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.

As shown above, first fully feed the ice bucket with water, press the button and start the refrigeration system. The agitator makes the water flow cyclically which will have a heat transfer with the refrigerant inside the Ti evaporative coils and then the temperature is lowered. Then the low temperature brine water has a heat transfer with the water inside the ice bucket which will be lowered to 0ºC below. After a certain ice making time, the water in the ice bucket all becomes ice when the ice thawing system is beginning to run. The crane will hoist a row of buckets down into the ice thaw tank full of running warm water. So the bucket temperature will be rising when the ice surface thaws and gets separated from ice bucket. Then ice buckets will be hoisted to the ice can dump. Fix buckets and then rotate dump upside down and ice is dropped down. Put up the buckets and refill water to a certain level using water feeding gadget, then the crane will hoist the buckets back to the brine water tank and hoist another row of ice buckets in the brine water tank. Thaw ice, drop ice and add water cyclically.
Ti pipe is used as evaporative coil to improve the heat transfer effect, and its stainlessness, anti-corrosion can guarantee the long service time.
The stainless PE parts between the brine and the fresh water is proper to mode and weld. And it works very well in a cold condition.
the particular design of ice thawing tank and ice dumping unit bring easier operation.
The thawing tank is heated by hot gas discharged from the compressor so that it is more energy saving and suitable for low water temperature area.
Modular and integrated design ensures it is easy to ship, move and install on the spot.
Every brine refrigeration block ice machine can be customized according to our clients' requirements.
The brine refrigeration block ice machine can be containerized: 6 T/day ice production in a 20' container and 12.5T/day ice production in a 40' container.
