The self-contained Ice-O-Matic ICEU300HW undercounter ice maker produces up to 356 pounds of Half Cube ice every 24 hours (under optimal temperature conditions of 70 degrees F Air and 50 degrees F Water). Ice is created at a rate of nearly 15 pounds per hour, making the ICEU300HW ideal for many medium-sized foodservice businesses. And with the 112-pound built-in storage bin of the Ice-O-Matic ICEU300HW means that you will have plenty of ice on hand.
The ICEU300HW's Half Cube measures 3/8" by 7/8" by 7/8". More half-sized cubes can fit in a glass, for greater liquid displacement, making the Half Cube popular with retailers of beverages. The smaller half cube is often chosen for using in ice dispensers since there is less chance the cubes will jam the dispensing mechanism. It is also an appropriate cube for use in blended beverages since the cube won't get lodged under the blender blades.
The Ice-O-Matic ICEU300HW's water-cooled condenser means the ice machine does not need cooling fans or vents, so no additional side clearances are necessary with the undercounter unit. The unit will run more quietly and there will be no hot air discharged into the surrounding area. Note that the ICEU300HW will use more water than an air-cooled ice machine (up to 175 gallons of water for every 100 pounds of ice it makes) and the ice maker will all of that water draining out of the unit each day.
For installation, the ICEU300HW will require a 115-volt electrical power source, two incoming water lines and an external drain that can handle the volume of water regularly flushed by the ice machine. The Ice-O-Matic ICEU300HW is just 30 inches wide, so you can install this ice machine in narrow areas without any regard for clearance on the sides. In addition, the ICEU300HW is only 39 inches tall (with the standard 6 inch legs attached) and it will fit under most standard commercial counters.
Ice-O-Matic has included its Harvest Assist technology in the ICEU300HW to help remove ice from the evaporator more quickly. Lastly, only electro-mechanical controls are included on the Ice-O-Matic ICEU300HW, so there are no complex digital controls or expensive displays to increase your cost at purchase or to potentially malfunction, costing you money over the life of the ice machine.
