Ice Making Solutions for a Vegetable Produce Facility

Refrigeration Solutions for the Food & Beverage Industry

For over 45 years, Berg Chilling Systems Inc. has built an international reputation for designing, manufacturing installing, and servicing thousands of industrial thermal process control and industrial refrigeration systems to customers worldwide. Berg continuously provides reliable, custom cooling solutions in more than 50 countries in industries defined by transportation, chemical & petrochemical, manufacturing, building & construction, food & beverage, national defence, natural resources, recreational sports and more. 

Today’s consumers demand the highest standards when it comes to food and beverage processing. To exceed customer expectations, maintain cost competitiveness, and meet regulatory requirements, food and beverage producers turn to Berg for total chilling solutions. Berg has provided industrial process temperature control solutions with chilling, pumping and freezing equipment to achieve proper food processing temperatures and maintain the cold chain to prevent spoilage. 

Berg shell ice machines are used in the food and beverage industry in many ways. Shell ice can be used for preserving perishables such as produce, meat, poultry and seafood, as a water ingredient in bread making, or as chiller tank ice for poultry and meat processing.  The shell ice machines can also be used to produce blood plasma and frozen juices 

Ice Making Solutions for a Broccoli Produce Farm

Broccoli chilled by shell ice

In 2016, Berg had the honour of supplying an Ontario-based vegetable produce facility with its custom industrial cooling systems. The facility has a broccoli farm and packs ice in the boxes to keep its broccoli fresh. This is done in a vacuum chamber. With that in mind, the broccoli farm needed a more efficient, environmentally friendly system to help in the ice production and storage of growing of its broccoli and other produce at its Burford facility. In addition, the farm had already been using four of Berg’s first model of shell ice machines to aide in its ice production and was due for a refurbishment and upgrade of their shell ice makers. 

Berg supplied them with four (4) shell ice making machines equipped with a remote air-cooled condenser, a condenser stand designed and fabricated to support the four industrial ice machines above the storage container, and an auger system. The ice makers are capable of supplying 15 US tons of fresh water ice per day, based 60°F make-up water temperature and 90°F ambient air temperature. The shell ice makers were charged with R-404A refrigerant and featured an ice thickness customization between 1/8” to 5/8” to suit the facility’s particular ice requirements. In addition, Berg’s refrigeration experts also did the installation, start-up and commissioning of the systems.  

With Berg’s shell ice makers, the broccoli facility was able to produce ice more efficiently than other ice machines, requiring less electricity per ton of ice to operate.
