The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW-B55PS is a combination of the ICE0500FW ice machine and the B55PS storage bin. The 30" wide ICE0500FW cuber head is designed to be mounted on top of the 30" wide B55PS bin.
The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW ice maker is only 20" tall. The ICE0500FW can produce up to 540 pounds of Full-sized cube ice every 24 hours. The Full-Sized Cube that the ICE0500FW makes measures 7/8" x 7/8" x 7/8". Because of the size of these cubes, they are often used for "on-the-rocks" drinks because they are slow to melt, resulting in less beverage dilution for your customers. Full Cubes are also used in ice bagging applications because of their size.
Note that two of the benefits to water-cooled models is there will be no hot air vented into the surrounding area and the unit won't need any side vent clearances. However, because it is a water-cooled ice machine, The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW needs 2 incoming water lines, one potable water line for making the ice and one water line for cooling the condenser. The ICE0500FW will use a large amount of water to cool the condenser (an additional 132 gallons of water per 100 LB of ice produced will be flushed). The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW also requires an external drain, since both purged water from every ice making cycle PLUS the water that cooled the condenser must be drained. Note that the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW requires a 115-volt electrical connection.
The Ice-O-Matic B55PS storage bin is 30 inches wide with a storage capacity of up to 510 LB of ice. That is over 22 hours of ice production from the ICE0500FW. The B55PS storage bin by itself stands a total of 50" high". The Ice-O-Matic B55PS is constructed with a stainless steel exterior and an inner polyethylene bin liner. Between the two walls is a layer of foam insulation. The B55PS has a plastic flip up bin door. Plus the B55PS model bin comes with a built-in ice scoop holder so you will always know where it is when you need ice. For keeping your bin free of standing water, a bin drain is located in the back and can utilize the same external drain as the cuber head.
The entire ICE0500FW-B55PS equipment combination measures only 70" high and 30" wide. With these compact dimensions, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW-B55PS combo would be a suitable choice for a business with a moderate daily ice requirements and limited physical space for installation.
