What Are the Characteristics of the Flake Ice Machine?

Mar. 19, 2020

The flake ice machine is a kind of ice maker. The cost of the flake ice machine is low. The electricity consumption for producing 1 ton of ice is the least. It is the most widely used ice maker. Ice flakes are 1.0-2.5MM flakes, the shape of ice flakes is irregular, about 8 to 40 mm in diameter. Borneol has a large refrigeration capacity and can be fully mixed with refrigerated products. It is widely used in food processing, seafood, and aquatic products, meat and poultry slaughtering, commercial logistics, ocean fishing, and mud industry.

1. Energy-saving and low cost

The flake ice machine is a kind of ice maker. Compared with other ice machines, the biggest advantage of the flake ice machine is that it does not require thermal fluorine deicing, energy-saving and environmental protection, and low cost. It only takes about 70 kWh of electricity to produce a 1-ton flake ice machine. Our company provides a marine ice machine.

2. The large contact area of borneol and thorough mixing

Flake ice is thin, dry and loose white ice, with a thickness ranging from 1.0MM-2.5MM. The shape of the flake is irregular and the diameter is about 12MM-45MM. Flake ice has no sharp edges and corners, and will not hurt frozen objects. Due to the flat shape of the flake ice, it has a larger surface area than other ice of various shapes with the same weight. The larger the contact surface area, the better the cooling effect. For comparison, the minimum surface area of a ton of flake ice is 1600 square meters, and other types of ice such as tube ice and granular ice can only provide 400 to 1300 square meters, so the cooling efficiency of flake ice is higher than that of tube ice and granular ice. 2 to 5 times. It can enter the gap between the objects to be cooled, reduce heat exchange, maintain the temperature of ice, and have a good moisturizing effect. Flake ice has an excellent refrigeration effect and has the characteristics of large and rapid cooling capacity. Therefore, it is mainly used in various large-scale refrigeration facilities, food freezing, concrete cooling, and so on.

Due to the huge surface area of flake ice, its heat exchange process is rapid. Flake ice can quickly melt into water, take away heat, add humidity to the mixture, and is widely used in seafood and aquatic products to freeze and keep fresh, and to stir mud.

3. The flake ice machine is easy to install, simple to operate and highly automated.

The whole set of flake ice machine equipment is done by the flake ice machine manufacturer. Pull it to the customer's site to directly place the machine in a fixed position, and it can be used after receiving water and electricity. It only needs a one-click operation to open the ice mechanism, and the ice storage cabinet will automatically stop when it is full of ice. There is no need to watch manually, and the produced ice flakes can be used directly.
