Industrial Ice Machine

Our Industrial Ice Machines are used in many different industries. If you need large quantities of ice to cool your products, our Ice Machine is a good solution. By using Omega Pillow Plates, our machines remain relatively small and are easy to maintain.
Based on your wishes, we make heat calculations to see which capacity of the Ice Machine you need. Our Ice Machines are always custom-made and designed to your wishes and needs.

How does an Ice Machine work?
At the top of the Ice Machine, water is pumped in that falls through small holes and slowly flows along the Omega Pillow Plates. The coolant in the Pillow Plates is cooled down till the water is frozen. If the ice on both sides of the plates is approximately 5 to 10 mm thick, hot gas is injected into the Pillow Plates, causing the plates to warm up and release the ice from the plates. The ice falls into a storage tank and breaks into small pieces. This ice can be transported by a transport screw to the desired location.



  • No moving parts which means maintenance is minimal
  • Low energy consumption
  • High ice production due to relatively small machine
  • Easy to keep clean






All of our Ice Machines are custom-made. Together with an engineer, we look at what your needs are to cool and which capacity suits you. If required, we will make a heat calculation. Below you find our options:

Depending on your requirements, Omega Ice Machines produce 1.000 to > 100.000 kg of ice a day.
Per Pillow Plate, 5 - 10 mm of ice can be frozen on both sides at a time.

Cooling medium
Almost all coolants can be used with these types of Ice Machines, such as R717, Glycol, Alkali, CO2, R22, R134A and R404A.
If you want to use other coolants, please email one of our engineers.

The Ice Machine is made of stainless steel, such as 304, 316, SMO-254 and Duplex 2205. If you want a cooler made of a different material, please email one of our engineers.

Ice Machines were originally used for the fresh food and beverage industry. We now see that our Ice Machines are also used for other applications.
Examples of industries where our ice machines are used are:
