The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA-B55PS is a 30" wide air-cooled ice maker combined with an ice storage bin. The equipment combo includes two separate pieces designed to be configured with the ice cuber head mounted on the storage bin.
The ICE0500FA ice machine's cabinet is only 20" high and is considered a low profile unit. Since the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA is an air-cooled unit, it requires a minimum of 6" of air vent clearance on the right side and the back for proper air circulation. The ice machine has a production rate of up to 565 pounds of full cube ice in a 24-hour period. Since full-sized cube ice the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA produces measures 7/8" wide x 7/8" deep x 7/8" high, it takes a longer time to melt. For this reason, the larger, full-sized cubes are often used for "on-the-rocks" beverages or for retail ice bagging applications. Note that the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA requires a 115 volt electrical connection, plus a potable incoming water line. It also needs an external water drain for any water purged at the end of each ice-making cycle. The ice machine only uses 19 gallons of water for every 100 pounds of ice it makes. In addition, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA uses Harvest-Assist technology, allowing quicker removal of ice from the evaporator surface. This saves you both time and electricity every ice-making cycle, helping the ICE0500FA to earn an ENERGY STAR rating.
The Ice-O-Matic B55PS storage bin is 30" wide and a total of 50" high, including the adjustable 6" legs. The bin can hold up to 510 pounds of ice. Ice-O-Matic has designed the B55PS with a stainless steel exterior and a polyethylene bin liner. A layer of foam insulation has been injected in between the inner and outer bin walls. The bin door on the front is made from plastic and flips up for easy access to the ice. Note: A bin drain is located at the back of the B55PS to remove any standing water.
The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA-B55PS equipment combo is constructed from corrosion resistant stainless steel and fingerprint proof plastic, making it a durable choice. With the 20" high ICE0500FA cuber head mounted on top of the B55PS bin, the total height of the equipment combination is only 70" high. With these external dimensions, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA-B55PS cuber head and bin combo would be a good fit for businesses with a moderate daily ice requirement and space restrictions.
