We are pleased to announce that our IM-240ANE HYDROCARBON Icemaker has won the 'Catering Equipment of the Year 2014' in the category 'Beverage Equipment and Ice Machines'. 

 Catering Insight is one of the leading trade publications in the UK. The winners have been selected based on three criteria: innovation, functionality and commercial appeal. Others in the race for the win were the Scotsman Ice Tower 56, the Malibu Ice Cream Server, the Schaerer Coffee Art Plus Supersteam and the WMF 1500S.

 The IM240ANE-HC is our first Ice cube machine to use hydrocarbon as a refrigerant. This machine can produce up to 235kg per 24 hours and still use only 50 percent of the legal allowance of Hydrocarbon. The Hydrocarbon Ice Machine is environmentally friendly and energy efficient. 

Believing that hydrocarbons will play a major part within the future of refrigeration technology, Hoshizaki has committed to take a leading role in the design and manufacture of environmentally positive ice makers and refrigerators. Hoshizaki expert engineers are continuously striving to diversify and expand the hydrocarbon range to suit the needs of the global sectors using commercial cooling and freezing systems.
