What Is Flake Ice
Flake ice, also calls scale ice or granule ice, is a type of ice that directly made from fresh water or seawater at -7 Celsius degree, with shape of thin flat flake (ice scales, ice chips). The flake ice is mainly used in the commercial fresh maintenance, pelagic fishing and concrete cooling industries.
Why Flake Ice
- Directly formed at low temperatures, ice at -7 Celsius degree.
- Ice flakes are dry, clean, sanitary and convenient for use.
- Relatively big contact area and good mobility ensure fast cooling effect.
- The flake ice machine is small in dimension, light weight and convenient for use anytime and anywhere.
Product Range & Application
The commercial range flake ice machines produces ice between 500 and 5000 kgs/24 hours. You can find this machine in supermarkets, butcher factories, meat stores, fish shops, kitchen as well as some cold storage industry.
How Flake Ice Machine Works
As shown, ice blade, water spray pan, principle axis and water receiver pan are driven by reducer and run slowly counterclockwise. The water flows into water distribution pan from the water inlet, and then sprinkles over on the ice freezing surface evenly through water distribution tubes, becoming water film.
The water is fed into flake ice generator (ice evaporator), from which the heat exchange happens and water is evaporated into ice. The flake ice evaporator/generator is in shape of a cylinder drum. Water is first introduced into water distribution tray that on top of the ice cylinder, from which water is distributed by distribution tubes to inner wall of cylinder drum. The water distribution tubes and ice scraper blade are fixed to a rotating principle axis. When the principle axis is driven by motor reducer, the water distribution tubes and ice scraper are in movement of rotation around ice drum.
The ice generator drum has a structure of two sides walls, with an empty middle channels, in which the refrigerant is circulating. When water is sprayed onto the inside wall of the ice evaporator drum, a water film is formed.
Water film has heat exchange with refrigerant in the refrigerant channel and its temperature quickly decreases till forming a layer of thin ice in ice freezing surface. Under the extrusion of ice scraper, the thin ice layer turns into ice flake and then falls down by gravity.
