The Ice-O-Matic ICEU300FW undercounter, self-contained ice maker is a water-cooled machine producing up to 356 pounds of Full Cube ice every 24 hours (under optimal temperature conditions of 70 degrees F Air and 50 degrees F Water). Full Cube ice measures 7/8" by 7/8" by 7/8" and the larger cube take a bit longer to melt. For beverage retailers, this means that the Full Cube will cool down a beverage with less dilution of the liquid. The ICEU300FW would therefore be a good choice for a restaurant or other location where bar drinks will be served "on-the-rocks".
The Ice-O-Matic ICEU300FW is only 30 inches wide, allowing it to be installed in locations with minimal available wall space. In addition, because it is only 39 inches tall with its 6 inch legs attached, the Ice-O-Matic ICEU300FW can fit under most standard commercial counter space and shelving. Therefore, you can make and store ice wherever you need it. The ICEU300FW will produce and harvest nearly 15 pounds of ice every hour. And with its 112-pound built-in storage bin, the Ice-O-Matic ICEU300FW will always keep plenty of that ice on hand for you.
One of the benefits of a water-cooled ice machine such as the Ice-O-Matic ICEU300FW is that there is no hot air vented into the room where you install the unit. This means that you do not need any additional side clearances when installing the unit. The undercounter ice machine can be placed adjacent to other equipment without any decrease in its ice-making performance. In addition, the Ice-O-Matic ICEU300FW will run more quietly and use slightly less electricity. Other installation requirements for the ICEU300FW are a 115-volt electrical power source, two incoming water lines (one for making ice and the other for cooling the condenser), and an external drain (either a gravity floor drain or a drain pump - not included).
The water-cooled condenser does require the use of more water than an air-cooled ice machine, so the Ice-O-Matic ICEU300FW will also flush significantly more water out of the unit every day (175 gallons for every 100 pounds of ice the machine makes), so you need to assess your water and electricity costs before selecting a water-cooled ice maker.
Lastly, the purely electro-mechanical controls on the Ice-O-Matic ICEU300FW demonstrate the manufacturer's commitment to the simplest, most efficient process of making ice without overly complicated computer interfaces, which ends up saving you money at purchase and potentially over the life of the ice machine.
