The Ice-O-Matic CIM0636HA-B40PS is a 30" wide air-cooled ice machine mounted on an ice storage bin. The combo is actually two separate pieces of equipment designed to be installed together.
The Ice-O-Matic CIM0636HA ice machine has a production rate of approximately 650 pounds of Half Cube ice every 24 hours, which works out to 27 pounds of ice dropping into the B40PS bin every hour of operation. The half cube ice that the Ice-O-Matic CIM0636HA makes measures 7/8" wide x 7/8" deep x 3/8" high. With its smaller size, half cube ice is suitable for dispensing applications, since it is less likely to jam the dispenser. Half Cube ice is also popular for retail beverages. Since more of the smaller cubes can fit in a glass, there is less beverage per serving.
For installation purposes, note that the Ice-O-Matic CIM0636HA requires a 115 volt electrical connection, a potable water line in, and a drain for any mineral-laden water left over at the end of each ice-making cycle. The ice maker only utilized 19 gallons of water for every 100 pounds of ice it produces. In addition, the Ice-O-Matic CIM0636HA uses Harvest-Assist technology to quickly dislodge ice from the evaporator surface, which shortens each ice-making cycle so that you use less electricity. The minimal water and electrical consumption helps make the CIM0636HA an ENERGY STAR rated ice machine. The Ice-O-Matic CIM0636HA cuber head's cabinet is only 20" high. The CIM0636HA ice machine is an air-cooled unit, so when installing the unit, be certain that there is a minimum of 6" of air circulation clearance on the right side and the back for air intake and exhaust vents.
The Ice-O-Matic B40PS storage bin is 30" wide like the CIM0636HA cuber head and it has a storage capacity of 344 pounds of ice. The B40PS storage bin is a total of 37.5" high by itself, including the 6" of the legs. Ice-O-Matic has constructed the B40PS bin with a durable stainless steel exterior and an easy-to-clean polyethylene bin liner. To preserve your ice, there is a layer of foam insulation between the inner and outer bin walls. For easy ice scooping, you only need to flip up the plastic bin door on the front of the bin. Note that the Ice-O-Matic B40PS has a bin drain located at the back of the unit so that any water from melted ice can be drained (The bin and the CIM0636HA cuber head can use the same external drain).
With the CIM0636HA ice machine cuber head mounted on the B40PS bin, the equipment combination reaches 57.5" high, so it is considered to be a low profile configuration. The compact dimensions make the Ice-O-Matic CIM0636HA-B40PS cuber head and bin combo a smart choice for locations with limited space.
