The Ice-O-Matic ICE1806HR is a remote air cooled ice machine that can create up to 1617 pounds of half size ice cubes on a daily basis when temperatures are ideal. This is one of Ice-O-Matic's larger ice machines, measuring 48 inches wide, so it requires a bit of space to operate effectively. The half size ice cubes produced are perfect for keeping beverages cool, as they melt slowly and displace a lot of liquid. The remote air cooled condenser of the ICE1806HR can be placed outside and away from your building to provide a better operating environment for your ice machine. As an air cooled ice machine, you can expect the cost of operation to remain low, but you can also expect your ice machine to be more sensitive to changes in air and water temperatures. This is why a remote air cooled condenser improves ice production and provides more consistent ice production. The ICE1806HR operates via a 208-230V electrical hookup. Like all Ice-O-Matic ice machines, the ICE1806HR features Ice-O-Matic's Pure Ice and Harvest Assist technologies which provide more consistent ice making and higher quality ice. With its high daily output, and conservative consumption of resources, the Ice-O-Matic ICE1806HR is a smart choice for those that require an ice machine to produce a great amount of ice on a daily basis.
