The Matthiesen Block Press converts all types of ice into a slow melting saleable block. This quiet, easy to use machine is perfect for producing consistently sized blocks of ice and increasing profits.

Ice is loaded into a top hopper then released into the block chamber. The loose ice is water injected then hydraulically pressed into a consistent size, shape and weight block.  The block is discharged from the machine to be bagged.

  • Consistent size, shape and weight blocks
  • Converts plate, tube, flake, snow or cubes
  • One man operation
  • Blocks stack perfectly in freezers or mechandisers
