Vogt Ice Machines
Why is Vogt® the best selection for Ice Makers?
The Most Energy Efficient Industrial Ice Machines
Vogt® Tube-Ice® Machines are the most energy efficient ice makers available. Independent tests have shown Vogt® Tube-Ice® Machines to be two to three times more efficient than some other competitive ice makers. In a very short time, the energy savings alone may pay for the entire cost of the new Vogt® Tube-Ice® Machine installation. Refer to the chart above and compare the current manufacturing cost to the cost of making ice with a Vogt® ice maker.
Vogt® Ice Machines Are Dependable
Vogt sets the standards of quality against which all other ice makers are measured. Vogt® discovered long ago that ice makers equipped with light, inexpensive parts break down more often, resulting in excessive maintenance and downtime. Therefore, Vogt’s craftsmen use only the finest materials and components available to manufacture the quality Vogt® Tube-Ice® machines. No other ice machine operates as trouble-free and with less maintenance than a Vogt®.
Long Service Life
No other ice maker lasts as long as a Vogt® Tube-Ice® Machine. All fabrication takes place in Vogt’s modern production facility where components are built heavy-duty to ensure durability and long service life. Today, it is common to find 30-year-old Tube-Ice® machines in daily operation.
Uniform Tube Design
Vogt® Tube-Ice® machines produce the ice that your customers desire. Tube-Ice® is available in three different sizes; 7/8″, 1-1/8″, or 1-3/8″ diameter, each sized approximately 1″ long. Vogt® Tube-Ice® provides you with the flexibility you need to meet the demands of your particular market, while preserving the integrity of a quality cube-type product. Since Vogt® Tube-Ice® machines produce a sized product with minimal chips, there is little need to employ expensive ice screening and sizing equipment. In addition, since very little, if any, chips and fines are separated and disposed of, more usable ice is preserved for the bag.
