May 15th, 2007

SELLERSBURG, IN– Servend, a leading manufacturer of beverage dispensers for the foodservice industry, introduces the new S-150 ice countertop dispenser with a Flomatic water valve option.

The addition of the S-150 completes the newly redesigned line of ice/water dispensers that currently includes the S-200 and S-250. All ice dispensers feature a no-hassle one-piece structural base, and a strengthened drive train, resulting in a more durable ice dispenser. The one-piece ABS base provides a solid foundation and adds structural rigidity to the dispenser. The enhanced agitation and drive system provides consistent ice dispense and ease of serviceability.

Other features include a Surround View™ merchandiser with attractive “ice” graphic to draw customer attention and the patented Rocking Chute™ ice dispense reduces in-flight and ice spillage. Ice storage capabilities range from 150 lbs up to 250 lbs. The S-150, 200 and 250 ice dispensers can be used with a Multiplex remote refrigeration unit utilizing the beverage valve option.

In addition to the S-150, S-200 and S-250 water/ice dispensers, Servend manufactures a complete line of beverage dispensing equipment such as ice/beverage dispensers, drop-in beverage dispensers, and electric countertop units.
