Custom Built Containerised Ice Rooms

Posted by

Are you looking for an ice solution to keep your employees hydrated, refreshed and cool in Australia's extreme conditions?

                                       

We were recently involved in a WA project with a leading Australian engineering group, providing ice making equipment in a customised 20-foot HC Ice Room Container.

To convert the standard shipping container into an ice room, the following steps were taken:

  • Addition of one-way entry and exit doors,
  • Modification of rear section of container to ensure external equipment is mounted within the container boundaries,
  • Internally line the container with insulated panels,
  • Installation of Air-Conditioning units to accommodate equipment and ambient heat loads,
  • Installation of 'Plug and Play' power and water connections.

                                           

Each ice room produced up to 625kg of ice per 24hrs, with storage capacities of up to 380kg.

  • Ice-O-Matic Elevation Series Ice Machine coupled with an Ice-O-Matic Ice Dispenser with Jug Fill (CD40530JF)
  • Ice-O-Matic Elevation Series Ice Machine coupled with a Follett Ice Pro Jug Fill (EDB650JF)

With the push of a button, each user can dispense ice into their water bottles or eskies safely, hygienically and efficiently.

With a heat exchanger incorporated into the Chiller Water Unit (400L storage capacity), pre-chilled water is supplied to the ice machines to ensure higher ice production capacities during the peak demand periods.

A custom-built ice room is the perfect ice solution for any large, extreme, mining or construction site!
