The Ice-O-Matic CIM0530HW-CD40030 is a combination of the Ice-O-Matic CIM0530HW water-cooled half cube ice machine and the CD40030 hotel ice dispenser. The CIM0530HW is designed to be mounted upon the CD40030 dispenser.
The 30" wide Ice-O-Matic CIM0530HW cuber head is only 20" tall. The CIM0530HW ice machine is capable of producing 540 pounds of Half cube ice in a day. The Half-Sized Cube measures 7/8" x 7/8" x 3/8". Because of their smaller size, half cubes are often used in retail beverages since more of the half cubes can fit in a glass, resulting in less liquid per serving. Half cube ice is often used in dispenser applications and in blended drinks because the small cubes are less likely to jam equipment.
The Ice-O-Matic CIM0530HW requires a 115-volt electrical connection plus 2 incoming water lines (one potable water line for ice making and the other line for cooling the condenser). Ice machines with water-cooled condensers, use a significant amount of water (an additional 132 gallons of water per 100 LB of ice produced). The Ice-O-Matic CIM0530HW therefore needs an external drain that can handle a high volume of water. However, one of the main benefits to water-cooled ice makers is that the surrounding area will be cooler since there is no hot air being vented. Water-cooled ice machines also don't need side vent clearance, so the Ice-O-Matic CIM0530HW cuber head can fit in between other pieces of equipment.
The Ice-O-Matic CD40030 Hotel Ice Dispenser is a 30 inch wide unit that stands at 54 inches tall by itself. The Ice-O-Matic CD40030 hotel ice dispenser has a built-in bin that can store up to 180 pounds of ice. The ice dispenser has a push activation feature, a large dispensing chute, and a wide ice-filling area so nearly any ice bucket will fit. In addition, with Ice-O-Matic's Turbo Dispense technology, ice is dispensed at a speed of 1/4 pound of ice per second. The CD40030's exterior is smudge and fingerprint proof for the business with heavy customer use of the dispenser. For installation, note that the Ice-O-Matic CD40030 requires a 115-Volt, 60Hz, 1-Phase electrical power source. The installation location must have an external drain for standing water (you can use the same external drain for both the modular head and the ice dispenser).
The CIM0530HW-CD40030 equipment combination stands 74 inches high and 30 inches wide. With these compact external dimensions, plus the 540 LB daily ice production rate and the 180 LB bin capacity, the CIM0530HW-CD40030 cuber/dispenser combo would be an ideal choice for a business that has a moderate daily ice usage and is limited to a narrow space for installation.
