Ice Making System Applications for Our Pumps
Ice makers must complete several internal operations to produce large quantities of ice, and magnetic pumps are needed for these to occur. From producing recipe quality water, to providing constant pressure after the filtration process, to recirculation of water glycol solutions, several components must operate efficiently and consistently.
Our centrifugal magnetic drive pumps are a crucial component for any ice maker system. Our design insures that the highest quality water is produced. Our pumps provide consistent pressure, within ice maker specifications, and effectively perform water transfer and recirculation.
Built to withstand severe conditions, our magnetic pumps can tolerate extreme temperatures and internal pressure. Industrial strength construction tolerates heavy chemicals such as acetic acid, acetone, ammonium sulfate, sodium chloride, saltwater and other chemicals.

Choosing an Ice-Making System Pump
Flake ice are thin pieces of ice generally between 1.7 mm and 2.3 mm. There are numerous applications for ice-flaking machines and pumps. Common applications include (but are not limited to) agriculture, food preservation (i.e., fish, poultry), concrete cooling, and snowmaking. As mentioned, ice-making system pumps are used to produce recipe-quality water and to ensure a successful filtration process, among many additional uses.
What Materials can Best Handle Ice-Making System?
Ice making pumps and systems must handle extreme temperatures. For this reason, we recommend polypropylene pumps for any ice flaking and making system. Polypropylene pumps, and specifically magnetic drive pumps that are made of polypropylene materials, are able to withstand the temperature, flow, and internal pressure that ice making pumps and systems place upon them, regardless of the specific purpose of the system.
Specifically, mag drive pumps use polypropylene for the front housing, rear housing, and the impeller. A ceramic or stainless-steel shaft and thrush washer are recommended as well. Our team here at March Pumps is happy to help ensure you receive the right materials with your pumping system for ice-making applications.
Common Industries and Applications for Pumps in Ice Flaking and Making
There are a number of uses for pumps in ice flaking and making. Perhaps most notably, they are used for agricultural and aquaculture purposes. Aquaculture, also called aquafarming, refers to the cultivation of fish and other aquatic organisms. For example, ice flaking pumps are often used for the preservation of fish. Other common applications of ice flaking and making pumps include:
- Filtration processes
- Produce high-quality water
- Recirculation of water glycol solutions
- Concrete cooling
