The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HW-B40PS is a combination of the ICE0500HW water-cooled half cube ice machine and the B40PS storage bin. The ICE0500HW is designed to be mounted on top of the B40PS bin.
The 30" wide Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HW cuber head is only 20" tall. The ICE0500HW is capable of producing 540 pounds of Half Cube ice in a day. The Half-Sized Cube produced by the ICE0500HW measures 7/8" x 7/8" x 3/8" and is commonly used in dispenser applications because of its smaller size. Half cubes are also popular for retail beverages since more half cubes can fit in a glass, meaning less beverage product per serving. There are several requirements for proper installation of the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HW. The unit requires a 115-volt electrical connection. Since the model has a water-cooled condenser, the cuber head needs 2 incoming water lines, including a potable water line for making ice and a second incoming water line for cooling the condenser. The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HW will use significantly more water than a comparable air-cooled model (up to 132 additional gallons of water per 100 pounds of ice produced will be flushed). The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HW also requires an external drain at the location that can handle the high volume of water. Purged water from every ice making cycle AND the water that cools the condenser must be drained regularly. However, one of the benefits to water-cooled models is there will be no hot air vented into the surrounding area. Water-cooled ice machines such as the ICE0500HW also do not need any side vent clearances. Therefore, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HW would work well if you only have 30 inches or so left to right for installation.
The Ice-O-Matic B40PS storage bin is 30 inches wide and needs no side clearances. The bin has a storage capacity of up to 344 pounds of ice. The B40PS by itself stands a total of 37.5" high with its 6" adjustable legs. The Ice-O-Matic B40PS is constructed with a stainless steel exterior for durability and a corrosion-proof inner polyethylene liner. Between the inner and outer walls is a layer of foam insulation. The front bin door of the B40PS flips up for access to your ice. Plus the B40PS bin has a built-in ice scoop holder. A bin drain is located at the back of the unit for any melted ice that may accumulate at the bottom of the bin.
With the low profile cuber head properly mounted on the storage bin, the entire ICE0500HW-B40PS equipment combination measures only 57.5" high. Remember that both of these pieces of equipment are 30 inches wide. With these compact dimensions, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HW-B40PS cuber head and bin is a great selection for a business with a moderate ice requirements and limited space for installation.
