The Ice-O-Matic ICE0806FR is a remote air-cooled ice machine that produces up to 913 pounds of full ice cubes on a daily basis. Full Cube ice measures 7/8" by 7/8" by 7/8" and because of its larger size, it will take a bit longer to melt. The Full Cube made by the ICE0806FR makes an ideal choice for using in retail beverages, particularly high-end "on-the-rocks" drinks in bar applications. With the Full Cube, each beverage can be cooled with less dilution of the flavor.
The remote condenser used by the ICE0806FR can be placed outside, on the roof or away from your building. This allows the Ice-O-Matic ICE0806FR to operate more consistently in higher temperatures. The remote condenser also means that there is no hot air being discharged into your surroundings. Plus the remote condenser of the ICE0806FR results in a quieter working environment where your ice machine is installed.
When considering which ice machine model will fit in your location, note that the Ice-O-Matic ICE0806FR stands 26 inches tall and measures just over 30 inches wide. It will require being mounted on another piece of equipment such as an ice storage bin, a beverage dispenser, or an ice dispenser, which all have built-in ice storage capacity. The Ice-O-Matic ICE0806FR operates with a 208-230 volt electrical hookup and will require one incoming water line for making ice. The cuber head will also purge some water at the end of each ice-making cycle, so your installation location will need to have a drain of some kind, either a gravity floor drain or a drain pump assembly for removing that purged water.
With a relatively high daily output, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0806FR is a great ice machine for establishments with mid to upper level ice requirements. Plus, with a remote-located condenser, this cuber head won't impact your customers or employees with either heat or noise. This makes the quiet, unobtrusive Ice-O-Matic ICE0806FR work well in the hotel ice vending alcove or mounted on top of a beverage dispenser located in the dining area where customers self-serve.
All Ice-O-Matic ice machines, including the ICE0806FR, feature Ice-O-Matic's unique Harvest Assist and Pure Ice technologies. Harvest Assist helps dislodge ice from the evaporator more quickly, assuring reliable ice production and allowing the ICE0806FR to operate smoothly, while using less electricity. Ice-O-Matic's Pure Ice features incorporate the AgION antimicrobial compound into the internal surfaces of the ICE0806FR that touch water and ice, helping to provide pure, high quality ice.
