  ice-making factory

 

Cambodia

Ice is water from which the heat of fluidity has been removed by using a liquid gas, usually ammonia, as a cooling agent, by compressing the gas in a strong iron cistern which is then released into an expansion vessel, called the freezing tank. As the compressed gas expands, it rapidly cools and thus freezes the stored water.
