The image on the left shows a typical arrangement for these systems, with an ice machine(s) on a mezzanine or floor above producing ice and feeding it by gravity in a large silo below. The silo then discharges ice on demand on to a bespoke conveyor system to feed a demand such as a production process, reactor or fishing vessel.
Silos are available from 3 tonnes up to 15 tonnes capacity and due to their first ice in, first ice out principle of operation they are more hygienic than alternative methods.
When paired with our intrinsically hygienic granular flake ice machines, this makes for a very hygienic core system, to which you could add further hygiene options such as UV filters and our dedicated automatic 'R+D' clean and disinfection systems.
For those customers not so concerned with ice hygiene we can also supply scale ice machines instead, although these will require the silo to be refrigerated to below -5°C
