Skaginn 3X fluid ice system is a complete ice solution and probably most flexible fluid ice system available today. The system can use external source of ice and can be delivered with or without flake ice machine. When delivered with flake ice machine it is more than a fluid ice system and can produce pure flake ice, simultaneously while producing fluid ice. The system is adjustable and can deliver any fluid ice mixture up to 50% thickness while the temperature can also be adjusted by salinity from the range of 0°C to -15°C.
One of the unique features of this system is the ability to produce fresh water fluid ice with up to 15% density. The fresh water fluid ice has no salinity and is therefore suitable for chilling products with low tolerance for salinity.
The system capacity can be easily increased by adding ice machine to the system. Each system can hold up to 4 ice machines which results in capacity of approx. 200 ton of 10% fluid ice per 24 hours. The system can be delivered with or without refrigeration system.
Benefits of fluid ice.
Highly efficient ice systems are essential to all modern fish processing plants to secure freshness and increased shelf life of raw-material. Fluid ice (often referred as slurry ice) is ideal for rapid chilling of a product and for preservation. Studies have shown that fluid ice is superior to traditional ice by lowering bacterial growth and extend shelf life. The thickness of the fluid ice can be adjusted based on required storage time for the product.
