Ice Make has extended its services into design, engineering, manufacturing, assembly, fabrication, installation, testing and commissioning with best in class after sales services for ammonia based skid mounted water chillers for Dairy and Pharma, Water, Glycol and Brine Chillers for Brewery, Beverage and Pharma Industries, Water, Glycol and Brine chilling plants for Dairies, Breweries, Pharma, Chemical, Fertilizer and allied Industries using Reciprocating as well as Screw Compressors, Shell and Tube, Atmospheric, Plate and Frame, Evaporative Condensers and Shell and Tube, Brazed, Shell and Plate, Plate and Frame Chillers, Falling Film Evaporators, Ice Accumulating Coils with Ice Bank Tank and other Refrigeration Equipment, controls and PLC systems.


Mr.Chandrakant P. Patel, CMD, Ice Make Refrigeration Limited said “The Company is strongly focussing on innovative refrigeration engineering as there is huge requirement for Cold Storages in the Country in addition to over 100 Food Parks that are being developed in the next few years. Ice Makewill be able to extend services for ammonia based large cold stores for storage of Milk & Milk products and Blast Freezing & Hardening Chambers for Ice Cream, Meat, Poultry, Paneer, Cheese and Butter among others.According to the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration (IIAR), ammonia is 3 to 10% more thermodynamically efficient than competitive refrigerants. This allows an ammonia-based refrigeration system to achieve the same cooling effect while using less power. As a result, where ammonia refrigeration is appropriate, it can offer lower long-term operation costs. We have already received few orders for this and expecting good response from the market.”


The Company has hiredMr Kishore Manglani, a Mechanical Engineer with 35 years of rich experience, expertise, specialisation in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning to head Ammonia Refrigeration Division and Projects(along with other refrigeration design, project planning & management, commissioning and service engineers).Mr.Manglanihas worked with Voltas, Alfa Lavel, York Refrigeration, and IDMC among others in past.
