Ice machine for confined space

Published on September 12, 2018 at 12:00 PM

A fish wholesaler with limited space above their coldroom needed an ice machine to fit in this tight space. They chose a Ziegra ZBE 2.500 with remote weatherproof condenser as their best option.

They decided on the macro size of flake as they had previously used this type of ice successfully and they needed an ice that would not freeze together during extended storage in their coldroom at +4°C.

Granular Ice For Fish Processing

Published on August 20, 2018 at 03:41 PM

A Scottish fish processor needed their own reliable source of ice and had considered several ice machine manufacturers, but after asking around they decided to approach Ziegra.

We discussed various ice types, but in the end they decided on granular flake ice for its excellent storage characteristics and intrinsic hygiene. This type of ice comes in three sizes and they chose the midi size flake for its general performance and versatility.

Why Use Genuine Ziegra Parts

Published on July 27, 2018 at 09:08 AM


We have seen cases over the last few years where customers, with good intentions and in the interests of reducing costs, have purchased alternative parts, which on the surface look and are specified as being the same as genuine Ziegra parts.

As with most things, what you see on the surface is often misleading. There are many propriety components used by Ziegra but they are often a bespoke version of those parts, uniquely prepared to our specification

A large vegetable processor approached Ziegra to discuss automatic cooling solutions for their cook and chill line.

They had a large area at the other side of the factory that would serve as a plant room, but needed a fast, efficient and labour saving way of getting the ice from there to the various points it was needed in the cook and chill area.

Thanks to Alex Pino of Alpino Services for sending in these pictures of their newest installation aboard the boat 'Our David George'.


Alpino installed the SWE 1.250TW on board ice machine in the cold room along with one of his stainless steel hold cooling systems.

The machine was supplied pre-configured to make one tonne per day of saltwater ice from seawater but can be re-configured at any time to make 1.2 tonnes of freshwater ice should that be necessary by simply changing the ice discharge adapater and pulley (supplied).

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.
