The Ice-O-Matic ICE0320FW water-cooled modular ice machine produces up to 349 LB of full sized cube ice every 24 hours. The 22" wide cabinet of the ICE0320FW combines a stainless steel interior and exterior with fingerprint-proof plastic exterior panels for durability and aesthetics. The water-cooled unit does not require clearance on the sides for air intake and exhaust vents, since the water cooled condenser does not require air circulation. Therefore, you can install the unit in narrow spaces (minimum of 22").
The Full Cube ice that the Ice-O-Matic ICE0320FW produces resists melting for a long time, due to its larger size (7/8" x 7/8" x 7/8"). Full cube ice is ideal for "on-the-rocks" drinks, keeping beverages colder while taking longer to melt, meaning less dilution of your beverages.
The Ice-O-Matic ICE0320FW requires a 115 volt electrical connection, two water lines in (one potable and one for cooling), and a drain for both the purged mineral-laden water from ice making AND the warm waste water that was used in cooling the condenser. The ICE0320FW also requires mounting on another piece of equipment for storage of ice, such as an ice storage bin, a beverage dispenser, or an ice dispenser. The Ice-O-Matic ICE0320FW uses only 39 gallons of water to produce each 100 LB of ice it makes. However the water-cooled condenser requires significantly more water (up to 177 gallons per 100 LB of ice) and this waste-water is all drained out of the unit. Along with not requiring electricity for cooling fans, Ice-O-Matic has incorporated its Harvest-Assist technology to help remove ice from the evaporator surface more quickly, so there is some energy savings on electricity. While there is a lot more water wasted with a water-cooled ice machine, the electrical features translate to less time and energy producing ice.
The growth of bacteria, slime, and fungus on internal surfaces where water touches is reduced due to Ice-O-Matic's built-in antimicrobial compound called AgIon, which is incorporated directly into the surface materials. While you should always install a water filter system on the incoming water line and clean your ice machine regularly, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0320FW water-cooled ice machine cuber head will reliably produce clean pure ice for your business.
