[Fresh people must know] How to choose a suitable type of ice maker?


   Summer is here, and no supermarket that sells fresh food can leave the ice machine (in fact, it can be used all year round including winter). What types of ice machines are there? The ice maker Gu Siyi is a machine for making ice cubes, but ice cubes are divided into flake ice, block ice, tube ice, and granular ice. According to the shape of the ice cubes produced by the ice making mechanism, it can be divided into: flake ice machine, block ice machine, tube ice machine, pellet ice machine, snow machine, plate ice machine, and the newly developed ball ice machine.

  The ice maker adopts a refrigeration system, takes water as the carrier, and passes through a certain device under power to produce Equipment for ice. To put it simply, it is a machine that turns liquid water into solid ice. Depending on the principle of the evaporator and the production method, the shape of the ice cubes produced is also different. The role of ice is divided into three types: one is for cooling, the other is for food, and the third is for artificial scenes for viewing. According to different places of use, it can be divided into: edible ice maker, commercial cbfi ice machine, and industrial ice maker Ice machine.   According to different condensation methods, it can be divided into: air-cooled ice maker and water-cooled ice maker. 1. The flake ice machine is irregular scaly crushed ice with a thickness of 1.5-2.2mm, and the ice temperature is about -5 degrees. The flake ice has a dry texture, is not easy to agglomerate, has good fluidity, has a large contact area with fresh-keeping products, and has a cooling speed. Fast, effective and rapid, suitable for industrial processing and transportation and cooling of perishable items. It is widely used in the display of aquatic meat products in the fresh food counters of supermarkets, buffets, hot pot restaurants and hotels, aquatic product processing, food processing, poultry meat processing, vegetable distribution and preservation, fishery fishing, concrete mixing and cooling, chemical dye cooling, Pharmaceutical industry, artificial snowmaking, etc.  2. The ice cube produced by the block ice machine is the ice machine with the largest size among the ice cube types. According to the type of evaporator, it can be divided into direct cooling block ice machine and brine pool block ice machine. Block ice has a small contact area with the outside world and is not easy to melt. It can be crushed into various shapes of ice according to the requirements of different industries. Application fields: ice factories in ports and wharves, food processing, long-distance transportation of vegetables, fruits and aquatic products preservation and cooling, aquatic products, food preservation, cooling in special fields, and ice sculpture viewing. Ice cubes can be divided into transparent ice cubes and milky white ice cubes. Add some paint to make colorful ice cubes.  3. The tube ice machine is named after its hollow tube shape. Tube ice: It is a relatively regular hollow cylindrical shape, the outer diameter is divided into three specifications of ø21, ø28, and ø34mm, and the height ranges from 25 to 42mm. The diameter of the inner hole in the middle can be adjusted according to the time of ice making, generally within ø5 to 10mm. between.  Features: The ice cubes are thick, transparent, beautiful, have a long storage period, are not easy to melt, and have good air permeability.  Applicable: daily food, vegetable preservation, fishery and aquatic products preservation, etc.  4. According to the ice making method, the pellet ice maker is divided into spray type, flowing water type and immersion type. Mainly for food, the granular ice machines are found in milk tea shops, hotels, bars, KTVs, western restaurants, food factories, convenience stores and cold drinks shops, etc., to meet every customer who needs granular ice. The granular ice produced by the granular ice mechanism is crystal clear, clean and hygienic; the machine is efficient, safe, energy-saving, durable and environmentally friendly, and easy to install, so it is the first choice for customers to eat. 5. The ice of the snowflake ice maker is relatively moist, with water content generally between 15% and 25%, and the temperature is slightly below zero. It has good plasticity and is easy to take and accumulate. The shape of the ice made is small and irregular snowflakes. Shaped crushed ice can penetrate into a narrow gap, has a fast cooling speed, and has a good ice bath effect. It is specially designed for laboratories and is especially suitable for use in laboratories such as food and life sciences, medicine, agriculture, forestry, animal husbandry and fishery, inspection and quarantine.   It can be said that the above 5 ice machines are all related to the supermarket fresh food. From the actual shop inspections, there are almost no supermarkets that can choose to purchase and use the norms correctly.
