The Ice-O-Matic ICEU226FW undercounter ice maker is a water-cooled unit producing up to 232 pounds of Full sized cube ice every 24 hours, under optimal temperature conditions of 70 degrees air and 50 degrees water. The all-in-one ice machine has a self-contained ice storage bin with a capacity of up to 74 pounds of Full Cube ice. The Ice-O-Matic ICEU226FW produces a full size cube ice with dimensions of 7/8 inches x 7/8 inches x 7/8 inches and the larger cube means drinks are cooled quickly and the ice lasts longer in the glass. The ICEU226FW would provide great ice for a bar application where drinks are served "on-the-rocks".
This Ice-O-Matic ICEU226FW is ideal for locations looking to prevent the hot air often vented from air-cooled models. WIth a water-cooled condenser that utilizes less electricity, and an ice Harvest Assist feature for extra energy savings, the Ice-O-Matic ICEU226FW only consumes 6.6 kWh per one hundred pounds of ice. An additional benefit of the Ice-O-Matic ICEU226FW's water-cooled condenser is that since there is no need for any air vent, there is no need for clearance on the sides of the unit. Therefore, at 24.5 inches wide and with a height of 39 inches, the undercounter model can be installed in most locations. Installation requirements for the Ice-O-Matic ICEU226FW are two incoming water lines (one for making ice and one for cooling the condenser), a water drain for the waste water that is purged after cooling the condenser, and the required 208-230 volt electrical power.
However, note that the Ice-O-Matic ICEU226FW does use a lot more water each day, since water is used for the ice AND for cooling the unit. Approximately 167 gallons of additional water is purged per 100 pounds of ice produced. In return, the Ice-O-Matic ICEU226FW does produce slightly more ice each day than the related air-cooled model.
