Ice machine

Water is pumped to the top of evaporator and flows freely on the external surface of the evaporator plates. Refrigerant is pumped to the internal surface of the evaporator plates, building uniformly thick ice on external surface of the evaporator plates.

As ice reaches a thickness of 5-10 mm, it is released by applying hot gas refrigerant to the internal surface of the evaporator plates. Ice falls into the storage tank and breaks into small pieces, which can be pumped or transported by a screw conveyor to whereever cooling is needed. Water from the load is circulated through the stored ice and gets cooled.

Production capacities up to 80.000 Kg/day of ice

•             Concrete cooling.

•             Mining refrigeration.

Application for mining refrigeration  

The Omega ice machines produce flake ice wich can be transported pneumatically or by conveyors, making it ideal for mine cooling applications, where the ice is produced on the ground surface and then transported through a shaft to the different mine levels.

Using transportable ice for mine cooling enables using the latent heat of the ice, which significantly reduces the required mass flow to be pumped up to the surface.

By using transportable ice for mine cooling, a more than four times reduction of the required mass flow in the cooling system is achieved, which results in a significant reduction of the energy consumed for circulating the cooling water up to the surface, and of the related costs.


•             Capacity up to 80.000 Kg/day for standard machines, bigger capacities upon request.

•             Suitable for use with R717,CO2, glycol and HFC refrigerants.

•             Direct expansion Ice Makers are provide with copper liquid distributor

•             Can be made of most types of stainless steel.


Frames are available in designs to meet your specific chilling requirements. All cabinets are custom-made, this means dimensions can be changed according to your specifications.  

Water tanks are available for storage and/or recirculation of water and are available in several designs. The tanks are made out of stainless steel with 50-80 mm of polyurethane insulation.

Standard units are constructed of type 304-L stainless steel with a 2B finish. All welds are pickled/passivated or blasted with glass beads. Optional materials are available upon request, including 316-L and SMO-254 as well as others. Optional finishes include electro-polish for ultra-high purity or corrosion applications.
