A modern ice and water dispenser that dispenses nugget-style ice

This Scotsman ice and water dispenser is a member of their Meridian series. It produces up to 500 pounds per day, has 25 pounds of storage, and comes in two configurations: dispensing via infrared motion sensors (model HID525A-1) or via push buttons (model HID525AB-1). It is air-cooled, and it dispenses nugget-style ice.

Scotsman Meridian ice and water dispensers are a combination of reliability, efficient serviceability, and easy cleanability. They contain industry-leading technologies, like Scotsman’s greaseless bearings, which are sealed and have no ball bearings. This eliminates the need for grease, contributes to a longer lifespan, and ultimately reduces service costs. Additionally, the infrared design of these dispensers eliminates levers and buttons which decreases the risk of contamination while being serviced. The air filter is external and easy to clean.

All Meridian units feature a silver-based antimicrobial compound that is molded into components to prevent the growth of mold, algae, bacteria, and other non-desirables. At dimensions (WDH) of 21.25” x 24.38” x 35”, this dispenser has one of the lowest operational footprints on the market. It is NSF Certified, and Energy Star certified.

Nugget ice is the softest, chewable ice on the market. It started as a solution for hospital patients who have trouble chewing but has grown in popularity with regular consumers. Restaurant chains like Sonic have built their menu around this ice, offering ice-heavy drinks for patrons that love crunching ice. These ice and water dispensers offer nugget-style ice, the softest and most satisfying ice on the market.
