HCFC to CFC. BUUS horizontal iceflakers

Changing from R22 to HCF refrigerants.

As R22 is phased out you may be in need of changing R22 plants into CFC plants. R404A, R047 and R507 are popular refrigerants and can be used in BUUS horizontal iceflakers without problems. You must however change all o-rings in the iceflakers. If the o-rings are not changed when you change from mineral oil to synthetic oil.

It may be a good idea to upgrade the iceflaker to the modern double bearing / double seal system.

we can advise you, so you make the right choice. Please forward the serial number of the iceflaker to fso@buus or pmo@buus.dk

Slurry ice makers

BUUS slurry ice makers are most often based on the well known, rugged and stable C, D, E and F horizontal type flake ice machines. They are however also available for the bigger, vertical type V and VD. The ice is formed on the outside of the rotating evaporator and is therefor not as sensitive to the salt content of the water as traditions slurry makers, where the ice is formed on the inside of a tube. The the BUUS iceflaker makes ice for slurry ice the ice is not sub cooled. Instead we gain a higher yield and allow the ice to be softer. The ice is mixed with water in the slurry mixer and pumped to a tank or directly to be used in tubs etc.

Some customers wish to be able to make sub cooled ice from seawater or freshwater. In that case we add a simple control board allowing the ice to be crisp. In that case the ice is not mixed with water, but lead to the hull.
