Function of gearmotors for slush machines

Summer time and slushy time…

But what there is behind a very tasty slushy?

Slushes are drinks made from flavored pulverized ice. The key distinction between a slush and other frozen drinks is that ice never freezes into cubes or blocks, but remains tiny ice crystals.

Most modern commercial slush machines consist of a compressor and a cooling cylinder sealed inside a transparent glass container. Slight amounts of ice build up on the cylinder and the auger removes it so that more ice can be created.

This frozen mixture is continuously circulating in the storage area, through a circular screw or plastic mixing vanes, to maintain the ice mixture consistency at a temperature that does not allow further freezing or melting.

The mixers or spirals, make the slushy move in the machine. The mixer inside the slush machine rotates thanks to an electric motor connected to a system of gears.
