Choose an ice discharge to suit your application


Ice discharge type L

Ice discharge by flexible hose, level control by reflection sensor. Usually used in conjunction with wall brackets or support frame.

Standard option for this model, the flexible tube can be used to fill ice carts and can be pushed through a wall. In order to avoid blockage it is advisable to maintain a minimum 22° fall from horizontal.

State dimension X when ordering.


Ice discharge type K

Ice discharge by rigid vertical pipe, level control by light barrier in the top of the pipe. Usually used when machine is sat directly on top of an ice store.

No cost option for this model, the rigid pipe drops vertically down to discharge ice below the machine position. 

State dimension Y when ordering.


Mounting Options


Wall mounting brackets

A pair of stainless mounting brackets to mount either the ice machine or a remote condenser on a wall. Allows the machine to be mounted at a convenient height for filling ice carts/bins.

Stainless steel, manually ground.


Stainless support frame

A frame to raise the ice machine to a more convenient working height, useful when the machine is to be floor standing. 90cm and 110cm with drain available.

Stainless steel, glass beaded.

The picture shows the 110cm model with ice cart, not included. 


Configuration Options


Condenser options

Water cooled instead of air-cooled:  where air-cooling is not possible.Useful in applications where the machine must be installed into an area with poor ventilation where a remote aircooled condenser is not possible.

Remote condenser option: The condenser supplied separately to the machine for remote mounting, typically outside, when the machine is to be located in areas that poorly ventilated or have airbourne contamination such as flour dust. Available as standard for indoor mounting, weatherproof for outside mounting and cu/cu saltwater resistant for mounting in areas close to the sea.

Low noise condenser: Only for remote installation. Use when the condenser will be going in an area sensitive to noise, such as residential.



The machine equipped to deal with intermittent temperatures below 5°C, only available in conjunction with remote condenser option above.


Cold installation pack

Extra insulation and heater for installation in a coldroom below 5degC. Only available in conjuntion with remote condenser option above.


CoolNat Ice maker only 

For connection to a central CO2 refrigeration system


Additional Hygiene Options


Hygiene +: Auto water drain

The water tank automatically drains when the machine is switched off, preventing water stagnation during periods of infrequent use.


Hygiene +: Automatic flushing inc. drain

Auto flushing of system with water, includes auto water drain. Details on request.


Hygiene +: UV sterilization

sterilization of the incoming water supply by mean of UV filter, all incoming water is passed through a powerful UV field on its way into the machine which kill almost all biohazards in the water supply. Slows down proliferation of water-borne bacteria inside the machine during operation.


Sanitiser solution: 5litre tub part # ZUK9700044
Ziegra ice machine sanitiser is an anti-bacterial product designed for both regular preventative use and intensive cleaning operations.


Spare filter cartridges

Set of replacement cartridges for the Ziegra triple kit, requires change every 6 months.

Insulated ice storage boxes

Double walled polyethylene containers with expanded foam insulated core. Made from food grade virgin USDA/FDA/EU approved polyethylene. PU filled and UV stable, strong and durable stackable design for space saving.


7 day timer

Allows programming of the machine to make ice at specific times of the day or night.


Remote operating switch

A separate operating switch for machines that are to be installed in areas that are not to easy to access such as on top of coldrooms or in roofspaces


GRP plantroom

A standalone GRP plantroom to protect the ice machine from the elements and thieves when the machine must be mounted outdoors. Arrives fully assembled, needs only a suitable base to bolt it down to. Only available with remote condener option above.


Poly ice shovel

One piece moulded ice shovel in white for the hygienic and rapid removal of ice from boxes, bunkers and bins.
