The Ice-O-Matic ICE0606HW water-cooled modular ice machine produces up to 618 LB of full sized cube ice every 24 hours, which is almost 26 pounds of ice each hour. The cabinet of the ICE0606HW has an Ultra low profile and combines a stainless steel interior and exterior with fingerprint-proof plastic exterior panels for durability and aesthetics. Ice-O-Matic uses electroless nickel plating on the evaporator plate in the ICE0606HW, so that potential damaging effects of water and ice are prevented. Plus, Ice-O-Matic has incorporated the AgION antimicrobial compound into the surfaces of components that come into contact with water or ice, in order to reduce the growth of bacteria and other organisms. Furthermore, the functional design of the Ice-O-Matic ICE0606HW saves space, at 20" high and just over 30" wide. The water-cooled condenser does not require air circulation or clearance on the right side or back for air intake and exhaust vents. Therefore, you can install the Ice-O-Matic ICE0606HW in narrow spaces.
The Half Cube ice that the Ice-O-Matic ICE0606HW produces is smaller (7/8" x 7/8" x 3/8") and is ideal for dispensing applications (smaller cubes are less likely to jam dispensers) and for retail beverages since more ice can fit in each glass (meaning less liquid per serving).
For installation, note that the Ice-O-Matic ICE0606HW requires a 208-230volts, 60Hz, 1-phase electrical connection. It also requires 2 incoming water lines - a potable water line for ice-making and a second incoming water line for cooling the condenser. The ICE0606HW also needs an external drain that can handle the large volume of run off water (purge water left over after ice making AND waste water after it cools the condenser). The Ice-O-Matic ICE0606HW also requires mounting on an ice storage bin, a beverage dispenser, or an ice dispenser to store the ice it produces.
Since the Ice-O-Matic ICE0606HW has a water-cooled condenser, the cuber head will use significantly more water than an air-cooled model. First, it uses 19.5 gallons of water to make each 100 pounds of ice. Then the condenser cooling requires another 140 gallons of water for every 100 pounds of ice produced (Condenser cooling can utilize up to 865 gallons of water on a day of full ice-making). However, there is some saving on electricity, since along with not requiring electricity for cooling fans, Ice-O-Matic has incorporated its Harvest-Assist technology to help remove ice from the evaporator surface more quickly, shortening the ice-making cycle. Therefore, ICE0606HW model only uses 4.2 kWH electricity for every 100 pounds of ice it makes.
