Making Ice

Originally all manufactured ice was frozen into blocks. Galvanized steel cans filled with water are still lowered into the original brine tank which is maintained at 15-22 degrees F. After about a 48-hour freezing time, 300-pound blocks in four-can grids are ready to be harvested. A grid is lifted by a hoist and dipped into a water tank to cause enough ice to melt to allow the blocks to float free from the cans. The grid is then hoisted onto a tilting raceway which allows the blocks to slide through to the adjoining freezer room storage.
