Air Agitated Ice Builder

FUNCTION

Stores refrigeration in the form of ice during off-peak hours to provide immediate 33°F water.

 

FEATURES

  • Air agitated for even distribution of ice

 

  • Available for both flooded Ammonia (R717) and Direct Expansion Freon (R22 or alternative) operation

 

  • Suited for both indoor and outdoor environments

 

  • Internal coil matrix of heavy wall steel pipe with stainless steel air distribution header

 

  • Internal baffling with adjustable by-pass gate controls

 

  • Insulated steel tank and interlocking insulated steel covers

BENEFITS

The Chester-Jensen Air Agitated Ice Builder provides a continuous unlimited source of 33ºF cold water. In addition, the cooling system equipment used in conjunction with the ice builder can be sized for average rather than peak demand requirements, allowing for lower initial investment costs. Rebuilding of ice during off-peak hours reduces day-to-day operating costs by taking maximum advantage of favorable local electric utility rates.

 

Operation is typically fully automatic, eliminating the need for full-time personnel attendance.

 

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

  • Reliable continuous supply of low temperature water for daily industrial process cooling loads.

 

  • Used with with sanitary plate and frame heat exchangers, ice builders provide a continuous supply of chilled water for cooling dairy products, beverages, baked goods, and a wide variety of flexible packaged food products.

 

  • Latent storage units as applied within the HVAC industry.

 

Note: Many ice builder applications can be expanded and enhanced when augmented with factory installed "SGF" Instant Chillers. Please check with the factory for details.
