Direct cooling ice machine VS Brine cooling ice machine
With ice making technology development and people's life quality improving, traditional block ice plant with brine tank is more replaced by new ice plant with direct cooling ice technology. the basic ice making principle is same: water flows into ice cans and freeze due to refrigeration. then ice falls out.
however, signficant changes are:
1. Direct cooling ice machine has no brine tank so the water exchanges with refrigerant directly and it is more efficient.
2. Ice falling process is different too: direct cooling ice machine has no need of ice dump, thawing tank, crane, steel trail etc complicated structure. Ice is made in ice cans and then fall directly down.
so direct cooling technology ice machine is more efficient and sanitary if you want the ice for food contact etc.
