The refrigeration method of the ice maker is to raise the refrigerant liquid from low pressure to high pressure, so that the heat is discharged from the low temperature environment to the high temperature environment. Since the ice maker works continuously, the compressor must be continuously cooled to ensure its working efficiency. An ice maker is a mechanical device that generates ice after the water is cooled by the refrigerant in the refrigeration system through the evaporator. According to the different condensation methods of ice machines, ice machines are divided into water-cooled ice machines and air-cooled ice machines.
How to choose the condensation method of the Ice machine
? Usually, small ice machines (0.1-5 tons per day) use more air cooling, and large and medium ice machines (5-100 tons per day) use more water cooling. The main difference between water-cooled and air-cooled ice machines is that water cooling uses water as a carrier to cool the ice machine. The cooling effect of the water-cooled ice machine is determined by the water temperature. The higher the water temperature, the higher the condensing temperature, and the lower the cooling efficiency of the refrigeration unit.
The water-cooled ice machine can reduce the condensing temperature of the refrigeration unit, improve the refrigeration efficiency, and the loss of ice production capacity in summer will not be too large. The condensing temperature of the refrigeration unit is low, and the refrigeration efficiency is improved. Even in the summer, the loss of ice production capacity is small, and the influence of the ambient temperature is small; the cooling effect is good, and it is suitable for medium and large refrigeration systems. The cooling effect of the air-cooled ice machine is determined by the ambient temperature.
The higher the ambient temperature, the higher the condensing temperature, and the lower the cooling efficiency of the refrigeration unit. Under normal circumstances, it is not recommended to use air-cooled ice machines in places where the ambient temperature exceeds 42°C. It does not require water resources, and is relatively convenient and convenient to install. It is suitable for occasions and areas with insufficient water supply and low water pressure. The difference between air-cooled and water-cooled ice machines, the difference between air-cooled and water-cooled is that the refrigeration performance, power, and placement conditions are different.
