The Ice-O-Matic ICE0605FA is an air-cooled ice machine that can produce up to 636 pounds of ice per day in ideal conditions (up to 26.5 pounds of ice per hour). The ICE0605FA produces Full Cube ice - the perfect ice style for use in mixed drinks, soft drinks, and other iced beverages. The Full Cube that the ICE0605FA makes measures 7/8" x 7/8" x 7/8". The larger cube takes longer to melt, which means there is less dilution of any beverage you use it for, particularly "on-the-rocks" beverages in bar applications.
With an air cooled condenser, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0605FA is more susceptible to increases in water and air temperatures, but it does use less water than water cooled ice machines. The cuber head is constructed with a stainless steel front exterior with fingerprint-proof plastic exterior side panels for durability. The ICE0605FA measures 30 inches wide and 20 inches high which makes it a good choice for locations with limited installation space. It requires a 230 volt, 50Hz electrical hookup, which is common in European locations. Note that the ICE0605FA cuber head has an air-cooled condenser which will require a minimum of 6" of clearance in the back and 6" on the right side for air intake and exhaust vents. Given its above average ice production, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0605FA is a quality ice machine for businesses with moderate daily ice requirements.
Besides the specific electrical requirements, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0605FA needs an incoming potable water line for making ice, and an external drain (either a floor drain or a drain pump). The ICE0605FA cuber head also needs to be mounted on an ice storage bin, a beverage dispenser, or an ice dispenser. Ice-O-Matic designed the ICE0606FA cuber head to use only 22 gallons of water for every 100 LB of ice it makes. In addition, Ice-O-Matic has incorporated its Harvest-Assist technology to quickly remove ice from the evaporator plate. Harvest-Assist shortens the ice-making cycle, meaning less time and energy spent over the life of the ICE0605FA. Plus, as an extra protection against the growth of biological contaminants, Ice-O-Matic has integrated the AgION antimicrobial compound into the surfaces of components that contact water or ice.
