The Ice-O-Matic CIM0430HW-CD40030 is a water-cooled modular ice machine combined with a hotel ice dispenser. The equipment combination comes as two separate equipment pieces and is designed for the ice machine cuber head to be mounted on the dispenser.
The Ice-O-Matic CIM0430HW cuber head has a production rate of up to 496 pounds of half cube ice in a 24 hour period. This works out to just under 21 pounds of ice per hour being dropped into the CD40030 dispenser's bin. The CIM0430HW cuber head is 30 inches wide and only 20 inches high. The Ice-O-Matic CIM0430HW is a water-cooled model, and therefore will use a large volume of water each day. In addition to the 28.8 gallons of water used to make 100 pounds of ice, there is also the 148 gallons of water used to circulate around the condenser to cool it. This water transfers the heat from the condenser and is considered waste water which gets flushed at the end of the ice-making cycle. Therefore, the Ice-O-Matic CIM0430HW will require a drain for the nearly 600 gallons of waste water per day (if the ice machine produces to its full capacity). However, Ice-O-Matic has also included its Harvest-Assist technology to more quickly remove ice from the evaporator, which means each ice-making cycle is shorter. So the model produces the same amount of ice in a shorter time, saving electricity on each cycle. With a water-cooled condenser, there is also no need for cooling fans, providing an additional reduction in electrical consumption. An added benefit is that no hot air is discharged into the surrounding area.
The half cube ice produced by the Ice-O-Matic CIM0430HW measures 7/8" x 7/8" x 3/8". With half cubes, you have a greater liquid displacement per glass, since you can fit more cubes per glass. For a retailer, this means less beverage per serving, saving money. Half cubes are also ideal for dispensing applications, since the smaller cube is less likely to get jammed in the dispenser. Note that the Ice-O-Matic CIM0430HW does require a 115-volt electrical connection, a potable water line in, a second water line in for cooling the condenser, and a drain for both the leftover water that didn't freeze at the end of each ice-making cycle and the purged condenser waste water.
The Ice-O-Matic CD40030 Hotel Ice Dispenser is a 30 inch wide hotel ice dispenser with a built-in storage bin which can store up to 180 pounds of ice. The dispenser unit stands at 54 inches tall. The 30-inch wide, 20-inch tall CIM0430HW cuber head would fit on top. The Ice-O-Matic CD40030 is small enough to fit in a compact vending alcove. The Ice-O-Matic CD40030 includes push activation dispensing, a large dispensing chute, and a wide ice filling station that can fit most ice buckets. The Turbo Dispense technology allows dispensing at a speed of a 1/4 pound of ice per second. For the business with high customer self-service traffic, the CD40030 hotel ice dispenser's exterior is smudge and fingerprint proof. Like the CIM0430HW cuber head, the Ice-O-Matic CD40030 requires a 115-Volt, 60Hz, 1-Phase electrical power source. The dispenser's installation location also requires a drain for water from ice that may have melted in the dispenser's bin (you can use the same drain for both the CIM0430HW and the ice dispenser).
The CIM0430HW and the CD40030 equipment combination stands 74 inches high. Both units are 30 inches wide and fit together as if one unit. The CIM0430HW-CD40030 equipment combo, with its compact physical dimensions, the 496 LB daily ice production rate and the 180 LB bin capacity, would work well for a business with limited space and moderate daily ice requirements.
