Ice Block Maker

The Minus40 Ice Block Maker with an option of 220V or 380V, have evolved for African operating conditions that is robust and reliable whilst being economical to run. The output is 28 ice blocks / batch of 10kgs or 56 blocks / batch of 5kg using the same 10ltr stainless steel ice form. The ice block machine can be specified in either 380volt, 3 phase electrical supply or 220volt, single phase supply. The 380volt machine will freeze water in 10 to 12 hours depending on ambient temperatures which will allow 2 batche sof ice every 24 hours. The equivalent 220volt ice maker will take 14 to 16 hours per batch of ice.

The freezing basin is made from stainless steel and uses a water / glycol mixture in the basin that is the water freezing agent, resulting in a far superior longevity to a typical corrosive salt brine freezing agent used in many competitor products.

To enable economical manufacturing, it is important to ensure that the refrigeration plant on the IBM is well ventilated (> 2000m3 / hour) and the ambient operating environment is kept as cool as possible. The IBM’s can also be specified with remotely located refrigeration units so that the cooling plant can be mounted externally to optimise air cooling (the client is responsible for arranging refrigerant gas charging during installation). The remote refrigeration unit is also supplied in 220volt (IBM220R) and 380volt (IBM380R) versions.

Minus40 will facilitate free operator training at our factory, ensuring operators effectively and reliably use the IBM.
