Hopper Icedoser

  • Accurate automatic ice dosing
  • Uniform coverage at 10 doses per minute
  • Reduced ice usage lowers transportation costs
  • Works with multiple box types simultaneously


The Marel Hopper Icedoser is an innovative machine for dispensing the exact quantity of ice into fresh-fish boxes, ensuring that coverage is uniform and excess weight kept to an absolute minimum. This precision greatly reduces transportation costs, particularly when air freight is involved.

Boxes with product are labeled with box weight and shipping information prior to ice dosing. An optical scanner reads ice dosing information on each box as it enters the Hopper Icedoser, which prepares the correct dosing according to the information on the label.

The quantity of ice in the container is monitored by a sensor which automatically transmits a request for more ice when the supply has dropped below a predetermined level. This ensures that a ready supply is always available, keeping the system’s capacity at a rapid 10 doses per minute.


Three Icedoser models are available, to accommodate various ice container heights and volumes:

  • 400 l Ice dosing station
  • 540 l Ice dosing station
  • 720 l Ice dosing station
