OptimICE® 120 Krapavél

Hraðkælikerfi sem framleiðir krapa úr sjóvatni eða saltvatni um borð í skipinu eða á landi.

Where the cool chain never breaks

OptimICE® is a liquid slurry ice technology that replaces conventional flake ice. The liquid slurry ice is produced on board the ship or onshore using seawater or saltwater. The liquid slurry ice surrounds the fish, quickly cooling it down below 0°C and keeping the temperature around -0.5°C. During the whole fishing trip, landing, during transport to manufacturers and at the final consumer the fish stays at the same temperature without freezing. Therefore, the cool chain never breaks with OptimICE® rapid cooling and the fish stays fresh at all times, maintaining maximum quality.

R-404A /R-449A


Optional PreCooler ensures uniform production of OptimICE® over a large inlet water temperatures range.


Cooling water requirements:

5°C = 2.600 L/h

10°C = 3.300 L/h

15°C = 4.700 L/h

20°C = 10.400 L/h

* Appr. 1 kcal is required to achieve a one-degree temperature reduction in one kilogram of fish. ** Based on seawater inlet temperature of 0°C.


A guarantee is given for 12 months after test-run, or max 18 months from delivery of equipment from KAPP factory.


The guarantee covers only duplicate parts delivered EXW KAPP factory if failure is caused by original fault of material and/or workmanship.


The guarantee does not cover any leakage of refrigerant.


This guarantee is contingent upon the installation being approved and/or started by our supervisor at conditions agreed upon by the parties.
