Tube ice machines freeze ice in the form of vertical (cylindrical) tubes that are hollow at the centre. The hole in the ice cube is formed during the formation of the ice as a result of water film falling and freezing inside the vertical tubes. An ice-cutting framework is usually used to give the desired length to these tube ice.
