Vessel flake ice machines (VF Series)

Recom’s vessel flake ice machines are specifically made for fishing vessels, using sea- or fresh water to produce flake ice. The parts contacting the water are made of stainless steel 304 or 316L. Due to its compact measurements, these machines will fit on every seagoing vessel. Flake ice are flat, thin pieces of ice (1,8 – 2,2 mm), that are produced on a vertical drum. The ice is formed on the inner surface of the drum by pouring a film of (sea) water over it, then contact freezing it into a sheet of ice. This ice is sub-cooled in order to make it brittle, and then cracked off by a stainless steel ice knife, resulting in the ice falling into the storage.
