Understanding New Energy Star Requirements for Commercial Ice Makers

The Energy Star program began in the United States in 1992. Backed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the goal of the program was to improve energy efficiency to help consumers save money while benefiting the environment. To date, over 3.5 trillion kilowatt hours of electricity have been saved along with $450 billion dollars.

An Introduction to ACIM Specification Version 3.0

In May 2017, the Version 3.0 ENERGY STAR Automatic Commercial Ice Maker (ACIM) Specification was effective January 28, 2018. Units not meeting the new specification no longer can carry the Energy Star symbol. The ACIM category was introduced into the Energy Star program over a decade ago and initially included water and energy savings.

Now, certifying under Version 3.0, ACIM energy usage requirements are even more restrictive.  This results in significant financial and environmental savings.  As with previous versions of the ENERGY STAR program, consumers and contractors can compare certified products side by side at the same operating conditions.  For example, ENERGY STAR publishes Ice Hardness Factor which compares the cooling capacity of the ice produced to that of pure ice by percentage.

Your need for Howe Flake Ice: If you follow our Twitter page, you know that one of the biggest industries we serve is the seafood industry.  Just take a look at how mesmerized we were by the Feast of Seven Fishes! The seafood industry is one of the most important industries to utilize flake ice in an effort to plan how to keep your seafood/fish fresh. As an industry member, it is vital to note how to keep fish fresh from harvest to plate. In addition to keeping fish safe and cool, flake ice helps all types of seafood retain optimal levels of color, moisture, and general presentation qualities—essential for both wholesale and retail applications. You want the most exquisite presentation for your table this time of year!

Our favorite dessert associated with the holidays has got to be pie! Whether you prefer  apple, blueberry, rhubarb, or chocolate, we know it’s on your baking list!

Gather together the following ingredients: packed brown sugar, butter, light corn syrup, salt, eggs, pecan halves or whole pieces, and deep dish pie crust (premade). Bake on a preheated cookie sheet for 15-45 minutes until the center is complete. And voila! Add a scoop of your favorite strawberry or vanilla ice cream and a dollop of whipped cream for that special touch.

Find the recipe: http://ow.ly/oZ2w30hcCuq

Your need for Howe Flake Ice: Items like cream and butter spoil easily.

Howe’s Expanding with New Costa Rica Location!

Since 1912 Howe has continued to be the proven best choice in the Ice Flaker marketplace, and because of our continued success in Central America, we have expanded our sales locations to include beautiful San José, Costa Rica. Here, the “Rican” saying of ‘Pura Vida’ paves the way for Howe to provide our robust quality flake ice machines to the region.  As industry leader know, without the coldest and longest lasting ice, the Central American region would be deprived of fresh quality food, discounting the Rican ‘Only life’ mantra.

San José provides the region comprised of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Honduras, the ability to quickly access replacement

parts and equipment while enjoying the benefits of CAFTA (Central American Free Trade Agreement). Locals enjoy virtually duty-free imports while benefiting from the superior craftsmanship of the Chicago made ice-flake technology and an efficient supply chain that delivers lower lead-times to market process.

Affording industry leaders with Howe’s quality is a natural fit as Central American’s are demanding increased food processing and safety standards; not to mention all of the benefits that an Energy-Star partner provides in helping maintain lower operating costs.

The new office is located in Escazú, a short 30-minute drive from the international airport and has quick access to major industrial and supermarket retailers in the area. The office, complete with in-stock machinery, parts, service, and sales representatives, is now local and open for business at your service.

So, if your travels bring you to San José, or if you’re a Central America local, give us a call or better yet, stop in and say hello to find out why Howe is synonymous with Pura Vida.

We’ve Got a List of Delicious Frozen Drink Recipes to Stay Cool this Summer!

In the midst of the summer heat what better way to kick back and relax than with a frothy, ice cold drink? Trust the flake ice experts at Howe with these fun recipes we’ve broken down based upon your weekly plans. They’re good for on-the-go or to make at home with your own special touch too!

  1. Snow Cones: This treat is great for both children and adults! No planned activities to fill up your day? Perfect–try visiting the ball park, regular park, or zoo to enjoy some quality time outside with this cold drink. A delicious avalanche of cool is always a guaranteed crowd pleaser.

Ingredients: 2 cups white sugar (pure cane or granulated), 1 cup water, 1 package Kool-Aid (interchange with an option like fruit-flavored soft drink mix or flavored syrup), paper cup(s) full of shaved ice, number varying based upon how many individuals are spending the day together!

  1. Fruit Smoothies: Again, this option is ideal for both kids and adults. Give kids a healthy treat to add a burst of enthusiasm to their sports games. Pair with a salty snack like pretzels and you’ve hit the jackpot! Also, if you’re exercising later, this works wonders before or after your workout.

Ingredients: This will vary depending on the flavor you want–we like strawberry/banana! 1 quart diced strawberries, 1 chopped banana, 2 cups flake ice ;), and blend to your desired consistency! To make this delicacy sweeter, try adding a flavored fruit juice. Go 100% fruit to skip the processed sugar all together.

  1. Frozen Margaritas: Adults only! Just what you need for a night out on the town, to spice up girls-night, or enjoyably shared in with your significant other.

Ingredients: Get the blender ready! Triple sec, tequila, lime juice, ice, and salt around the rim. Amounts vary depending on the type of bartender you are and the pour you have! But we’ll recommend two quarts flake ice, 1 can of frozen limeade (concentrate), 12 ounces of total liquor (broken up to your personal preference and satisfaction). Add lime and salt for added flavor!

  1. The Classic Mint Mojito: Adults only! Have this refreshing choice hanging out by the pool, at the beach bar, or on the lake with friends.

Ingredients: 10 fresh mint leaves, 1 lime, a sprinkle of white sugar, 1 ½ fluid ounces of rum, ½ cup of club soda, served on ice (your choice of cube, crushed, slushed, or flake).

  1. Frozen Sangria: Adults only! Who doesn’t have a glass of wine after work? Indulge during personal Netflix and chill time!

Ingredients: 2 pints your choice of fruit flavored sorbet (ex: raspberry), ½ a lime, ½ a bottle of Cabernet (this can also vary pending preference of white or red, sweet or dry). Adding real berries to the top will give you that extra dazzle you’re looking for! Not to mention, it will make your sangria more flavorful too! If you’re interested in a thicker consistency, flake ice is the ideal option. 

Are you ready for a frozen drink yet? We are too! Let’s breakaway from the computer (after you check out our incredible flake ice options!) and select a delightful indulgence that matches your summer plans above!

Support the Produce Industry: The United Fresh Expo is this Week

About the Show

The United Fresh Expo  will be held at the Chicago’s McCormick Place in the West Hall from June 13th through the 15th.  Although the Howe Corporation will not be exhibiting at the event, our office and plant are located within few miles of the McCormick Place and we would happy to meet to review the benefits of Howe Ice in the produce industry.  Attendees and exhibitors are welcome to tour our plant, see how our equipment is manufactured and touch our ice.   Please contact us to schedule your tour.

The event will showcase the latest in creative produce items, fresh food trends, and cutting edge industry tools and technology, including networking and leading industry education opportunities, a consultation center where you can speak to the experts, and last but not least, new produce awards. New to the show this year: robotics and supply chain technology, and conference sessions to help industry professionals grow their business. Simply put, the United Fresh Expo is produce innovation at its best.

Through networking you will find both family companies and global corporations from across the board, giving you the opportunity to nurture new and old business relationships, with contract options also available. Retailers, wholesalers, food service companies and new channel buyers will all be in attendance. The ultimate goal of the conference: to build long-term success for members/attendees and to continuously grow produce consumption.

New to the show this year is the Organic Produce Showcase, highlighting new products and organic providers. Some of the new features include prepared meal solutions, convenient snacks, a variety of fresh juices, salsas, soups, dips, and more. Other focuses include the fresh-cut processing sector, farm to table, mechanical harvesting, robotics, packaging and food safety.

Think Globally, Act Locally

One initiative Howe is proud to back is “think globally, act locally.” For more about growing the local food market, revisit our article, “Preserving Foods at the Local Level.” A common industry thread is the effort to help raise visibility to keep local economies sustainable. United Fresh Expo very clearly backs this mission as well. Benefits entail high levels of flavors and nutrients from crops picked at their peak, less travel distances saves energy, and there is less chance for contamination and food spoilage which ultimately eliminates waste. Buying food from a local supplier also helps farmers to receive retail prices as opposed to selling products for wholesale and nearly at-cost leading to minimal profit.

Howe’s mission is to keep your food fresh and safe. As we know, maintaining the quality of freshly harvested food can be a challenge. One of the most reliable and time-honored methods is using flake ice. For over 50 years, Howe Corporation has helped the produce industry keep their products fresh.

Here’s the breakdown of Howe flake ice:

·        Flake ice surface area gives exceptional cooling capabilities

·        Compared to the competition our ice has fewer sharp edges that can damage food

·        Since our ice is the coldest/longest lasting YOU SAVE in labor, water, and energy

·        Flake ice helps local farmers display fresh and fully hydrated food

·        Display is appealing for MAXIMIZING YOUR SALES

Howe is Your Provider of Premium Ice Machines

Howe flake ice machines help local food producers ship, preserve, and display harvests. We offer a number of long-lasting machines that produce ice at all different volumes, perfect for fresh foods of all kinds. To learn more about our flake ice machines and how they can add quality and value to all levels of local food production and your business, please contact us today.

BBQ Time – Keep it Cold

BBQ season is coming around the corner, and while plenty of folks will be focused on getting their grills and smokers cleaned and ready to go, here at Howe Corporation we’ve got a different concern – making sure that meat stays chilled and as fresh as possible, from the stream or pasture all the way to your grill. Steak, sausage, seafood, and even chicken can all benefit from what we do here at Howe.

 

 

 

 

At Howe, we specialize in flake-ice machines that create dry, flat flakes of ice. By creating thin flakes with high surface area, the ice provides more cooling capacity. As ice is harvested straight from the evaporator, there is no need for heating cycles to release the ice, and constant squeegee action keeps moisture from building up. Not only does this make flake ice energy-efficient, but it also prevents the flakes from fusing together. We can meet your needs with 1,000 lbs. through 20,000 lbs. of flake ice per day with energy and maintenance savings.

So what makes flake ice the best option for cooling your BBQ meat? Unlike other forms of ice, flake ice creates even coverage all over the meat, so there is temperature uniformity. This means the ice can go straight from cooling to the grille, without worrying that certain parts of the cut may need a longer cook time due to uneven cooling. As it does not have the sharp edges or corners of cubes and nuggets, there is less risk of ice cuts or bruising to the meat.

This ability to provide the optimal meat cooling ice was one of the reasons we were such a hit at trade shows like the International Meat Expo and the Annual Meat Conference. The former, a three-day international event held in Atlanta in late January, concentrated on the innovation in cooling, while providing valuable education to attendees. The latter, held in Texas in late February, focused more for meat retailers.

At tradeshows, our team from Howe is commonly on hand to demonstrate how our flake ice machines provide efficient, effective cooling for supermarkets, butchers, fisheries, and other industries. Helping clients understand the benefits of our machine will help to provide fish and meats that are perfectly cooled and displayed in an eye-catching manner.

To find out how flake ice machines can be the right fit for your meat-cooling needs – or other needs, as flake ice is perfect for tasks such as rapidly removing field heat, cooling during transportation, and preservation for the best quality,  long-lasting products.  Get in touch with our team here at Howe. You can also get regular updates through our Twitter and LinkedIn pages, and keep an eye on our blog for useful information!

See Howe at Seafood Expo NA

March might go in like a lion and come out like a lamb but the middle is all about seafood! It’s that time of year again when we head to Boston for the annual Seafood Expo North America (NA). We’ve been attending for 20 years and still consider this the highlight of our year.

Seafood Expo NA will be held on March 19-21 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in Boston, MA. As last year, Howe will occupy Booth #1464. Join us and be part of the excitement surroundings where global seafood leaders will come together. Howe top product experts will be ready to explain the benefits of flake ice, answer questions on cooling with flake ice, and demonstrate the making of flake ice with our running 2000-lb flake ice machine. We will also have a large capacity 5-ton flake ice machine in our booth.

This event gives us the opportunity to showcase our outstanding capabilities in the refrigeration industry. With over 100 years in business, we have seen the evolution of cooling and refrigeration equipment. The RapidFreeze® line of ice flakers delivers up to 20,000 lbs. of ice per day extremely economically. More cooling capacity is achieved with flake ice than any other form of ice such as tube, plate, shell, or crushed.

Because of flake ice’s superior cooling properties, it is an ideal cooling medium for seafood. Flake ice provides more surface area for cooling fish and seafood products to uniform temperatures, cushions products against damage, and reduces weight loss from dehydration that occurs in other types of refrigeration. In addition, flake ice sparkles more than other ice making products appear more attractive in displays as it preserves its freshness

As a special offering to our customers, we would like everyone to be able to attend Seafood Expo for free. This VIP Invitation gives you access to the exhibit hall to make new connections, find new products, and tap into invaluable industry expertise that can be applied to your business. We’d also like to invite you stop by our booth (#1464) and say hello!

We hope to see you at Seafood Expo NA! Follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn to stay connected to us throughout the show and remember to read our blog to see what we’re up to next!
