550kg Flake Ice Machine with 200kg Elevated Bin and Cart

The Ziegra ZBE 550-BK200 makes up to 550kg of flaked ice into a 200kg capacity elevated bin ready for use and features an 80kg capacity ice cart docked below the bin. The cart is filled by gravity by pulling a lever just above the cart, thus eliminating shovelling of ice from the bin.

ZBE 550 main features

  • Automatic operation: Ice level control system included as standard
  • Granular flake ice made at optimum temperature of -0.5°C.
  • Three sizes of ice flake available: micro, midi or macro.
  • 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

BK200 main features

  • First ice in, first ice out bin design reduces risk of stale ice
  • One piece rotomoulded construction of carts for easy cleaning
  • Cart drain docking system built into the bin support frame
  • Gravity unloading of bin, reduces manual handling of the ice
  • Durable polyethylene lift door with no sharp corners
  • Powerhinge makes door easy to open and close one handed
  • Poly lined bin interior for easy cleaning and chlorine resistance
  • Non CFC insulation in bin

Configuration Options


Drain Pump

Pumps the drain water into the site drain if it is too high or far away for gravity drainage. Supplied with a 2 metre flex, it can be directly wired into a fused spur or a plug fitted (not supplied) and plugged into a standard 3 pin socket. Mount on the floor underneath the machine. Not suitable for dusty environments.


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.


Frostguard: The machine equipped to deal with intermittent temperatures below 5°C, only available in conjunction 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 that comes as standard with this machine, The fine and coarse cartridges require change every 6 months, the anti-scale when it runs low. Order part ZUK9700031KIT.

Set consists of :

1 x ZUK9700033 - Coarse filter

1 x ZUK9700032 - Anti-scale filter

1 x ZUK9700031 - Fine filter.


Ancillary Items


Additional BR 80 insulated ice cart

80kg capacity insulated ice cart, moulded from food safe polymer for maximum hygiene. With removeable lid. Gives one bin to fill while another is being used.


7 day timer

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

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.
