Basic knowledge of practical ice maker and its operation and purchase


  Practical basic knowledge of ice maker and its operation, purchase

   This article will briefly introduce the basic knowledge of cbfi ice machine, if the ice maker is better operated, and how to purchase it according to your needs. Speaking of the ice machine, I hope it will be useful to you!

Introduction to the basic knowledge of    ice maker:

  1. Concept: ice maker is a refrigeration system that passes water through an evaporator A refrigeration mechanical equipment that produces ice after the refrigerant is cooled. According to the different principles of the evaporator and the production process, the shape of the ice produced is also different. People generally divide ice machines into pellet ice machines, flake ice machines, plate ice machines, tube ice machines, shell ice machines, etc. according to the ice shape. . The role of ice: The role of ice is divided into three types: one is cooling, the other is food, and the third is artificial scenes for viewing.

  2. The working principle of the ice maker:

  1) The chilled water pump in the water storage tank continuously circulates through the plate or compartment evaporator;

  2) After the compressor is running, it is sucked-compressed-discharged-condensed (liquefied)-throttling-and then evaporated in the evaporator at a low temperature of -10 to -18 degrees. The chilled water is at a water temperature of 0 degrees. The medium constantly condenses into an ice layer on the surface of the lower temperature evaporator. When the ice layer has condensed to a certain thickness, after the evaporation temperature of the refrigerant reaches the set temperature of the temperature control, the defrost solenoid valve is turned on, and a heat pump is often used. Form deicing. Realize the next cycle.

  3) Ice making cycle: through the water replenishment valve, the water automatically enters a water storage tank, and then the water is pumped to the shunt head through the flow control valve, where the water is evenly sprayed to the ice making On the surface of the device, it flows through the wall of the cbfi ice machine like a curtain of water, the water is cooled to the freezing point, and the water that has not been evaporated and frozen will flow into the water storage tank through the porous tank, and the cycle will restart.

  4) Ice picking cycle: When the ice reaches the required thickness (the thickness can be arbitrarily selected by the operator/user), the hot air discharged from the compressor is re-introduced into the wall of the ice maker to replace the low-temperature liquid The refrigerant. In this way, a thin film of water is formed between the ice and the wall of the evaporation tube. This water film will play a role in lubricating when the ice falls freely into the groove below by gravity. The water produced during the ice-picking cycle will return to the water storage tank through the porous tank, which also prevents the wet ice from being discharged by the machine.

  5) Refrigerator condensation: It can be realized with air-cooled, water-cooled or evaporative condenser. The evaporative type is installed higher than the ice machine, the water-cooled condenser is installed under the ice machine or under the refrigeration system, and the air-cooled condenser is installed in the ice machine according to the actual situation. It can also be installed outdoors. If necessary, water-cooled condensers can be used on ships or on the coast, using sea water for cooling. Evaporative cooling can be used when the ambient air temperature is relatively high, but from the perspective of efficiency and economy, it is not suitable for water-cooled or air-cooled refrigeration.

  3. Brand introduction: Ferguson FOCUSUN of Germany, Manitowoc of Manitowoc of the United States, Scotsman of the United States, EOMatic of the United States, EOMatic of the United States, and Xingqi ice machine of Japan are currently the world's mainstream ice machine manufacturers, occupying the largest in the world Ferguson is famous for inventing the world’s first tube ice machine (granular). Wanliduo’s ice machine, which specializes in cube ice, has a large share in the United States, which is relatively developed in fast food countries, and scotsman has an absolute share in Europe. Domination, IEOMATIC is more popular in the Middle East, the United States and many countries in Asia, and Xingqi's position in Japan is unshakable. This is estimated to be related to Japan's national complex! Scotsman is a kingdom that specializes in the entire series of ice. There are more than 200 models of ice machines including series, MC series, MV series, AF series, MF series, BF series, TDE series, CME series, MAR series AISAS, etc. The daily ice production is from 10 kg to 10,000 kg. The shapes of ice cubes are round, cube, half cube, alien, scaly, ore cube, and snowflake ice. The condenser of the German Ferguson FOCUSUN cbfi ice machine can adopt air-cooled, water-cooled and evaporative-cooled condensation.

  4. Application: Widely used in hotels, restaurants, fast food restaurants, karaoke dance halls, cafes, supermarkets, fisheries, food processing, medical treatment, households and other various consumer places.
