ZIEGRA Block Ice Plant
All parts in contact with brine or water are of stainless steel, galvanized or effectively anti-corrosion treated. The brine-bath is fully insulated and covered by removable panels.
The ice-cans are of stainless-steel, their thick sides (1,5 mm) withstand even rough handling. The Ice is harvested with the aid of an electric overhead crane with push button control. Strong heating elements in the thawing bath ensure that the blocks detach quickly from the cans. The blocks then slide smoothly through an aperture into the ice storage room.
Simultaneous refilling of a frame with eight cans ensures equal filling height of the cans.
The freezing cycle takes about 8 hours, corresponding to three continuous harvests per day, the basis of the indicated daily capacity.
- Built from panels with 120 mm PUR insulation, internal surface stainless steel.
- Walls and floor are watertight jointed.
- Lighting and drains for melt-and cleaning water are included.
- Ice delivery through a removable hatch.
Ice blocks, standard sizes are:
- 12,5 kg = 15 x 13 x 70 cm
- 20 kg = 25 x 13 x 70 cm
- 25 kg = 30 x 13 x 70 cm
These blocks allow easy handling, they are neither too long, nor too heavy.
Other sizes/weights on request.
