Dear Valued Customer,

 

We ask that you read the instruction manual thoroughly before using your new Sno-Block® or Spinner-Block® Ice Machine.

 

The Sno-Block® and Spinner Block® machines have copyrights and are registered trademarks. There is only one Sno-Block® and Spinner-Block® designed and developed by Larry N. Buras, and is marketed by Delta Ice, Air, & Heat, Incorporated.

 

The Sno-Block® Ice Machines were designed for the New Orleans style shavers with the square blocks of ice and the Spinner-Block® Ice Machines were designed for the Hatsuyuki®, Swan®, and the Fugimarca® Japanese style shavers, with the round cylinder ice; however, they can be used in other applications including fishing charter businesses or ice houses.

About the Sno-Block

The Sno-Block machine produces block ice in the exact dimensions required for use in the New Orleans style shavers and it does so at a cost of around 1 penny a pound. The ice produced is excellent for Snow-Balls, softer than commercial ice and extends the life of your shaver blades between sharpening.

 

At the beginning and end of the Snow-Ball season, when full harvest of ice is not needed, you may take from the machine only the ice you need. The remaining ice will be stored at the proper temperature. The Termostat will regulate the compressor and your electric bill will be reduced accordingly.

 

The Sno-Block cabinet is constructed of durable gel-coated fiberglass with foamed-in-place insulation. The warranty covers one year on all parts and the compressor.

 

The 304 stainless steel sanitary ice cans measure approximately 5.5" x 5.5" x 16" and each block of ice they produce weighs between 12 and 14 pounds. Plastic polyurethane cans are also available.
