Choosing the Best Freezing Surface
for your Application

North Star offers two freezing surfaces in our line of industrial flake ice makers – stainless steel and carbon steel. Both offer distinct advantages depending on the application in which they are used. Stainless steel is recommended for most food applications because it is corrosion-resistant and easily sanitized. Carbon steel offers high capacity production for non-food applications. Both types of solid steel freezing surfaces are superior to chrome plating, which can flake and peel.

THE ADVANTAGES OF STAINLESS STEEL

  • Worldwide acceptance as the superior material for food processing equipment
  • Easily cleaned and sanitized
  • Corrosion-resistant
  • Stable, non-reactive and non-absorbent
  • Highly durable under continuous use
  • Recyclable

THE ADVANTAGES OF CARBON STEEL

  • High capacity ice production
  • Economical
  • Corrosion-resistant while ice maker is in use, and with proper protection when not in use
  • Highly durable under continuous use
  • Recyclable
