The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HA air-cooled modular ice machine produces up to 565 pounds of half-sized cube ice every 24 hours. Therefore, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HA will produce 23.5 pounds of ice every hour. The Half cube ice that the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HA produces measures 7/8" x 7/8" x 3/8". These smaller half cubes work well in dispensing applications as well as for blended drinks.
Ice-O-Matic has designed the ICE0500HA to have a low profile cabinet at only 20" high. The ice maker combines a stainless steel front exterior panel with fingerprint-proof side panels for both durability and aesthetics. In addition, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HA is just over 30" wide, so it will fit in most locations, even those with limited space. Please note that because the ICE0500HA is a standard air-cooled unit, it will require a minimum of 6" of air vent clearance in the back and on the right side for proper circulation.
Regarding installation requirements, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HA needs a 115-volt electrical connection, a water line in, and an external drain (either a gravity floor drain or a drain pump). The ICE0500HA also needs to be mounted on another piece of equipment that can store the ice, such as a storage bin, a beverage dispenser, or an ice dispenser. The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HA cuber head is also efficient. The ice maker uses only 19 gallons of water for every 100 LB of ice it produces. As an additional feature, Ice-O-Matic has incorporated its Harvest-Assist technology. Harvest-Assist helps dislodge ice from the evaporator surface more quickly so the ice-making cycle is shorter. This means less time and energy producing ice, saving you money over the life of the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HA. With all of these efficiencies, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HA has qualified for an ENERGY STAR rating. In order to reduce the growth of bacteria, slime, and fungus, Ice-O-Matic has also incorporated the AgIon antimicrobial compound in the surfaces that contact water or ice.
