MAJA Flake Ice Technology: well-proven since more than 60 years!

MAJA Flake Ice offers a lot of advantages.

Efficient refrigeration – ice temperature approx. -7°C
• Quick product cooling
• Slow melting – long freshness

Dry-frozen flake ice
• Dry surface, virtually no water from melting
• Easy storage, easy handling
• Attractive appearance

Light weight (density 0,42 kg/dm³)
• Up to 30 % lighter than other types of ice, thus less ice requirements for display filling and reduced costs for transportation.

Thin ice flakes (1 – 2 mm)
• Very good product covering
• Big surface, thus good heat exchange
• Little mechanical resistance, thus good mixing behaviour, no damage to the product and to the tools, such as mincer blades, dough hooks…

Reduced production costs
• High efficiency
• 100 % of the water becomes ice, therefore no waste of water.

High reliability – low maintenance
• Reduced operating and maintenance costs

• No additional efforts for water treatment, such as softening, filtration…

Production of MAJA Flake Ice

A deep-frozen metal cylinder, rotating in a water reservoir, guarantees constant ice quality. With each rotation, water freezes on the evaporation drum and then flakes off, leaving the machine as dry-frozen ice.

This system of ice production was developed by MAJA and has proven its reliability for six decades. It is simple, cost-saving and does not require special maintenance.

Developed and brought to perfection by MAJA!
