It’s never been more essential to have safe ice dispensing systems in the Healthcare sector than now. A counter top ice maker for hospitals offers dynamic ice dispensing solutions.

At Ice Machines Direct, we understand that ice machines are one of the essential components for hospitals. Ice is used every day in hospitals by the staff, patients and visitors for various purposes. We supply ice machines that provide ice for more than just beverages. The machines are designed to minimise the chances of accidental contamination in healthcare settings. 

Importance Of Ice Machines In Hospitals And Healthcare Facilities 

The healthcare ice machines can dispense ice directly into a cup or container with just the push of a button. Chewable nugget ices are most commonly used in healthcare units and facilities for patients who are having a hard time swallowing liquid or need cold compress treatments to recover. Having an ice maker is a way to keep the patients and visitors hydrated. If you are looking for ice makers for your healthcare unit in Australia, then you’re at the right place.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • What Type of Ice Machine Condenser Do I Need?

    There are three types of ice machines for hospital use. These are:

    • Air cooled ice machines that are highly cost-effective.
    • Water-cooled ice machines that take up very little space, but still provide a significant amount of ice. Rarely used these days on in very hot climates with little to no ventilation.
    • Remote condenser ice machines, where the condenser unit can be installed away from the ice machine outside the building with a significant amount of ventilation.
  • How Much Ice Do I Need for My Hospital?

    When you're looking at ice makers for health care, approximately 200-300 grams per jug or patient is s good estimate.  When selecting the right ice dispenser for your ward or department you should look at the storage bin first to ensure if you are requiring to fill all the patient jugs up in the morning you have enough in storage to support this.  Our TCS180 ice and water dispenser is perfect for up to 20beds wards and our TCL180 with a larger 9kg storage bin can support a 30 bed ward.

  • What Types of Hospital Ice Makers Are There?

    Health care ice machines come in a variety of sizes and shapes to meet your individual requirements. These include:

    • Countertop dispenser ice makers.
    • Modular Head and Dispenser Storage bin ice machines.
    • Commercial ice dispensers.

    Ideally you should go for a machine that either produces nugget ice or flake ice.
