Large Capacity Ice Storage

North Star rectangular storage systems are ideal for operations that require large storage capacities and where ice consumption varies greatly from day to day. Rectangular systems hold between 100 and 250 tons (91 to 227 MT) of ice and offer the greatest capacity per unit of floor area.

Equipment Features

Rectangular ice storage systemStandard Features

  • North Star storage systems are built with heavy-duty industrial grade components for continuous operation, long life and low maintenance.
  • North Star’s patented ice rake levels the ice as it is produced by the ice maker, then sweeps it out of the bin during the discharge cycle.
  • The hoist automatically adjusts the height of the rake to level the ice in the bin.
  • The rectangular system features a motorized bin door that opens automatically to discharge ice on demand. Twin screw conveyors carry the ice to the delivery system.
  • Standard ice bin components are hot-dipped galvanized. Stainless steel options are also available.
  • Control panels can be designed to accommodate dual rake systems, multiple ice makers or other design options. The panel integrates starter and logic controls for the ice maker, storage system and delivery system. Other components can be added as well.


  • Control panels are also available with optional programmable logic controller and operator interface panel.
  • All systems include state-of -the-art safety and protection features.
  • All systems can be equipped with either a pneumatic delivery system or screw conveyor system.
  • Custom sized and designed to fit available space and maximize ice storage requirements.
  • Configurable for almost limitless designs.
  • CE compliant.


North Star Rectangular Storage Systems can be custom-designed to fit any facility. The images shown below are typical configurations.
