The polar bears of Prague Zoo are grateful for MAJA Flake Ice

The polar bears of Prague Zoo are grateful for MAJA Flake Ice

In August 2015 our sales and service partner in the Czech Republic, company FIMEX, installed a MAJA Flake Ice Machine RVH 3000 in the Prague Zoo.

The Prague Zoo, the fourth best in the world, covers an area of 54 ha and counts among the world's most beautiful wildlife parks.
Summers in Europe can be very hot, especially the one of 2015. For better ambient conditions for the polar bears, MAJA Flake Ice is not at their disposal for refreshment! The Flake Ice Machine was installed on a frame above the ice bears' enclosure. The ice falls directly into the compound by a chute.

MAJA Flake Ice is suitable for most versatile applications. Not only the food section counts on the excellent refrigeration properties, but also leasure parks and zoological gardens use MAJA-machines for their attractions.

MAJA has many years of experience in flake ice production with alternative refrigerants.

MAJA has many years of experience in flake ice production with alternative refrigerants.

There is an international scientific consensus that global temperature rise should be limited to 2 ° C in order to prevent undesirable impacts on climate change . The European Commission plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the industries by the year 2030 with 70 percent. No wonder, that this is a current topic in the refrigeration sector as intensively as the replacement of environmentally damaging refrigerant with ecologically sound alternatives.
MAJA therefore sees itself responsible, as an ice machine producer, to offer innovations that can be integrated into climate-neutral composite concepts. Already since 2008 MAJA took the lead with the MAJA Flake Ice Machine range RVH-CO2, following a complete series of machines in this program with outputs in 24 hours of 500 to 3800 kg. The machines are suitable for direct operation via a subcritical R744 composite system. Hundreds of machines have since been successfully installed worldwide, mainly in supermarkets in France, Germany, Spain and Switzerland, but also in Japan.
Especially for industries that require large amounts of ice and operate an ammonia compound system, MAJA offers the series RVH-NH3 an ice machine with a range from 7000 to 14000 kg daily output. R717 has no negative effect on the degradation of the ozone layer, nor does impact the greenhouse effect.
MAJA goes even further and offers already today interesting alternatives to conventional R404A with ice machines which are designed for use with environmentally friendly refrigerants such as R449A, R448A, R507 and many more.

If you have interest in any of the environmentally steady ice machines for the production of flake ice with alternative refrigerants, do not hesitate to contact the MAJA specialists who are more than happy to assist you to find a suitable solution for your requirements.
