Helpful Terms and Definitions Regarding Ice Distribution

As you may know, many businesses rely on ice every day. While most people enjoy ice in their homes, and use it to make beverages cold, restaurants and other professionals use it on a larger scale. For instance, catering services often require ice to chill bottles of beer and soda, while professional sculptors use it to create centerpieces for parties and weddings. Fortunately there are both wholesale and retail ice distributors that keep ample amounts of ice in storage freezers, and sell it by the bag or load. To better understand the different aspects of this business, it is helpful to know a few key terms that apply.

  • Dry Ice – This is basically solid carbon dioxide. It is typically used as a coolant for various foods and frozen goods. Dry ice evaporates without actually converting to a liquid form. It is used to create artificial fog and smoke effects as well.
  • Rime Ice – An ice coating that is often found on trees, grass and foliage when precipitation occurs during frigid temperatures. Droplets of water are virtually frozen on impact with the cold object.
  • Channel Luge – This is a luge or ice sculpture that is shaved and carved with a track or channel in it. This allows for a liquid to flow down or through the channel. It functions similar to a luge for bobsleds.
  • Glassing – This is the process of using heat to smooth and clear up ice. It actually causes the block or sculpture to have a clear glass or crystal-like clarity.
  • Wholesale Ice Distributor – A professional business or distributor that keeps large quantities of ice in a cold storage facility or large freezer. This way it can be delivered to retail businesses, grocery stores, and restaurants in bulk.

    Ice, which is basically frozen water, is available for sale at any number of retail or wholesale establishments. People may need ice for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is to keep food cold. A family going camping may stock up on some bags of ice to use in coolers, while an artist may need several large blocks of ice to form sculptures. Restaurants, bars, clubs, and residential consumers are all typical customers of ice providers. Ice can be shaved, sculpted, crushed, or it can come in block form. It's great for drinks, which is why commercial dining establishments need lots of crushed ice on hand. Consumers can make their own ice in their freezers or they can purchase it from retailers and wholesalers. They usually come in bags and are available in storage cases at the front of many grocery stores and convenience stores. Having a party? Grab a few bags of ice at the store. Need to chill shrimp at a wedding reception? Contract with a local bulk provider. Companies that provide ice should pride themselves on its purity, clarity, and density. Customers should pick clear ice from a reputable company. From dry ice to storage freezer ice to sport dispensers, this cold frozen liquid can be used for just about anything. Chill a bottle of champagne, keep a bag in the freezer for injuries, or order in bulk for your summer party from a wholesaler or distributor. Transportation companies are another type of customer that may benefit from bulk ice. Customers can learn more about ice and how it's distributed by researching online. They can also get listings of local convenience stores, distributors, and wholesalers that may carry this cold product for home delivery.
