*according to site conditions. Air temperature, water temperature, water chemistry, air contamination and installation parameters can all effect ice output.
**theoretical capacity based on volume, in practice this will be less due to pyramiding and voids in the ice.

Configuration Options


Drain pump:

For applications where there is no floor level drain available. Ziegra recommend either a floor level drain or a support frame are used, but if neither of those are possible this is a lower cost option.


Water cooled condenser

where air-cooling is not possible
Consumption cooling water: 50 litre per hour

E: water supply (ice production)
F: water discharge (eg auto water drain)
O: cooling water in
P: cooling water return or drainage, resp.


Mounting Options


Stainless steel support

Stainless steel support  to raise the machine by 40cm, for applications where there is no floor level drain available and the customer does not want to rely on a drain pump.

Also useful if this model is not to be used on a bench to raise it to a more ergonomic height.


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.
