This week we were in Whitby at Parkol Marine, to commission "Karen of Ladram's" Ziegra SWE.2.500TW ice machine which will produce 2t of sea water ice per 24hrs. After an initial visit to the yard last week to liaise with the vessels owner/skipper and the manager/engineers of Parkol, we all agreed on the positioning of the machine and service supplies to it.'

Ziegra Working For Future Generations

We at Ziegra recognise that we all have a part to play in making good decisions that are in line with market demands but also protect the interests of future generations. As part of our company's Coolnat program, we have developed a range of CO2 ice machines.

Hygiene was of paramount importance to this customer, so the machine was upgraded to stainless steel frame and panels for easy cleaning and the legs were extended to facilitate cleaning underneath. This in addition to the intrinically hygienic design of Ziegra granular flake ice machines and the Ziegra Triple water filtration system which is fitted as standard.

One of our service agents, Alex Pino of Alpino Services in Cornwall kindly sent us these pictures of an installation carried out on board the Ocean Spirit last year.

Alex said:

"The Ziegra SWE1.500TW was the choice of machine for our customer and suited his fishing/ice requirements perfectly. This machine was always going to be a tight fit and some major fabrication was required, which included various items of bilge pump pipework which exited thru the hold hatch!"

A harbour in Cornwall was struggling with unreliable ice making equipment which was costing a lot of money annually in running costs and repairs. They wished to keep their existing insulated, unrefrigerated storage, so any new equipment would need to fit in the space available in the roofspace above and also through the existing access hatch.

A bakery in Wales needed a controllable method of cooling their dough and after doing their research decided that a hygienic Ziegra granular flake ice machine would be the way to go.

After consultation a Ziegra ZBE 1.200 was chosen and it was decided to wall mount the unit as they did not need storage and wall mounting would keep valuable floor space free.

Selecting an ice machine

How much ice per day?

The first question to answer when selecting an ice machine is how much ice will you need per day.

Ziegra have packaged machines from 30kg per day up to 10,000kg and even larger split systems so we will need to narrow this down a bit.
