OptimICE® 103 Liquid Ice Machine

A rapid cooling system that transforms seawater or saltwater into liquid ice. For use both onboard and onshore.

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.
