The most complete cube ice machine explanation!

In the hot summer, cold drinks have become the best choice for people to cool off. In milk tea shops, coffee shops and other beverage shops, the cube ice machine has become an important equipment, bringing people cool and refreshing drinks. Next, I will give you an in-depth understanding of this refrigeration equipment from the structure, principle, characteristics and application of cube ice machine.


First of all, cube ice machines are commercial ice machines. In addition to cube ice machines, other commercial ice machines include snowflake machines, shaving ice machines, bullet ice machines, lunar-shaped ice machines, spherical ice machines, and milk ice machines. Commercial cube ice machines are basically integrated, including compressors, condensing fans, microcomputer PC boards, etc.


Next, let’s take a look at the principle of the cube ice machine. In order to facilitate everyone’s understanding, we divide the ice-making principle into four parts:

Compression Condensation:

The refrigeration cycle of the cube ice machine begins with the compression and condensation stage. During this stage, the refrigerant (usually freon, etc.) enters the compressor in gaseous form. The function of the compressor is to compress the refrigerant into a high-temperature and high-pressure gas. Through compression, the distance between the gas molecules in the refrigerant decreases, allowing it to hold more heat.

Expansion throttling:

The high-temperature and high-pressure refrigerant then enters the expansion and throttling stage through the throttle valve. The role of the throttle valve is to quickly reduce the temperature and pressure of the refrigerant, making it ready for the next stage. When the refrigerant passes through the throttling valve, its pressure and temperature drop sharply, so that the refrigerant enters a state of low temperature and low pressure.

Evaporative condensation:

The refrigerant enters the evaporator in the state of low-temperature and low-pressure gas, which is a key component in the refrigeration cycle of the cube ice machine. An evaporator is usually a metal tube or similar structure whose exterior is in contact with the surrounding environment in order to absorb heat. In a cube ice machine, the function of the evaporator is to absorb heat from the water, cool it down rapidly, and freeze the water into the form of ice. In the evaporator, the refrigerant changes from a low-temperature and low-pressure gas to a high-temperature and high-pressure gas, completing the phase change process from liquid to gas.

Scraper shaved ice:

In the evaporator, the cooling action of the refrigerant causes the water to quickly freeze into ice cubes. At the same time, the cube ice machine is equipped with a scraper for shaving the ice cubes into fine granular ice. These granulated ice can be directly used to make cold drinks, such as milk tea, coffee and fruit juice, etc., bringing a cool and refreshing experience to beverage stores.


Cube ice machine features:

Cube ice machines are widely used and are the most common in daily life. It is suitable for high-end coffee shops, high-end bars, private clubs, star hotels, guesthouses, milk tea shops, and high-end entertainment venues.
