Commercial Ice Maker Machines

Would you like to have a general idea on how a commercial ice maker machine works?

Commercial ice maker machines make great improvements to the quality of ice by utilizing moving water. The water is run down a surface that is constantly at 32 degrees F since only water without impurities will freeze at this temperature on a surface. Water with impurities requires lower temperatures to freeze and will continue to wash down the surface and through the drain of a commercial ice machine. Air and undissolved solids will be washed away to such an extent that in horizontal evaporator machines the water has 98% of the solids removed to ensue very hard virtually pure, clear ice. In vertical evaporators the ice is softer, more so if there are actual individual cube cells. Commercial ice machines can produce different sizes and shapes of ice like flake, nugget, crushed, cube, tube, accordingly commercial ice maker machines are categorized as flake ice maker machines, cube ice machines, tube ice machines, block ice machines , plate ice machines and ice crushed machines etc..

When the sheet of ice on the cold surface reaches the desired thickness, the sheet is slid down onto a grid of wires, where the sheet’s weight causes it to be cut into the desired shapes, after which it falls into a storage bin.
