THE FLEXIBILITY OF PROVEN EQUIPMENT

 

TURBO has been manufacturing ice handling products since 1967, applying ice making technology and solving ice storage and handling problems for all these years. The products demonstrated here incorporate functionally interrelated features, designed to deliver extended, dependable performance with minimum maintenance. Flexibility built-in to store and discharge any kind of ice: flake, tube, plate, or shell.

EXCLUSIVE LOAD DETECTOR

 

TURBO has anticipated many user’s problems. A special load detector device signals the rake assembly to raise automatically according to varying rates of ice build-up in the bin. Also, it may be adjusted for different ice delivery rates. There is less strain and wear on the working equipment; less chance of breakdown; and, most important, less chance to bury the rake.

 

THE IMPORTANCE OF COMPONENT COATINGS

 

Another innovative concept. Ice and water can rust equipment, a known fact to everyone in this business. TURBO protects the vital components. To minimize rust and corrosion, all chains, sprockets and other steel components are eletro-coated or hot dip galvanized to produce a minimum maintenance finished product. Storage bin sliding is aluminum to keep the product clean and pure. The option of stainless steel also can be specified.

 

A VARIETY OF APPLICATIONS

 

The built-in flexibility of these products makes this equipment an efficient answer to ice storage for many practical applications.

  • PACKAGED ICE
  • INDUSTRIAL MARKETS ( Chemical processing, Seafood and Poultry Processing )
  • AGRICULTURAL ICING ( Produce )
  • CONSTRUCTION ( Concrete Icing )

 

All TURBO ice storage products are USDA approved(installation onsite inspection may be required). Built to meet most industrial standards. Ice loading and unloading is safe and simple. Regardless of size, every TURBO ice rake operates on basically the same, simple manner. Whatever the job, TURBO can match ice storage and delivery to demand.

 

GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR STORAGE

 

Bottom ice (blue ice) left for sometime will compact and solidify. This puts a great demand on the rake assembly to get this ice out. Turbo’s rake is better equipped to do this.

 

This is accomplished by furnishing a much more sturdy rake assembly to handle blue ice efficiently. Turbo’s heavier-duty rake can dig deeper into older, more compact ice. Our engineers with their combined experience came up with the answer. Just build a more rugged rake than the competition. Much heavier steel components do the job.

 

LESS DOWNTIME

 

This is the real user benefit. A more rugged constructed product that’s more corrosion and rust resistance will always result in a product operating with less wear, less chance of breakdown. And that’s what users need. Turbo’s flexibility of design with the many options matches ice storing and delivery to demand, matches the product to the working conditions. As the respected leader in this business, experience has taught us what users need and want. Hundreds of applications in almost all types of storage/handling locations have helped us to anticipate any problems that can occur, BEFORE any product is installed.

~2 Includes space required for mounting control panel, and rake bin door hand winch, 24 inch clearance at the front to operate the door hand winch, and base plate flanges on the vertical rake steel columns. In addition to the space listed above most electrical codes also require a 36 inch clearance in front of the electrical panel. Does not include space required for floor screw drive. Dimensions subject to change without notice. Reference data sheet for installation dimensions. Included is the rake assembly, stainless steel girder liners, rake drive motor, hoist assembly, hand winch for door, rake bin door, limit tube assembly, installation drawings, Operating and Maintenance manuals, floor screw limit switch assembly, and controls for loading and unloading ice. Floor screw conveyor for ice delivery is not included. Bin structure and bin liner are not included. Electrical control panel includes controls and motor starters for all motors supplied. Includes motor starter for floor screw provided by others. Load detector and programmable controller controls are standard. Rake assembly is factory assembled for testing. Rake components are “match marked” and disassembled prior to shipment.

 

~3 Overall height ‘H’ is determined by adding 5′-3″ to the ice height. Ice heights are available in one foot increments from 8 feet to 18 feet. Desired ice capacity (U.S. tons) divided by tons/ft. (above) equals ice height rounded to the nearest foot. Ideal ice height is 12 feet. Example: For a 20′ * 45′ rake with 210 U.S. desired tons storage capacity

 

Ice height = 210 U.S tons / 18.0 tons/ft = 11.67ft.

 

Specify 12 feet ice height. Actual storage capacity=216.0 U.S. tons
