What Are the Advantages of a Flake Ice Machine in the Seafood Industry?

Dec. 08, 2020

The flake ice machine keeps seafood in an ideal moist state, which prevents seafood from spoiling and rotting, as well as preventing dehydration and frostbite. The melted ice water also rinses the surface of the seafood and removes bacteria and odors from the seafood, achieving the ideal preservation effect. Therefore, a large amount of ice is used in the process of fishing, storing, transporting, and processing marine fisheries. What are the advantages of the flake ice machine in the seafood industry? The following flake ice machine supplier and everyone to learn more about it!

 Flake Ice Machine

1.The flake ice machine has high ice efficiency and small cold loss. The flake ice machine adopts the latest type of vertical internal spiral knife cutting ice evaporator, when making ice, the water is evenly distributed by the water distribution device inside the ice bucket to the ice bucket wall for rapid icing, after the ice is formed, the ice is cut by the spiral ice knife and falls so that the evaporator surface is allowed to use, which improves the efficiency of the flake ice machine.

2.The flake-flake ice machine produces high quality, dry, non-bonded ice. The vertical evaporator of the automatic flake-flake ice machine produces irregular flake ice with a thickness of 1-2 millimeters, with good fluidity.

3.The structure of the machine is simple and covers a small area. The machine is available in freshwater, seawater, with its own cold source, user-assigned cold source, ice storage, and other series. The daily ice production capacity ranges from 500kg to 50 tons/24h and other specifications. Users can choose the appropriate model according to the occasion and water quality, and the machine has a small footprint and low operating costs compared to traditional flake ice machines.

What are the components of the flake ice machine?

The main condenser, compressor, evaporator, expansion valve, then what is their respective role?

1. Expansion valve

Installed between the liquid storage tank and evaporator, it is the cutoff point between the high-pressure area and low-pressure area in the system, and its function is to throttle the high-pressure liquid to the low-pressure liquid.

2. Condenser

In the refrigeration process, the condenser plays the role of heat output and condensing refrigerant, after the high-pressure superheated steam discharged from the refrigeration compressor enters the condenser, all the heat absorbed in the working process is transferred to the surrounding medium, including the heat absorbed from the evaporator and the refrigeration compressor and the pipeline high-pressure superheated steam condensing back to the liquid.

3. Evaporator

The evaporator of the flake ice machine is called an ice bucket, water enters the evaporator spray tube and evenly disperses the water on the inner wall of the evaporator to form a water film, the water film and the refrigerant in the channel of the evaporator exchange heat, the temperature drops rapidly, a thin layer of ice is formed on the inner wall of the evaporator, under the pressure of the ice blade, the film breaks into ice chips and falls into the ice reservoir.

4. Compressor

In the refrigeration system, it plays the role of compressing and conveying refrigerant gas, that is, the low-pressure and low-temperature gas produced in the evaporator is sucked back, then compressed into high-temperature and high-pressure gas, and sent into the condenser.
