ICE MANAGEMENT Software Cool Solutions For the Modern Iceman!

Cool Running

Cool Running Software was created in 2004 by Olmsted Ice in Cleveland, Ohio. Since that time, the software has grown and evolved from a Client Server System to the new Cloud Server System.

Cool Running was created by a team of developers alongside experienced icemen to create a product that was made for the way an iceman likes to do business.

A tour of our product shows the many ways that an iceman’s influence has shaped the development of the software.

Vogt - Tube Ice | Turbo

Vogt revolutionized the commercial ice-making industry in 1938 when it built the world’s first automatic sized ice machine, the Tube-Ice Machine. Prior to this, ice was made in block form. Vogt engineers designed the unique Tube-Ice Machine specifically to freeze ice automatically in vertical tubes, momentarily thaw ice loose from the tubes and then cut it into short cylinders with a hole in the center. The hole in the ice cube is formed during the formation of the ice as a result of the falling film of water freezing inside the vertical tubes.

Today, Vogt ice machines offer a wide variety of ice to suit any of your ice needs including fragmented, cracked, crushed, flake, and of course the original Tube Ice in an assortment of sizes. We also manufacture the Turbo Ice Rake, manual and automatic block presses as well as falling film chillers.
