The Ice-O-Matic ICE0806HW-B55PS is a combination of the ICE0806HW water-cooled Full Cube ice machine and the B55PS storage bin. The ICE0806HW is designed to be mounted on top of the B55PS bin.
The Ice-O-Matic ICE0806HW cuber head is 26" tall and 30" wide. The ICE0806HW is capable of producing 898 pounds of Full Cube ice every 24 hours. The Half Cube that the ICE0806HW produces measures 3/8" x 7/8" x 7/8". For use with retail beverages, the half cube is a cost-effective choice, since more half cube ice can fit in each glass, so less liquid is sold in each serving.
The Ice-O-Matic ICE0806HW requires a 208-230 volt, 60Hz, 1-phase electrical connection, plus 2 incoming water lines at the installation location. One incoming line is for making ice (approximately 23.1 gallons of water for every 100 pounds of ice). The second water line is for cooling the condenser. The ICE0806HW's condenser unfortunately uses an additional 112 gallons of water per 100 pounds of ice produced. All of that condenser water will be flushed (up to 1005 gallons on a full day of ice-making). The installation location will require an external drain that can handle that high volume of water. One of the benefits of the ICE0806HW water-cooled ice machine is that there will be no hot air discharged into the installation location. Also, water-cooled models don't need any side clearances, so the Ice-O-Matic ICE0806HW can be installed in narrow spaces, including between other foodservice equipment.
The Ice-O-Matic B55PS storage bin is 30" wide with a storage capacity of 510 pounds of ice. The B55PS storage bin stands a total of 50" high with its 6" legs attached. Ice-O-Matic has constructed the B55PS with a stainless steel exterior, and an inner polyethylene liner, with a layer of foam insulation between the liner and the exterior cabinet. The plastic bin door on the front flips up so you can easily scoop your ice. Plus the B55PS model bin comes with a convenient built-in ice scoop holder. Note that there is a drain at the back of the bin for removing standing water (You can use the same drain for the bin and the cuber head's condenser water).
With the cuber head mounted on the storage bin, the ICE0806HW-B55PS equipment combination measures 76" high. The combo essentially makes 898 pounds of ice a day and stores 510 pounds of ice at any one time. The Ice-O-Matic ICE0806HW-B55PS combo would therefore be a suitable ice machine for a business with a moderate daily ice requirements.
