|TUBE ICE MACHINE
||FLAKE ICE MACHINE
|Direct refrigeration through heat transfer tubes resulting in less energy consumption.
||Continuous operation of flaker motor across the freezing plate, resulting in high electricity consumption.
|No moving parts in ice maker and only one cutter assembly provided for ice sizing.
||Flake ice maker.
|Has in-built chilling system and does not require any external chilling plant further reducing electricity consumption.
||Needs chilled water feed during peak temperature conditions for tropical climates.
|Can be conveyed through inexpensive screw conveyor or gravity.
||Flake ice is sensitive to minute temperature changes and tends to lump in storages.
|Uniform size of 1″ diameter, hence reduces meltage and zero lump formation.
||Flake ice damages certain products due to its sharp edges.
|Consistent output, throughout working life of plant.
||Over time, output capacity reduces and deliver less then rated capacity.
