Plate Ice Plants (PLIP)

KTI Plate Ice Plants (PLIP) are flexible in their application either for the pure production of plate ice or for combined operations to produce cold water and ice or as a falling film chiller for cold water production.

KTI relies on ammonia as refrigerant as the basis for their Plate Ice Plants. With this, a highly efficient as well as environment-friendly solution for ice production was developed. The is generated on non-rotating stainless steel evaporators, which also reduce the need for maintenance to a minimum.

All Plate Ice Plants are perfectly combinable with KTI ice storages. Further, the whole portfolio of accessoires for ice transportation, stairs and platforms or water tanks, fits to the PLIPs.

For large-scale demands of plate ice, several KTI Plate Ice Plants are combined to a Plate Ice Factory with a refrigeration capacity of several megawatts. Depending on KTI’s customers’ requirements the setup can be expanded easily thanks to the modular design. Ice production capacities of 800 tons and more per day can be realized easily – everything without costs work construction works like building envelopes or others.
