What Is Flake Ice?
What Flake Ice Can Do
Part of what makes flake ice so special is its versatility and efficiency. That’s why businesses and industries across the product and service spectrum rely on it daily. Want to learn how flake ice is used? We covered how flake ice (also known as chip ice) is used in a previous blog. For now, let’s explore what flake ice can do.
A Quick Cool
Flake ice is the best ice on the market for cooling products fast and keeping them colder for longer. You might find this hard to believe since ice flakes are small and powdery. Shouldn’t a giant ice block be the most efficient way to keep products cool? As it turns out, bigger isn’t always better when it comes to ice.
Remember we said flake ice is flat and thin with lots of surface area? Put on your science caps for a moment. Heat transfer occurs when ice melts, and thin flakes of ice melt pretty quickly. So the faster flake ice melts, the faster it pulls heat away from your product. That’s how flake ice is so efficient at cooling products and keeping them colder, longer. Flake ice may be small, but it delivers big results.
Packs and Protects
Not only is flake ice the best ice for keeping products cool, it can also protect products from damage. Flake ice packs well and can be molded into and around lots of different shapes. So even as it cools the product, flake ice is working overtime to cushion and protect against damage, too. Since flake ice is flat, there are no sharp edges and jagged points to damage delicate products.
In fact, flake ice was created with this application in mind. Businesses needed better ice that wouldn’t damage their products, so flake ice was the solution. It’s the best in the business at packing tightly and protecting rightly.
