The Ice-O-Matic ICE0400HW-B40PS is a combination of the Ice-O-Matic ICE0400HW water-cooled half cube ice machine and the B55PS storage bin. The 30" wide Ice-O-Matic ICE0400HW ice machine can produce up to 496 pounds of half-sized cube ice every 24 hours. The cuber head is only 20" tall and does not require any additional clearance above the unit or on the sides. The ICE0400HW produces full-sized cubes that measure 7/8" x 7/8" x 3/8". Half cubes are ideal for dispensing applications since the smaller cube is less likely to jam the dispenser mechanism. With half cube ice, more cubes can fit in each glass, so half cube ice is popular with beverage retailers since there is more liquid displacement per glass. Note that the Ice-O-Matic ICE0400HW requires a 115 volt electrical connection, two incoming water lines (one for making ice and one for cooling the condenser), and an external drain for both the purged water remaining after each ice making cycle PLUS the water that was used to transfer the heat from the condenser. Therefore, since it is a water-cooled ice machine, the ICE0400HW will use and flush an additional 148 gallons of water for every 100 LB of ice produced. However, the primary benefits to water-cooled ice machines are there will be no hot air vented into the surrounding area and no side clearance for intake and exhaust vents is required. Therefore, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0400HW would suit a business location with limited wall space or pre-existing high room temperature conditions.
The Ice-O-Matic B55PS storage bin is 30" wide like the cube head. The storage bin can hold up to 510 LB of ice. The B55PS measures 50" high by itself, including the adjustable 6" legs. The Ice-O-Matic B55PS is constructed with a stainless steel exterior and an inner polyethylene bin liner. A layer of foam insulation is inserted between the two surfaces to better preserve your ice. The plastic bin door is located on the front of the bin and flips up for easy access for scooping ice. The Ice-O-Matic B55PS also includes a bin drain, located at the back of the bin, which prevents accumulation of water from melted ice. This means there is less chance that bacteria or other organisms might grow in the bin.
Both pieces of the Ice-O-Matic ICE0400HW-B55PS combo are constructed from corrosion resistant stainless steel and a fingerprint proof plastic. The low profile ICE0400HW cuber head mounts on top of the bin, so the total height of the ICE0400FW-B55PS equipment combination is 70" high. Both of these pieces of equipment are 30" wide. If your business has a moderate daily ice requirement and limited wall space or low ceiling height, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0400FW-B40PS cuber head/storage bin combo would be a good fit
