How to choose an ice machine for supermarkets

Supermarket ice machines are generally used for fresh-keeping seafood, aquatic products, and poultry. Generally, flake ice machines and block ice machines are more suitable. Supermarket ice machine output selection method: a counter uses about 120-150 kg of ice a day, and then uses the counter's number X the day's ice consumption, and you probably know how much ice machine you need to choose.

1. Advantages and disadvantages of direct cooling block ice machine

Block ice machines are more expensive, twice as expensive as flake ice machines. The ice cubes produced by the block ice machines cannot be used directly. The ice cubes must be broken by an ice crusher to spread them on the supermarket ice table. Keep refrigerated. The advantage of block ice is that it is not easy to melt, the disadvantage is that it is expensive, and it occupies a large area, so it is not recommended.

Two, the preferred points of flake ice machine

The flake ice machine does not require crushed ice, and the produced ice flakes can be used directly. The flake ice machine is more energy-saving and energy-saving, and it occupies a small area. The volume is only 1/3 of the block ice machine. It is the first choice for small and medium-sized supermarkets. However, flake ice is easier to melt than block ice, so supermarkets choose ice machines as much as possible to choose larger ice machines to supplement the melted ice flakes.

Three, the advantages and disadvantages of tube ice machine

Tube ice is hard and not easy to melt, transparent and beautiful, it is the perfect ice type for supermarkets to keep fresh. However, tube ice machines are more expensive, and currently few supermarkets choose tube ice machines.
