- *2. Ice grown in the interior walls of an ice making cylinder filled with cooled water is then shaved by a rotating auger with a spiral blade. The shaved ice is solidified inside a fixed blade, then broken again into cut ice and released into the bin. Continuous ice making eliminates the de-icing process, preventing heat and time loss. Performs at approximately 65% of the running cost of a closed cell-type machine.
