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 and feeding a cart below.

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.


Configuration Options


Upgrade to stainless cabinet
When the machine is to be installed in a hygienic production environment. Frame and panels can be upgraded to stainless steel.


Longer legs: To raise the machine to make it easier to clean underneath and to bring the ice outlet to a height suitable for discharging ice into an ice box or cart placed alongside the machine where the standard ice discharge height of 1140mm would not be high enough.

Usually paired with an L type ice discharge (see ice discharge 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.


Ice maker only: For installation with a customer’s own refrigeration unit or central refrigeration system


Stacked configuration
Refrigeration and controls below ice maker to make a taller unit. Useful when a reduced footprint or higher ice discharge is required.

Often used when the machine is to be part of an automatic system with the AS500 mini ice silo or SIB-F Freshwater StreamIce® tank


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 sterilisation

Sterilisation 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.


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


Ancillary Items

Smartcart 240
80kg capacity insulated ice cart, moulded from food safe polymer for maximum hygiene. With removeable lid.

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.

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
