The HDT Containerized Ice Making System (CIMS) is a tricon style, containerized ice plant that makes 1,800 pounds (816.5 kg) of ice per day at 130°F (54.4°C) ambient conditions. The system generates ice, bags the ice, seals the bags, and stores from 30 to 60 ten-pound (4.5 kg) bags internally. The CIMS is ideal for battlefield kitchen/field feeding and medical applications for all services, as well as humanitarian aid and disaster relief efforts.
