The Ice-O-Matic ICE0400FW-B40PS is a combination of the Ice-O-Matic ICE0400FW water-cooled full cube ice machine and the B40PS storage bin. The 30" wide Ice-O-Matic ICE0400FW cuber head is capable of producing 496 pounds of Full-sized cube ice in a day. The ice machine is only 20" tall and does not require any additional clearance above the unit. The Full Sized Cube that the ICE0400FW produces measures 7/8" x 7/8" x 7/8" and is commonly used for beverages and ice bagging applications. The Ice-O-Matic ICE0400FW requires a 115-volt electrical connection, a potable water line in, a second incoming water line for the condenser, and an external drain for both the purged water from each ice making cycle AND for the circulated water used to cool the condenser. Because it is a water-cooled ice machine, the ICE0400FW will use significantly more water than a comparable air-cooled model (an additional 148 gallons of water per 100 LB of ice produced will be flushed). However, two of the benefits to water-cooled models is there will be no hot air discharged into the surrounding area and the unit will not require any side clearances for a vent. Therefore, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0400FW would work well if you have a narrow 30-inch wide space for installation.
The Ice-O-Matic B40PS storage bin is also 30 inches wide with a storage capacity of up to 344 LB of ice. The storage bin by itself is a total of 37.5" high with the adjustable legs measuring at 6". The Ice-O-Matic B40PS is constructed with a stainless steel exterior and an inner polyethylene liner with a layer of foam insulation between. The B40PS bin door is molded plastic and flips up for easy access to ice for scooping. A bin drain for any melted ice is located at the back of the unit, so your bin remains free of any standing water where organisms might grow.
With the low profile ICE0400FW cuber head sitting on top of the bin, the total height of the ICE0400FW-B40PS equipment combination is only 57.5" high. Both of these pieces of equipment are 30 inches wide. With these dimensions, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0400FW-B40PS cuber head/storage bin combo is ideal for businesses with a moderate daily ice requirement plus overhead space and wall space restrictions.
