Ziegra ZBE 150-S130 CoolNat Floor Standing Stainless Steel Granular Flake Ice Machine, 150Kg Nominal Production, and 130Kg Storage Capacity

Not rated yet

Widespread throughout the global food and drink industry, the use of flake ice is a vital element in many processing operations. Ziegra flake ice machines are designed and manufactured to cater for the growing applications for flake ice around the world. Each machine features integrated refrigeration, controls and ice maker. The result is a complete packaged unit that is easy to install, requiring just secure connection to utilities.

The Ziegra ZBE 150-S130 ice machine makes up to 150kg of flake ice in one of two sizes. It sits on an S130 slope fronted ice storage bin, which stores 130kg of ice ready for use. The ice machine has a B type ice discharge / level control, which drops ice into the bin below, stops ice production when the bin is full and automatically restarts once ice is removed.

For installation you will need:

• A potable water supply terminating in a 3/4” bsp fitting within 2 metres of the machine location. A minimum water pressure of 2bar and a maximum of 6bar is required, if less than 2 bar you will need to fi t a booster pump, if more than 6 bar you will need to fit a pressure reducing valve.

• A drain at a suitable height for gravity drain within 1 m of proposed machine location, machines on bins require a floor drain underneath the bin, if no floor level drain is available you will need to order an optional drain pump part # ZUK9700011

• A standard 3 pin 240-1-50Hz electrical socket within 1.5 metres of machine location. If you need to order a drain pump (see above) you will need a double socket.

Configuration Options


Castor mounting

The bin mounted on castors so the machine can be moved for cleaning. Supplied pre-fitted.


Drain Pump

Pumps the drain water into the site drain if it is too high or far away for gravity drainage. Supplied with a 2 metre flex, it can be directly wired into a fused spur or a plug fitted (not supplied) and plugged into a standard 3 pin socket. Mount on the floor underneath the machine. Not suitable for dusty environments.


Air-cooled condenser options

Remote condenser option: The condenser supplied separately to the machine for remote mounting, typically outside, when the machine is to be located in areas that poorly ventilated or have airbourne contamination such as flour dust. Available as standard for indoor mounting, weatherproof for outside mounting and cu/cu saltwater resistant for mounting in areas close to the sea. ZBE 150 only, not suitable for ZBE 150 CoolNat

Low noise condenser: Only for remote installation. Use when the condenser will be going in an area sensitive to noise, such as residential. ZBE 150 only, not suitable for ZBE 150 CoolNat.



The machine equipped to deal with intermittent temperatures below 5°C, only available in conjunction with remote condenser or water cooled option above.


Additional Hygiene Options


Hygiene +: Auto water drain

The water tank automatically drains when the machine is switched off, preventing water stagnation during periods of infrequent use.


Hygiene +: Automatic flushing

Auto flushing of system with water, includes auto water drain. Details on request.


Hygiene +: UV sterilization

sterilization of the incoming water supply by mean of UV filter, all incoming water is passed through a powerful UV field on its way into the machine which kill almost all biohazards in the water supply. Slows down proliferation of water-borne bacteria inside the machine during operation.


Sanitiser solution: 5litre tub part # ZUK9700044
Ziegra ice machine sanitiser is an anti-bacterial product designed for both regular preventative use and intensive cleaning operations.


Spare filter cartridge: #ZUK9700040

Standard replacement cartridge for the Ziegra single kit, requires change every 6 months.

Ancillary Items


7 day timer

Allows programming of the machine to make ice at specific times of the day or night.


Smartcart 240

80kg capacity insulated ice cart, moulded from food safe polymer for maximum hygiene. With removeable lid. Ideal when the ice machine and bin must be located away from the point where the ice will be used.

Micro Flake Ice 

Type: Flake ice (granular)
Temperature: - 0.5°C
Size:  small flakes

Like all other types of Ziegra flake ice, micro ice consists of irregular pieces of ice. In the case of micro ice, these pieces are  small, which means there is greater surface area contact with a given product and therefore the rate of cooling is increased. Micro ice is also gentle on delicate products.
Typical uses for micro ice are:
  • Dough cooling in bakeries
  • cooling meat during bowl chopping
  •  Immersion cooling processes (cook & chill)
  • Icing delicate products . e.g. herbs and prawns
  • Sample cooling in Laboratories

The small piece size of micro flake ice can be seen in the picture left. The ice held in a hand hopefully provides sufficient perspective, so it can easily be compared with our other ice types. You will find a similar image on the page for each ice type
Micro ice is very searching. When packing a product such as prawns the ice is added to the top, the box is then shaken and the ice finds its way between the product and into every nook and cranny.
Other types of flake ice would just sit on the top, leaving the product below unprotected.

Midi Flake Ice

Type: Flake ice (granular)
Temperature: - 0.5°C
Size: Medium flakes

Like all other types of Ziegra flake ice, midi ice consists of irregular granular pieces of ice. In the case of midi ice, these are wide ranging in size, with a mix of medium sized flakes, interspersed with much smaller pieces, making this ice a good general purpose ice and a good compromise between micro and macro ice sizes.
The size of the flakes can be seen in the picture on the left, where it is held in the hand.You will find images of ice in someones hand on each ice type page, which hopefully provides perspective, so that a direct comparison can be made with our  other ice types
Ice in storage bins can be kept for several days in a room at ambient temperature, but the ice will remains loose and friable
The most common application for midi ice is for the display of fish in retail outlets such as fishmongers, supermarkets and food service stations.
It is also very popular for packing whole fish and fillets in processors.
Where the ice is to be used for other things such as soft drinks, wine presentation etc, nuggett ice is probably a better option

Macro Flake Ice

Type: Flake ice (granular)
Temperature: - 0.5°C
Size:  large flakes

Like all other types of flake ice, macro ice consists of irregular chips or flakes of ice. In the case of macro ice, these flakes are very large and thick, making this the slowest melting of all the flake ice types.
Some typical uses for macro ice are:
  • Packing shellfish and other tough products
  • Long distance transport of perishable goods
  • Bulk packing/cooling of whole salmon/trout
  • Icing hides/skins
  • Packing vegetables

 Large, thick flakes of Ziegra macro ice are  ideal  when the longevity of the ice is one of  the main  concerns.
 It was originally developed for use in the warm    climates where the benefits of flake ice were  needed but with a larger flake for  maximum  storage life at higher ambient  temperatures.
 This has made it a very popular flake type for  applications with similar problems in the UK..
 The ice is shown in someone's hand to give  perspective, when comparing with other Ziegra ice  types.
These images shows how large the flakes are compared to other types. This along with its optimum temperature gives macro ice exceptional storage characteristics. This ice will outlast any other flake type, it will never freeze together and its slightly curved shape means that it does not slide out of the door so readily when the bunker is opened, reducing a potential hazard
