15 Tonne Flake Ice Machine

Shannon Refrigeration supplied and installed a Snowkey industrial flake ice machine with a capacity of 15 Tonnes of ice production per day at an Auckland based food processing factory.

The Snowkey flake ice machine was configured in a split unit arrangement with the ice head installed on the production floor and the air-cooled condensing unit on the roof above.

Shannon Refrigeration installed and commissioned the flake ice machine to a short project schedule with no interruption to factory production.

The ice machine has lowered chilled water temperatures allowing for faster production and has performed faultlessly since commissioning.

Features include:

  • Compressor set with two Bitzer semi-hermetic reciprocating machines.
  • Greenhalgh air-cooled condenser.
  • Pre-wired ice machine control panel.
  • Weatherproof stainless steel enclosure to house the compressor set and control panel.
  • Flake ice head with access ladder, gearbox, water pump and remote control interface all installed on a galvanised frame.
  • High quality Danfoss line components.
