile product is used for purposes that include preventing food spoilage in outdoor locations and creating bases for decorative food service arrangements. Block ice is also used by ice sculptors as raw material. You can order crystal-clear blocks.

50kg Block Ice comes in large pieces that last for much longer amounts of time than ice cubes or other small pieces of ice. This versatile product is used for purposes that include preventing food spoilage in outdoor locations and creating bases for decorative food service arrangements. Block ice is also used by ice sculptors as raw material. You can order crystal-clear blocks, as well as blocks with your preferred level of opacity.

Crushed Ice

Ice cubes are sometimes crushed or sheared into irregularly shaped flakes to provide an aesthetic effect to some cocktails. Crushed ice is also used when faster cooling is desired since the rate of cooling is governed by the number and average radius of the ice particles.

Ice is often also crushed to form ‘slushies’, which can be both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Crushed ice melts more quickly than solid ice: it has a greater surface area, so heat transfer is faster compared to solid ice.

Tube Ice

An ice cube is a small piece of ice, which is typically rectangular as viewed from above and trapezoidal as viewed from the side. Ice cubes are products of mechanical refrigeration and are usually produced to cool beverages.

They may be produced at home in a freezer with an ice tray or in an automated ice-making accessory. They may also be produced industrially and sold commercially.

Flake Ice

Flake ice has the advantage over block ice of being relatively easy to use since it does not need crushing before use. Because it is slightly sub-cooled during manufacture and can be packed well around fish, it may be more efficient in cooling fish than crushed block ice. However, because it has a higher surface area and holds a lot of air, it takes up more room in storage and melts faster than uncrushed block ice.

Flake ice is a loose definition of a group of ice types with irregular particle sizes. These types can be roughly grouped into two main types: scale ice and granular ice. This can cause confusion as different manufacturers, industries, or even geographical areas will say flake ice and mean different things.
