The Ice-O-Matic ICE0520FA air-cooled cuber head produces up to 520 pounds of Full sized cube ice each day (when temperatures are at their optimal: 70 degrees Fahrenheit air and 50 degrees Fahrenheit water). The modular unit is only 22 inches wide and is therefore ideal for locations without a lot of extra wall space. The Ice-O-Matic ICE0520FA needs to be mounted on either an ice storage bin, beverage dispenser, or an ice dispenser (bin or dispenser sold separately). If placed on a 30 inch wide or wider bin, the cuber head will require a bin adapter plate.
Note that the Ice-O-Matic ICE0520FA has an air-cooled condenser. Air intake vents are in the rear of the unit and exhaust vents are on the right side when facing the unit. A minimum of 6 inches of clearance are required for proper air flow per the manufacturer. The space-saving 22-inch wide design also would suit a location where available wall space is at a premium (minimum of 28 inches left to right).
The electrical requirements of the unit are a standard 115 volts, 60Hz, 1-phase power source. Note that the Ice-O-Matic ICE0520FA will require a drain of some kind for any water purged at the end of each ice-making cycle. Any storage bin or dispenser that is used with the ICE0520FA will also require drainage, so be certain that your installation location has either a floor drain or an external drain pump (sold separately). Overall, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0520FA is a great commercial kitchen ice machine since it has a very good ice production rate over 500 pounds per day, (approximately 22 pounds of ice per hour) plus it takes up minimal space in the kitchen. The Full sized cubes measure 7/8 inches by 7/8 inches by 7/8 inches, meaning the cubes last longer in a beverage so there is less dilution of your drinks. For a business with heavy ice machine usage, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0520FA cuber head has a corrosion-resistant stainless steel front and fingerprint proof plastic side panels and top, making this model a durable choice.
Ice-O-Matic has incorporated its Pure Ice Agion anti-microbial protection into the ice-making surfaces, which means less frequent build up of organic growth in the machine. The ice machine's life span is prolonged and the quality of your ice is better. Plus, for those looking to save a little on energy costs, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0520FA has their Harvest Assist technology to shorten the ice making cycle and reduce energy consumption.
