These ice dispensers are designed to be used with small, cube or tube-type ice machines. Icemakers are typically mounted to the top of these units and discharge directly into the dispenser. The integrated agitator maintains free flowing ice that is automatically dispensed into packaging or bulk containers. The high quality workmanship of these dispensers insures years of trouble-free operation.
Bulk Ice Storage and Surge
This is a complete bulk ice storage system ideal for the packaged ice industry. It includes a rake assembly, motor / drive, hydraulic hoist assembly, bin liner, bin support structure, electric control panel with programmable controls, load-detector and starters for all motors supplied.
Turbo has been manufacturing ice handling products since 1967, solving ice storage and handling problems for all these years. Turbo Ice Rakes incorporate functionally-interrelated features designed to deliver extended, dependable performance with minimum maintenance.
How an Ice Rake Works:
During the fill cycle, the rake sweeps the ice delivered from the ice makers and levels it over the length of the bin. The hydraulic hoist automatically adjusts the height of the rake to the volume of the ice in the bin. A limit switch automatically stops the ice makers when the rake is in the “fill-up” position, indicating the bin is full of ice.

The Keith® WALKING FLOOR® bulk ice system conveniently stores and meters ice to processing systems. The Keith ice bin provides an uninterrupted flow of bulk ice. A series of hydraulically powered floor slats convey the ice toward the unique vertical comb system, where congealed ice is gently metered forward. This product can be custom engineered to handle unlimited tonnage. In addition, the Keith ice storage system provides a true first in, first out product rotation, without leaving residual ice in the bin.
The Keith® WALKING FLOOR® is the gentlest bulk ice storage system with the fewest moving parts available in the ice industry. The WALKING FLOOR® system yields no residual clean up and eliminates additional snow created by conventional ice moving systems that constantly scrape your product. The design simplicity of the WALKING FLOOR® not only preserves your product but also yields less down-time and fewer costly repairs.
For more than 20 years, Keith Manufacturing has been recognized as the leader in moving floor technology. With over ten thousand units operating around the globe and more than 70 patents worldwide, Keith® WALKING FLOOR® material handling systems are custom-designed for each application using the latest technology, innovative engineering, high quality components and uncompromising craftsmanship.
