I: Features of Block Ice Maker
1. Less freezing time
2. Less space
3. Less cost, civil work, equipment and workers
4. Easy Operation
5. Food grade
6. Energy saving economical in power and durable ice block
7. Designed for tropical climate and coastal area design.
8. The installation is simple, just connect the power and water
9. Temperature of ice block surface is below -8 °C, not easy to melt.
10. Small block size, easy to move and shipping
11. Convenient to clean and maintain the machine
12. Built-in electrical security protection
13. Low noise
14. The ice cans are made of food-grade alumium plate, never corrode, The parts contact with water are food grade too, are stainless steel or PVC. It is fully designed with food-grade standard.
Focusun research and develop the newest and high-tech direct refrigeration block ice machine (adopting aluminum alloy plate to freeze ice directly, there is no traditional brine tank or other auxiliary chemicals)
Comparing to traditional brine system block ice machine (with brine tank, with salt), direct refrigeration block ice machine has many advantages as follows:
1. Evaporator material: Direct refrigeration adopt aluminum alloy plate, brine system evaporator adopt stainless steel or galvanized plate material.
2. Main purpose: Direct refrigeration blocks ice used for human consumption, keep fresh, objects cooling. Brine system block ice can only be used for keep fresh, objects cooling.
3. Power consumption: Direct refrigeration block ice plant save electricity reaching 10% than brine system block ice plant.
4. Ice falling speed: Direct refrigeration block ice maker is 1.5times faster than brine system block ice maker, ice can fall off within 25-30 minutes.
5. Process of ice-doffing: Direct refrigeration only needs one person to operate, but brine system needs at least 3 people.
6. Maintenance: Direct refrigeration can used forever, corrosion resistant, low maintenance. Brine system needs more maintenance.
7. Cost: Direct refrigeration price is a little higher than brine system.
With regards to block ice weight, we can design our standard weight ( block ice size: L X W X H mm) or customized.
Advantages of block ice making machine:
Modular shape, featuring of plug-and-play ready system especially for tropical & costal environment design.
Comparing to other types of ice, large block ice is very easy in storage, handling and transport.
Block has the longest storage period comparing to other ice types.
Machine dimension is designed strictly according to international standard size for the container, which is convenient for transportation.
If customers don't have an existing site to place the ice block machine, he or she can choose the block ice machine to be installed in a 20ft or 40ft container, for direct refrigeration block ice maker:
1) The smallest capacity containerized we make ice 6ton/day which in a 20' container.
2) The biggest capacity containerized we make is 18ton/day which in a 40' container.
For containerized block ice machine, it is very easy for transportation and installation, if you don't have suitable place to put the machine, we then recommend you containerized one, because you don't need to re-build a room again.

Direct refrigeration block ice machine
In order to fulfill the demands of ice for human consumption or the food grade ice, Focusun™ has been practicing in the direct refrigeration technology for years.
Differed from the brine refrigeration, the direct refrigeration block ice machine is producing ice blocks in the aluminium evaporator. The material of aluminium is requirements in many countries. In addition to its hygienic advantage, the expectancy of usage can be extended due to its property of rust resistance.
Focusun™ has also developed a reliable ice distributing system. With high degree customizability, we offer multiple solutions to clients with diverse needs.
Pneumatic crawler conveying system, maximizing the protection to the ice blocks during harvesting.
Aerospace technology level special aluminium, outstanding durability, totally compliant with the food hygienic standards.
Bitzer compressor offers abundant compressing power and guarantees producing ice in the shortest period with the least energy consumption.
Proven performance secured by world top brands, Siemens, Schneider, Danfoss…etc.
Module design, the whole set consists of machine unit module, evaporator module, and cooling tower module; easy to ship and install; evaporator module can contain several parts in terms of capacity.
