To show your products on ice?

You want to show products on ice for a long time?
For this you need flexible chip ice pieces, not sub-cooled, which transfer the cooling power slowly, over a longer period. We recommend our industrial ice maker, which produces chip ice at half the cost.

To produce ice, we do have the efficiency in prior focus. Only by melting of the ice, the heat for cooling of the water is taken from the surrounding. Ice is melting at a temperature of 0°C to water and gives 335 kj per kg ice. Therefor we do produce ice with an evaporation temperature T0= -10°C, which generates ice at a temperatures of  T= -0.5°C to -1.0°C. The idea is simple, as the cooling gain for subcooling of the Flake Ice in conventional drum systems is down to T= –8°C, which is only approx. 8% of a higher melting capacity. Unfortunately this has a high energy consumption impact for the drum ice machines as such:

Example: 30 to ice / day
Necessary refrigeration power including losses: ca. 150 kWref
Electric power for the drive of the refrigeration machine:
-30 / 35 °C with COP = 1,8 Pel = 84 kWel – Drum system – Flake Ice
-10 / 35 °C with COP = 3,6Pel = 42 kWel – BUCO Ice Pack
Additional drives: 6 kW
Price for electricity: 0,15 € / kWhel
Running costs at -30 °C : 324 € / day or 11 € / to ice – Drum system
Running costs at -10 °C : 173 € / day or 6 €/to ice – BUCO Ice Pack
Savings: 151 €/ day
for 300 days production: 45.300,-€ / year savings of electricity costs

We have always assimilated engineering science and thermodynamics optimally in the various manufacturing processes.

Thermodynamicists,mechanical engineers and welding engineers define the dimensioning, design and construction of customised heat exchanger panels and systems in materials ranging from mild and austenitic steels through to titanium, and ensure successful distribution of their work worldwide.

In doing so they fall back on production engineering expertise and calculations developed in the course of the past hundred years that are still being continuously optimised in an ongoing process.

In the perception of our customers, the Buco product stands for:

Technical and process-oriented consulting
Thermodynamic efficiency
Quality and longevity
