A control technique of crystal orientation of ice can presumably help to improve freezing processes of various industries. However, the technique without seed ice has not been established yet. The author had found that crystal orientation of ice rotated gradually during high-rate growth along a cooling wall. The purpose of this paper is to examine the crystal orientation rotation of ice during growth in several types of bended capillaries at supercooling temperature. We show that, after growing through the capillaries, c-axis of ice crystal is within a certain angle range. On the basis of the measurement the rotation of crystal orientation before and after the growth through some sections of the capillaries, we constructed an empirical model of c-axis rotating gradually during ice growth in the capillary. The calculation of the model can explain the approach process of c-axis of ice crystal growing in the bended capillary to the specified direction.
