The manual handling of ice represents large problems in work processes. This problem is solved by automatic systems for dosing ice in processes.
Improvement in hygiene: The ice is not moved by hand; parts of the system are sealed which avoids foreign objects getting in.
Productivity gains: Work flow times can be reduced by faster addition of ice and more efficient cooling.
Simplification in handling: Ergonomics is the decisive term. There is no need for strenuous shovelling and carrying of the ice, working conditions are greatly improved.
Personalkostenreduzierung: Durch das leichte Handling mit ZIEGRA Eis wird Arbeitszeit eingespart.
Quality assurance / process reliability: Our systems are integrated into your process control systems, errors are largely excluded through automation. The amount of ice used can be recorded, which ensures a high level of transparency.
ZIEGRA ice systems are constructed from modules according to your individual requirements and are thereby orientated to your special area of application. The following dosing systems can, amongst others, be used:
ZIEGRA IceStation: Easy to handle This system consists of an ice machine and an ice container on a base frame for easy removal of ice at any desired capacity. The pre-production of large amounts is possible, and the handling made easier by an insulated transport cart. The ZIEGRA IceStation can be used for example in fish shops, for goods displays and at food-processing sites.
The ZIEGRA IceSupply is ideal for the automatic removal of ice from pre-produced ice. Every size of machine is considered. The ice silo (500 - 20,000 kg) has an automatic removal system. On the press of a button the ice is transported from a removal coil e.g. into a transport cart. When expanded with a weighing unit and PLC controller system the semi-automatic system becomes fully-automatic and the ice is added directly to the work process, e.g. at wrapping or production sites for filling fish boxes. Or in bakeries for loading kneading basins and cutter carts as well as filling boxes when packing vegetables.
ZIEGRA StreamIce® systems: Flowing ice The fastest possible dosing and cooling with flowing ice for several, even separate consumption points with simple technology: ZIEGRA StreamIce systems meet the highest demands on precision and flexibility. They combine the advantages of ice and cold water: high, extremely fast cooling and easy dosage.
Depending on the requirement, StreamIce® can be made from salt or fresh water. It is kept homogenous in a stirring container and on demand is pumped to the consumption points. A flow meter and insulated ring pipes provide exact dosing and efficiency. For immediate cooling of fish (also on trawlers) or for loading dough at bakeries, as well as for container cooling in a double shell.
