Tube Ice Machine How It Works

What is Tube ice

Tube ice is a more regular hollow cylindrical shape, the outer diameter is divided into four specifications of 22, 29, 32mm and 35mm, the height varies from 25 to 60mm, the diameter of the inner hole in the middle can be adjusted according to the time of ice making, generally between 5 and 15mm. The ice is thicker and transparent, beautiful, long storage period, not easy to melt, good permeability. For daily consumption, vegetable preservation, fishery boat aquatic products preservation, etc.


How Tube Ice Is Formed?

The ice part of the tube ice machine is an evaporator, and the evaporator is composed of many vertical parallel steel tubes. The deflector at the top of the evaporator sprinkles water evenly into each steel pipe in a spiral manner. The excess water is collected by the bottom water tank and pumped back to the evaporator by the water pump. There is refrigerant flowing in the outer space of the steel pipe and heat exchange with the water in the pipe, and the water in the shut is gradually cooled down into ice. When the thickness of the tube ice reaches the desired value, the water automatically stops flowing. The hot refrigerant gas will enter the evaporator to melt the tube ice and fall off. When the tube ice falls, the ice cutting mechanism operates to cut the tube ice into a set size.414309839

Classification and structure

Category One

Tube ice maker machine can be divided into small tube ice machines and large tube ice machines according to daily output. The daily ice output of the small tube ice machines ranges from 350kg to 8 tons, and most of them are of a single structure. The daily output of large-scale tube ice machines ranges from 10 tons to 80 tons, and most of them are composite structures and require cooling towers.

Category Two

Tube ice machines are divided into two categories: Freon tube ice machines and ammonia tube ice machines according to the refrigerant.Generally, the daily output of the ammonia tube ice machine can be 10-80 tons.In the long term, Freon tube ice machines are more economical than ammonia tube ice machines


The structure of the tube ice machine mainly includes the evaporator, condenser, water storage tank, compressor, and liquid reservoir. Among them, the evaporator has the most complicated structure, the highest precision requirements, and the most difficult production. Therefore, only a few large-scale industrial ice machine companies in the world have the ability to develop and produce them.

Features of Tube Ice Machine

1.Pre-Purify patented water purification technology, the tube ice produced can be eaten directly.

2.The evaporator is made of high-quality stainless steel 304 and other materials, which meets the international hygiene standards.

3.The machine adopts integrated design, compact structure, easy to install and use.

4. PLC computer module, fully automatic ice making process.
