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.

         
   

Ice discharge type R

Ice discharge by rigid vertical pipe, level control by light barrier in the bottom of the pipe. Usually used when machine is filling an ice cart.

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

State dimension Y when ordering.

   

Ice discharge type S: 

Ice discharge by rigid vertical pipe, level control by light barrier in the bottom of the pipe. Usually used when machine is discharging ice through a wall.

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

State dimensions X + 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. 

Casing for ice discharge:

A stainless casing for the ice discharge to hide the ice pipe. Recommended when the machine is to go into food production areas

   

Ice storage bin

A range of insulated ice bins in various capacities and designs

Configuration Options

   
   

Frostguard: 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, heated cable and heater for installation in a coldroom below 5degC.

   
   

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. water 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.
