A large catering butcher was looking for a solution for icing their product prior to adding it to the bowl chopper.
Previously they used to scoop ice from a large bunker into an ice cart, then they would have to weigh the ice from the cart into the product cart, which meant they were increasing labour by double handling the ice, plus risking contamination of the ice by the operator.
The ice had always given them a very easy to handle and good quality product, so when production demands increased and they needed a bigger ice machine it seemed like the ideal time to improve the system at the same time.
They wanted a system that would dose the ice straight into the product carts with no intermediate stages, thus reducing the manual handling of the ice while simultaneously reducing any risks of product contamination.
Ziegra offered the UBE10.000-2R-AS500 system shown at left.
