Scotsman Nugget Heads produce Nugget ice, which is highly compressed flake ice. An internal evaporator cylinder creates a thin layer of ice on the inner surface of the cylinder. Then an auger spins and cuts up the ice layer into flakes. As it spins, the auger blades push the flake ice up towards the cylinder top. At the top of the cylinder are extrusion holes where the flake ice is forced through, compressed tightly together, and then cut up into the nugget shapes. Nugget ice is highly sought after due to its chewable nature and the fact that the spaces between the ice flakes can hold liquid, so when the nuggets are chewed, the flavor of the beverage can be experienced again.
