The HDT Containerized Ice Making System (CIMS) is a tricon-style, expeditionary-grade military containerized ice plant that makes 3,600 pounds (1632.9 kg) of ice per day at 120°F (48.9°C) ambient conditions. Built to operate in extreme environments, CIMS only requires water and power to make ice. The system generates ice, then bags the ice, seals the bags, and stores 30 to 60 ten-pound (4.5 kg) bags internally. The CIMS is ideal for battlefield kitchen and medical applications for all services, as well as humanitarian aid and disaster relief efforts.

Features include:

  • Generates 3,600 pounds (1632.9 kg) of ice per day at 120°F (48.9°C) ambient temperature
  • Fully automated system makes ice, bags the ice, seals the bags, stores the bags internally and stops when full
  • Transportable by five-ton and larger trucks, ship, rail, and aircraft (both fixed and rotary wing)
  • Moveable with standard material handling equipment
  • Supports Army Force Provider, Air Force Basic Expeditionary Airfield Resources (BEAR), field feeding and medical elements for all services, humanitarian aid, and disaster relief efforts
  • Operates with bladder or tank water – no pressurized water system needed
  • Water-saver feature reduces water consumption by over 400 gallons per day over traditional 3,600 lb ice makers
  • Human-Machine-Interface (HMI) panel assists in operation and maintenance
