What are the components of the flake ice machine? What are the different roles?

Icesnow flake ice machine is mainly composed of compressor, condenser, expansion valve, evaporator and other accessories, which is known as the four main components of refrigeration in ice making industry. In addition to the main components of the four ice machines, Icesnow flake ice machine also has drying filter, one-way valve, solenoid valve, stop valve, oil pressure gauge, electric box, high and low pressure switch, water pump and other accessories.


1. Compressor: the compressor that provides power to the ice maker is the heart of the whole ice maker. The vapor refrigerant inhaled at low temperature and low pressure is compressed into liquid refrigerant at high temperature and high pressure.
2. Condenser: the condenser is divided into air-cooled condenser and water-cooled condenser. The excess heat is mainly removed by the fan, and the high-temperature vapor refrigerant is cooled into liquid at room temperature, which provides necessary conditions for the evaporation of the ice maker.
3. Dry filter: the dry filter is the sweeper of the ice making machine, which can filter the moisture and debris in the ice making system to ensure the stable operation of the equipment.
4. Expansion valve: the expansion valve is composed of valve body, balance pipe and valve core. Its function is to throttle and expand the liquid refrigerant into vapor refrigerant, provide conditions for the evaporation of ice maker, and adjust the refrigerant flow.

5. Flake ice evaporator: the evaporator of ice flaker is also called ice drum. Water enters the sprinkler pipe of the evaporator and evenly sprays water on the inner wall of the evaporator to form a water film. The water film exchanges heat with the refrigerant in the flow channel of the evaporator, the temperature drops rapidly, and a layer of thin ice is formed on the inner wall of the evaporator. Under the pressure of the ice skate, it will break into ice flakes and fall into the ice storage. Part of the water not frozen flows back to the cold water tank from the water return port through the water baffle. Whether an ice maker manufacturer can produce an evaporator is a symbol of the strength of an ice maker manufacturer.

6. Electric box: the control system is usually input into the electric box to control the coordinated operation of each accessory. Usually, the electric box is composed of multiple relays, contactors, PLC controllers, phase sequence protectors, switching power supplies and other accessories. The assembled Lille ice making electromechanical box is much better than the circuit board. The system is stable, safe, reliable and easy to maintain. The disadvantage is that it is expensive.

7. Check valve: the check valve allows the refrigerant to flow along the design direction to prevent refrigerant backflow and cross flow.

8. Solenoid valve: the solenoid valve is used to control the refrigerant flow, speed and pressure of the ice making system.

9. Ice bin: the high-end ice bin is made of stainless steel and filled with a layer of thermal insulation material. Store the borneol to ensure that it does not melt within 24 hours.
