For nearly 30 years Sentry Equipment has been a leading distributor of Electro Freeze® frozen dessert equipment. From top to bottom, we handle the sales, service, parts, and marketing for all equipment offered.  Electro Freeze has been in the frozen treat machine business since 1929.  Electro Freeze invented the pressurized frozen yogurt machine, and twist feature, and provide the simplest, most efficient machines on the market today.  No matter your product of choice – ice cream, frozen yogurt, gelato, Italian ice, shakes, frozen cocktails – or volume of business, there’s a model to match your business.  The Electro-Freeze Artic Swirl combined with the Wadden 24 Flavor System is another advancement in the soft serve industry, combining speed, flavors, and blend-ins.

In 1987, Michael Douglas’ character Gordon Gecko declared “Greed, for lack of a better word, is good” in the dramatic blockbuster Wall Street.  Who knew he was talking about ice cream?  You can now have your cake (ice cream!) and eat it too!!  Revive your stagnant menu with 24 flavors of soft serve, frozen yogurt, and shakes, all with blend-ins limited only by your imagination - all within an easy to use, small footprint. 


Mix in cookies, candies, and/or fruits with your soft-serve ice cream, frozen yogurt, or shake with the original flavor blender… The Arctic Swirl.  With a variable speed, high durability motor capable of mixing soft serve with candies in seconds, you’re sure to appease the masses…. And quickly.  The optional foot switch for hands free operation keeps the line moving and your store clean.  The easy to use Arctic Swirl can add a highly profitable product segment to an already successful  business.
