The Ice-O-Matic ICE0606HA-B55PS is an air-cooled ice machine mounted on an ice storage bin. The combo is actually two separate pieces of equipment designed to be installed together.
The Ice-O-Matic ICE0606HA ice machine has a production rate of approximately 650 pounds of Half Cube ice every 24 hours. The half cube ice that the Ice-O-Matic ICE0606HA makes measures 7/8" wide x 7/8" deep x 3/8" high. Half cube ice is suitable for dispensing applications, since the smaller cubes are less likely to jam the dispenser. Half Cube ice is also popular for retail beverages. Since more of the smaller cubes can fit in a glass, there is less beverage per serving.
For installation purposes, note that the Ice-O-Matic ICE0606HA requires a 115 volt electrical connection, a potable water line in, and a drain for the purged water from each ice-making cycle. The ice maker only utilized 19.5 gallons of water for every 100 pounds of ice it produces which works out to just under 127 gallons of water per day for a full day's operation. In addition, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0606HA uses Harvest-Assist technology to quickly remove ice from the evaporator plate. The Harvest-Assist shortens each ice-making cycle so that you use less electricity. The ICE0606HA uses 5.0 kWH of electricity for every 100 LB of ice made. The minimal water and electrical consumption helps make the ICE0606HA an ENERGY STAR rated ice machine.
The Ice-O-Matic ICE0606HA cuber head's cabinet is 30" wide and only 20" high. The ICE0606HA ice machine is an air-cooled unit, so the manufacturer requires that there is a minimum of 6" of air circulation clearance on the right side and the back for air intake and exhaust vents.
The Ice-O-Matic B55PS storage bin has a capacity of 510 pounds of ice. The bin is 30" wide and a total of 50" high, with the 6" legs attached. Ice-O-Matic has constructed the B55PS bin with a stainless steel exterior and a polyethylene bin liner, with a layer of foam insulation injected between them. For easy front access to scoop ice, the bin door flips up. Note: A bin drain is located at the back of the B55PS so that any water from ice that has melted can drain out.
The Ice-O-Matic ICE0606HA-B55PS equipment combo is a smart choice for a business with a moderate daily ice requirement. With the low profile ICE0606HA cuber head mounted on top of the B55PS storage bin, the height of the equipment combination is less than 6 feet at only 70 inches high. With these compact external dimensions, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0606HA-B55PS cuber head and bin combo would work well for a location with restrictions on the space they are to be installed.
