Hubbard Systems has launched a revised version of the Scotsman DXN 207 EcoX cubelet ice dispenser, designed to provide a reliable and attractive source of ice suitable for both front of house, including self-service, and back of house operation, with hygienic Magic Eye dispenser control and an efficient, green refrigerant.
Cubelet ice is a compressed form of flake ice. The ice making process removes residual water, reducing it to as little as 10% of its original volume. The end result is a dry and long lasting but chewable form of ice that is suitable for a wide range of purposes, from drinks to medical uses. The DXN range is a powerful but compact method of supplying large quantities of ice in a controlled, hygienic manner.
The DXN 207 EcoX is capable of making up to 100kg of ice a day, and has an internal storage capacity of 10kg. This works out to 200 servings of ice immediately available, at 50g per serving. This allows it to easily keep pace with demand of even the busiest locations.
A footprint of just 427mm wide by 553mm deep makes it suitable for mounting on counters but it can also be free standing or even wall mounted. It is made of hard wearing stainless steel with an attractive and minimalist facia that easily fits in with front of house designs, and can be programmed via a large, black touchpad screen featuring simple to understand and highly visible blue icons.
Its fully enclosed ice production system guarantees ice remains uncontaminated, and the option of controlling dispensing with Hubbard’s touch free “magic eye” sensor can reduce handling to zero, helping to guarantee the integrity of the ice from creation to consumption. This makes it suitable for use as a source of ice not just for self-service but also in back of bar and kitchens looking to improve hygienic standards in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Push button operation is also available as an option. The DXN 207 EcoX can be configured to dispense just ice or ice and chilled water, adding to its versatility.
The new version of the DXN includes improvements on energy consumption on the previous model, and is now part of Hubbard’s EcoX range of ice machines. EcoX machines use only natural refrigerants and are fully compliant with current and forthcoming F-gas regulations, giving them an Ozone Depletion Potential of zero and a Global Warming Potential of three or less.
