350kg flake ice machine - no storage

The Ziegra ZBE 350 ice machine makes up to 350kg per 24 hours of flake ice in one of two sizes. The machine is easy to install requiring only positioning and connection to utilities. The standard machine is pre-commissioned in the factory and shipped ready to run.

There are three models to choose from; 
ZBE 350 CoolNat with a natural refrigerant for standard applications.
ZBE 350 with R452a refrigerant for applications and environments where more flexibility is required.
ZBE 350W with a water cooled condenser (mainly used for sauna applications)

ZBE 350 main features

  • Ice level control system included as standard
  • Granular flake ice made at optimum temperature of -0.5°C.
  • Two sizes of ice flake available: micro and midi, to suit a wide range of applications
  • Hygienic design with a sealed water system
  • External water filtration system supplied as standard
  • Designed for continuous operation 24/7
  • Stainless steel construction
  • No moving parts in refrigeration circuit lowers risk of gas leaks
  • Environmentally friendly natural refrigerant

The machine can be mounted on wall brackets, support frame or sat on your own storage/cold-room, with a number of ice discharge options to suit your application.

Choose an ice discharge to suit your application


Ice discharge type A:

This is the standard no cost option for our small machines. OK in ambient environments that never drop below 5°C. A 60mm tube feeds ice from the back of the machine and senses the level of the ice by temperature probe.


Ice discharge type B:

Especially suited when machine is directly sat on top of an ice storage bin.

Ice discharges through bottom of machine via rigid 110mm Ø pipe. An ice jam switch in the top of the tube stops the machine when the bin is full.


Ice discharge type L:

When a flexible hose is needed but the ice hose will be fed through a wall into a refrigerated atmosphere.

Ice discharges through the back of machine via a 60mm Ø flexible hose. A reflection sensor located at the end of the hose will stop the machine when the receptacle is full.


Ice discharge type D:

Ice discharges through the bottom of the machine via 54mm Ø flexible hose, 75mm Ø insulated. Level control via light barrier built into the hose.

A reflection sensor and / or 88.9mm Ø x 600mm stainless long end tube can be added as additional options. Designed for sauna applications when discharging through a wall into an adjacent room with ice receptacle.


Ice discharge type F:

Ice discharges through the bottom of the machine via via 54mm Ø flexible hose, 75mm Ø insulated. Level control by externally mounted reflection sensor.

An 88.9mm Ø x 600mm stainless long end tube can be added as additional option. Designed for sauna applications when discharging through a ceiling into a room below with ice receptacle.


Ice discharge type G:

Ice discharges through the back of the machine via 54mm Ø flexible hose, 75mm Ø. Level control via externally mounted reflection sensor.

An 88.9mm Ø x 600mm stainless long end tube can be added as additional option. Designed for sauna applications when discharging through a ceiling into a room below when the machine cannot be placed directly above the ice receptacle.


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 below or discharge through a wall into another room depending on the ice discharge option chosen above.


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. The machine can discharge into bins below or discharge through a wall, depending on the ice discharge option chosen above.

The picture shows the optional B type ice discharge and 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. Requires change to R452a

Water connections: 1/2" Male
Water flow: 160 l/h
Heat emission: 2.6kW

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. Requires change to R452a

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 with a small heater to deal with intermittent temperatures below 5ºC, only available in conjuction with remote condenser option above.


Frostguard, insulation, heating cable

When machine is to be installed in a cold storage room. Available only in conjuction 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

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 cartridge: #ZUK9700040

Standard replacement cartridge for the Ziegra single kit, requires change every 6 months.


Ancillary items


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


Smartcart 240: 

80kg capacity insulated ice cart, moulded from food safe polymer for maximum hygiene. With removeable lid. Ideal when the ice machine and bin must be located away from the point where the ice will be used.
