The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FR is a remote air cooled ice machine that can produce up to 567 pounds of ice in a 24 hour period. Therefore, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FR will produce 23.6 pounds of ice every hour. As a remote air-cooled ice machine, the condenser of the ICE0500FR can be placed outside or on the roof, promoting a quieter and cooler surrounding work environment. Note: The ICE0500FR requires the Ice-O-Matic VRC1001B Remote Condenser Unit.
This Ice-O-Matic ice machine produces full size ice cubes which are perfect for use in mixed drinks, soft drinks, and all sorts of beverages. The Full Cube ice that the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FR produces measures 7/8" x 7/8" x 7/8".
Ice-O-Matic has designed the ICE0500FR to have a low profile cabinet at only 20" high. The ice machine cabinet is constructed with a stainless steel front exterior panel with fingerprint-proof side panels. The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FR is just over 30" wide, and is therefore ideal for location with limited space. Since the ICE0500FR is a remote air-cooled unit, the cuber head does not require any air vent clearance and can be installed directly adjacent to other equipment.
Regarding installation requirements, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FR needs a 115-volt electrical connection, a water line in, and an external drain for any water that is purged after each ice-making cycle. The ICE0500FR also needs to be mounted on another piece of equipment, such as a storage bin, a beverage dispenser, or an ice dispenser into which the ice can be dropped. The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FR cuber head uses only 28.2 gallons of water for every 100 LB of ice it produces. Ice-O-Matic has also included its Harvest-Assist feature which helps push ice from the evaporator surface more quickly so the ice-making cycle is shorter and you save electricity over the life of the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FR. In order to reduce the growth of bacteria, Ice-O-Matic has also incorporated AgIon, its antimicrobial compound, into the surfaces that contact water or ice.
