Why do you need to add salt when flake ice machine freezes? Anyone who has used an ice maker knows that salt needs to be added when making ice flake ice machines. Then you all know why flake ice machines need to add salt and what matters should be paid attention to when adding salt.
1. Why should the flake ice machine add salt to make ice:
The flake ice machine is divided into fresh water flake ice machine and sea water flake ice machine according to the water source. However, the fresh water flake ice machine also adds a certain proportion of salt water, which is far lower than the concentration of sea water. The purpose of adding salt is to make the borneol form easier, improve the quality of the borneol, make the borneol more suitable size, make it more beautiful, fall off more easily, protect the equipment, and consume less electricity. If no salt is added, the ice cap will have a chance to screech and consume more power.
2. How to add salt to the flake ice machine:
Press the start/stop button to start the borneol machine, add salt according to a certain proportion, then fill the brine bucket with water and stir evenly, and then put the brine pump inlet pipe into the brine bucket.
3. Precautions for adding salt to flake ice machine:
After adding salt to the machine, observe the ice making situation of the flake ice machine, the size and hardness of the ice flakes. If the ice flakes produced by the flake ice machine are found to be relatively broken, the flake ice machine is accompanied by a screeching sound of ice being cut with an ice blade, indicating that salt water is not being added to the water tank. A common problem is air in the inlet and outlet pipes, which affects the accuracy of the salt pump. At this time, the air should be out of the pipeline. The correct way is: the nozzle of the salt pump outlet pipeline inhales the air. Until you feel the salt water in your mouth, then watch the salt water pump for drips. If there are water droplets, this is normal. Then insert the brine pump outlet tube into the tank.
You can make ice without adding salt, but the ice is hard and not easy to fall off. The purpose of adding salt is to make the ice fall off easily.
