The Ice-O-Matic ICE0400FW-B40PS is a combination of the Ice-O-Matic ICE0400FW water-cooled full cube ice machine and the B55PS storage bin. The 30" wide Ice-O-Matic ICE0400FW ice machine can produce up to 496 pounds of Full-sized cube ice every 24 hours. The cuber head is only 20" tall and does not require any additional clearance above the unit or on the sides. The ICE0400FW produces full-sized cubes that measure 7/8" x 7/8" x 7/8". Full cubes are commonly used for retail beverages and for ice bagging applications. When considering installation, note that the Ice-O-Matic ICE0400FW requires a 115 volt electrical connection, a water line in for making ice, a second water line in for cooling the condenser, and an external drain for both the mineral-laden water remaining after each ice making cycle PLUS the waste water that was used to cool the condenser. Because it is a water-cooled ice machine, the ICE0400FW will use and flush an additional 148 gallons of water per 100 LB of ice produced. However, the benefits to water-cooled models are there will be no hot air discharged into the surrounding area and no side vent clearance is required. Therefore, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0400FW would be a good choice if you have a narrow space for installation.
The Ice-O-Matic B55PS storage bin is also 30" wide and it can hold up to 510 LB of ice. The storage bin measures 50" high by itself, including the adjustable 6" legs. Ice-O-Matic has constructed the B55PS with a stainless steel exterior and an inner polyethylene bin liner. There is a layer of foam insulation between the two surfaces to keep your ice cold. The molded plastic bin door flips up for easy access to your ice. The Ice-O-Matic B55PS includes a bin drain located at the back of the bin to prevent standing water where bacteria or other organisms might grow.
Each piece of the Ice-O-Matic ICE0400FW-B55PS combo is constructed from a corrosion resistant stainless steel and a fingerprint proof plastic which makes them durable as well as easy to clean. With the low profile ICE0400FW cuber head sitting on top of the bin, the total height of the ICE0400FW-B55PS equipment combination is only 70" high. Both of these pieces of equipment are 30" 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.
