Ice Storages

In addition to an efficient production of ice, proper storing and transportation equipment are equally important parts of an entire plant setup. KTI offers specially designed Mobile Ice Storages to keep the fresh and transportable over a certain period. KTI Ice Storages are available in different versions and with holding capacities between 23 and 120 tons. However, special sizes of 12 tons or 250 tons holding capacities have been built and are available upon request.

Of course, all KTI Mobile Ice Storages are are equipped with a patented room cooling system to keep the inside temperature below 0°C. A specially developed double-wall insulation allows an optimal cold air circulation, even when the ice storage is completely filled. This ensures to keep the conditions required by flake ice and plate ice.

A fully automated ice rake system with heavy-duty rakes, levels the ice during filling the ice storage and discharges the ice for transportation. A leveling screw facilitates the ice discharge in semi-automatic ice storages.

KTI developed three versions of the KTI Mobile Ice Storage for various applications and demands:

Mobile Ice Storage (MIS)

KTI Mobile Ice Storages (MIS) are the perfect combination with an Flake Ice Plant (FLIP) or Plate Ice Plant (PLIP). With this, certain amounts of ice can be stored over a period and discharged on demand and for covering demand peaks.

An entire daily capacity of the ice plant can be discharged during the production in a short period. Even excess production capacity will fill the ice storage and is not lost.

The Mobile Ice Storages are equipped with fully automatic rake and conveyor system as well as a air cooling unit. They are prefabricated in rigid steel frames or a container with double-wall insulation. The size of the ice storage depends on its holding capacity but starts with a 40-ft. container up to a steel frame of approx. 15 m length and 4.5 m width. This means, all containerized ice plants of KTI perfectly fit to be placed upon a Mobile Ice Storage. For increasing the capacity, two ice plants can be placed next to each other on top of the models MIS-75, MIS-90, MIS-120.

Jede KTI Eisanlage passt genau auf die Mobile Ice Storages, wobei es sogar möglich ist, zwei Eisanlagen auf den Modellen MIS 75, MIS 90 und MIS 120 nebeneinander zu platzieren.

KTI provides support steel frames, stairs and platforms for all ice storage sizes. After finalizing the connection of power and water supply together with the installation of the ice plant, the ice storage and delivery system are ready to use.

Optional: Support steel frame for raising the ice storage and housing the conveyor system or water tank, pneumatic slide gate for ice bagging

Semi-automatic Mobile Ice Storage (MIS-sa)

KTI Semi-automatic Mobile Ice Storages (MIS-sa) are installed in 40-ft. containers, including an insulated storage room, leveling screw and air cooling unit. The ice storage can be transported like a standard container on a truck – thus it is easily to shift it anywhere in the world.

MIS-sa can be easily transported on trucks and thus are very flexible in use.

The ice storage is filled automatically and the ice is distributed evenly in the container via a screw. The ice discharge is carried out manually via an open trough discharge screw. This is the most economical way of storing dry flake ice.

The equipment of the Semi-automatic Ice Storage is based on the Mobile Ice Storages (MIS)s and the same components for insulation and room cooling are used. All models are compatible with all containerized Flake Ice Plants (FLIP).

Features:
Ice holding capacity: 12, 22, 26 tons
Ice types: Flake ice
Room cooling: Extra large cross section for cold air circulation, water cooled
Ice discharge:: manual via open trough screw conveyors embedded in the floor
Certification: CE, CSA, UL conformity; further upon request
Power supply: 50 Hz or 60 Hz; special power supply upon request
Control: Siemens PLC, Color-Touchscreen
Optional: Second ice output at discharge screw, galvanized screws

Bolted Ice Storages (MIS-b)

All KTI Bolted Ice Storages (MIS-b) are designed according to the principles of KTI’s Mobile Ice Storages (MIS), with final assembly on-site.

A big advantage is, that the Bolted Ice Storages can be shipped anywhere in the world in containers and assembled at remote locations. KTI manufactures the bolted ice storages with various holding capacities between 40 and 120 tons, however special sizes up to 250 tons have already been realized.

All Bolted Ice Storages are completely assembled at our production facility and disassembled for transport so that all modules can be transported in standard shipping containers. On-site, KTI assembles all parts on-site or supports the customer with supervising the final assembly, depending on customers’ specification.

Bolted Ice Storages are equipped equally to KTI’s Mobile Ice Storages. The entire standard equipment like insulation, room cooling, automatic ice rake system for leveling and discharging as well as the PLC-based controlling unit are included. Containerized Flake Ice Plants (FLIP) or Plate Ice Plants (PLIP) are highly compatible with the Bolted Ice Storages and can be placed on top of them.
