Follett R.I.D.E. Featuring Chewblet

Follett R.I.D.E. Featuring Chewblet

Hi! I'm Chewblet, the ice your customers love to chew! You might wonder what am I doing way back here in this ice machine? Seventy-five feet away from your customer's beverage. Well, I won't be here for long. Excuse me, I don't want to miss my ride. That trip into this ice dispenser was good, clean fun for me! But for you, it's the cleanest, coolest way to manage ice today. And "cool" is something I know something about. Let me show you. See, I'm born back here in a Follett ice machine with R.I.D.E. Remote Ice Delivery Equipment. The only ice machine that can automatically deliver ice to a drink station, storage bin, or jockey box by pushing ice through a transport tube. That means the ice machine can be placed out of sight, in a back room, under a counter, even mounted on the wall up to 75 feet away. You get clean ice delivered automatically without coming in to contact with human hands. Without the need for a bulky, noisy ice machine sitting on top of your dispenser. Because you know what that means, heat and noise in your dining area. Not to mention messy maintenance crews blocking your drink station to service the ice machine. Who'd want to buy a drink if you have to walk under a ladder? That's bad luck. And when it comes to keeping your dispenser clean, well that's what we call "a real pain in the ice." You just can't clean what you can't get to. With R.I.D.E. Remote Ice Delivery, you can easily pop the lid to clean your dispenser. Follett takes that bulky, top-mounted ice machine out of your customer's face, giving you the ultimate design flexibility and a more open, quiet, inviting area for your customers to get a drink. And best of all, you get me Chewblet! The chewable ice your customers choose for their beverages because everybody knows, cubes are just square. Thanks for watching, but you've got to excuse me now, I've got a drink to chill.

Follett Corporation MCD425ABS Details

Save energy, water, and money by choosing this Follett MCD425ABS Maestro Plus 19" air cooled Chewblet ice machine. This ice machine can produce up to 425 lb. of specialized Chewblet ice in a 24 hour period. As part of the Maestro Plus series, this ice machine is the epitome of durability and longevity. It features a durable construction with a sturdy stainless steel frame. It also has oversized, heavy-duty tapered roller bearings that ensure a long, low-maintenance lifespan. Other great features include automatic self-flushing to remove impurities and a compact design for convenient installation.

This machine is ideally designed for use with an ice storage bin. Since it comes with remote ice delivery equipment (RIDE), it can deliver ice through a tube to an ice storage bin up to 20' away! That means it doesn't need to be mounted directly on a bin. This is ideal if you have low ceilings so that an ice maker won't fit on top of your ice storage bin. It also allows full access to the bin for faster, more thorough cleaning. As an added benefit, you can install the ice maker away from customer areas to reduce heat, noise, and disruptions to improve guest experience.

Using R404-A refrigerant and an extrusion system, this ice machine creates Follett's special Chewblet ice. As a chewable type of ice, Chewblet is a preferred choice of customers! Plus, Chewblet ice provides superior drink displacement to help lower your drink costs and increase profits. At the same time, it provides the same drink and coldplate chilling performance as regular cubed ice.

To protect against the growth of bacteria or mold, this unit has Agion silver-based antimicrobial technology built into the key components. Also, this durable, professional-looking ice machine features an easy-to-read LED control board for simple operation and maintenance. This model requires a 115V, single phase electrical connection for operation.
