Ice flakes are defined as extra fine particles of ice that are ideally used foe chilling fresh and frozen food and used in diagnostic and clinical laboratories. Ice flaking machines have wide variety of application such as in manufacturing industries, food beverages industries and clinical diagnosis. Ice flakes are loose ice with irregular particle size. Ice flaking machine are devices that make ice for various industrial and healthcare sectors. Ice flaking machines used in the medical sector and healthcare facilities are far different from food services industries.
Flake ice is used to treat injuries such as bruises, sprains, or contusions and is also used to transport medical supplies and delicate tissues and organs. Ice flakes are used in laboratories, emergency rooms, physical therapy centers and rehabilitation center. Hospitals use nuggets and ice makers for cold compression therapy, which lessen inflammation and swelling to the tissues.
The advantages associated with ice flaking machines are impeccable. They aid in preservation of organs & also help in providing temporary refrigeration for lab work. Another crucial aspect of ice flaking machines is that it also helps with cooling patients who feel feverish and provokes a feeling of relaxation in them.
Increasing number of surgeries and road accidents in turn increase the use of ice flakes during physical therapy, which is expected to drive the growth of the ice flaking machine market. Increasing research and development and increase in chronic disease and infection increases the demand for refrigeration for lab work, which is also expected to drive the growth of the ice flaking machine market.
Advancement in technology and organ transplant surgeries contribute to the growth of the ice flaking machine market. Increase in diagnostic and clinical laboratories, which uses ice flakes for storing the blood samples, propel the growth of ice flakes machine market. However, high prevalence of hospital-acquired infection is expected to hinder the growth of ice flaking machine market.
