When it comes to Food preservation and cooling equipment, Howe is the name to know.

Howe Corporation has been in the business of preserving foods since it’s early days. Back in those days, we were known as Howe Ice Machine company, however back then Ice machines were refrigeration compressors used to produce block ice which was then shaved into shaved or cubed ice that was used to cool and preserve fresh meat and dairy products.

With Howe’s long history in the food industry, it was a natural evolution to find a better way to provide a means of producing shaved ice. Somewhere in the late forties, we developed the Howe Flake Ice Maker. This ice flaker was a vast improvement form the block ice shaved down to a usable shaved ice for food cooling. The benefit of the flaker producing fresh flakes of ice is the immediate availability. Shaving block ice was a long and tedious process, first, the blocks had to be frozen completely, then they would need to be shaved down adding time and precious resources to complete the process. The new Howe Ice Flakers will freeze and harvest the flakers of ice in one rotation of the machine, which rotated about 3 times a minute making the ice flakers very energy efficient.
