The Ice-O-Matic ICE0400HT is an ENERGY STAR qualified ice machine that can produce up to 499 pounds of half-sized ice cubes per day in ideal conditions. The cuber head cabinet measures 30 inches wide, and it will require a bin, beverage dispenser, or hotel ice dispenser of equal width or a bin with a top adapter. Ice-O-Matic has designed the ICE0400HT with a top air discharge vent instead of a side discharge vent. This means that the Ice-O-Matic ICE0400HT does not require additional side clearance and therefore can easily be installed between other equipment or in narrow spaces. The ICE0400HT is ideal for small to moderate foodservice businesses, since it has only a moderate daily ice output of just under 500 pounds (which works out to be approximately 21 pounds of ice every hour).
The half cube ice produced by the Ice-O-Matic ICE0400HT is often used in dispensing applications or for retail beverages. Half Cube ice measures 7/8" x 7/8" x 3/8". The smaller half-sized cube means more ice per glass, which increases liquid displacement and decreases beverage per glass. When considering installation, note that the Ice-O-Matic ICE0400HT operates with a simple 115V outlet. It also requires a water line in, and a drain (either a floor drain or a drain pump) for purge water. However, what separates this ice machine model from other air-cooled ice machines is that it makes use of Ice-O-Matic's top air discharge, which is an efficient configuration when space is limited. The Ice-O-Matic ICE0400HT uses only 25 gallons of water for every 100 LB of ice it produces. It has a limited amount of purged water per ice-making cycle. In all other respects, it is identical to the ICE0400HA model.
Ice-O-Matic has included their Harvest Assist technology in the ICE0400HT. Harvest assist helps release ice from the evaporator plate surface more quickly, meaning the ice-making cycle is shorter, saving you time and electricity each ice-making cycle. In addition, the growth of bacteria, slime, and fungus on internal surfaces that come into contact with water or ice is reduced due to Ice-O-Matic's built-in antimicrobial compound called AgIon.
