Automatic Block Ice Maker
Our automatic block ice maker applies the advanced automatic ice making technology. Refrigerant will directly get into the evaporator for the heat exchange with water. Once water is frozen, the reverse heating of cooling system will let the hot fluorine get into the evaporator, so that speed ice unloading can be realized.
Block ice made by the direct cooling type machine is clean and sanitary, so it is edible. This fully automatic block ice machine is made with aluminum alloy of high heat transfer efficiency. That is why it saves at least 30% electricity as compared to the traditional salt water ice maker. In addition, it occupies less area, which means it needs less cost. In a word, our machine is cost-effective.
Features 1. Custom Made
We can design the automatic block ice maker based on the client's requirement.
a. Block Ice Size: The machine can be made to produce block ices that you desire.
b. Machine Parts:
Standard configuration: Siemens, Schneider, LS, Danfoss, Emerson, Bitzer, or other well-known brand parts. We can choose parts according to the client's needs.
c. Refrigerant: R22/R404A/R717. You can choose the refrigerant according to your own requirements.
d. Cooling Methods: Air cooling / water cooling / evaporative cooling. Evaporative cooling is recommended for R717.
e. Installation and Debugging: We will send our technical personnel to guide the on-site installation and give the relevant technical training.
2. Energy Efficient
Through the thermostatic expansion valve of the automatic block ice machine, refrigerant will directly get into the evaporator for heat exchange. Compared with the salt water indirect refrigeration, it doesn't have the low-temperature water circulation pump. Therefore, our machine is more energy-saving and has higher evaporation efficiency.
3. Clean and Sanitary
Block ices manufactured by this machine are edible.
4. Rapid Ice Making
Such raw material as aluminum alloy has greatly increased heat exchange efficiency, for which the freezing time is shortened. Meanwhile, hot fluorine is used for automatic ice unloading, thus saving the deicing time and speeding up ice making.
5. Convenient Transportation
This automatic block ice maker of compact structure occupies less area. It can be designed within a container, for the purpose of convenient transportation and installation.
