About North Star

North Star — World Leader in Ice Technology

Since its inception in 1950, North Star Ice Equipment has led the world in the design and manufacture of state-of-the-art flake ice making, ice storage and ice delivery equipment. North Star pioneered the development of technology that has become the standard in the flake ice industry, including:

  • The production of flake ice for industrial use. North Star sub-cooled flake ice chills faster and is easier to handle than any other type of ice.
  • Flake ice makers with stationary, vertical evaporators to eliminate rotating refrigerant seals.
  • Ice makers that produce ice on the inside surface of the evaporator, completely surrounded by insulation, preventing its exposure to high ambient temperatures.
  • The world’s first ice storage system with automatic ice delivery features.
  • Advances in the pneumatic conveying of ice vertically and horizontally over long distances.

Today, North Star continues to set the standard for flake ice production, storage and delivery technology by developing new products that maintain high standards of quality, technology and design. The company combines a commitment to innovation with decades of ice making experience to manufacture a line of ice making and storage equipment our customers can rely on.
