Here is Flake Ice Machine 4 Tons Manufacturer talking about the principle of the ice machine commonly used in life.

An Flake Ice Machine is a refrigeration machinery that produces water by cooling water from a refrigeration system through an evaporator.

How the ice machine works?

The chilled water of the water storage tank is continuously circulated through the plate or the compartmental evaporator by the water pump; after the compressor is operated, the suction-compression-exhaust-condensation (liquefaction)-throttle--in the evaporator is -10 to - 18 degree low temperature evaporation endothermic vaporization, chilled water continuously condenses into ice layer on the surface of lower temperature evaporator at 0 degree water temperature, when the ice layer condenses to a certain thickness, the evaporation temperature of the refrigerant reaches temperature control After setting the temperature, the defrosting solenoid valve is often turned on and the heat pump is used to de-ice, and the next cycle is realized.

1. Ice making cycle:

By replenishing the water valve, the water automatically enters a water storage tank, and then the water is pumped through the flow control valve to the splitter head, where the water is evenly sprayed onto the surface of the ice maker, flowing through the ice maker like a water curtain On the wall, the water is cooled to the freezing point, and the water that has not been frozen by evaporation will flow into the reservoir through the porous tank and resume the cycle.

2. Ice picking cycle:

When the ice reaches the required thickness (the thickness can be arbitrarily selected by the operator/user), the hot gas discharged from the compressor is redirected back into the ice collector wall to replace the low temperature liquid refrigerant. This forms a film of water between the ice and the wall of the evaporation tube. This layer of water will act as a lubricant when the ice falls freely into the groove below by gravity. The water produced during the ice picking cycle will pass through the porous tank back into the water reservoir, which also prevents the wet ice from being discharged by the machine.

3. Refrigerator condensation:

It is realized by air-cooled, water-cooled or evaporative condenser. The evaporative type is installed above the ice machine, the water-cooled condenser is installed below the ice machine or below the refrigeration system, and the air-cooled condenser is installed with the ice machine according to the actual situation. It can also be installed outdoors. If desired, water-cooled condensers can be used on board or on the coast, using sea water for cooling. Evaporative cooling can be used at ambient air temperatures, but it is not suitable for use in water-cooled or air-cooled refrigeration in terms of efficiency and economy.
