The Ice-O-Matic ICE0400FW-CD40030 is a water-cooled modular ice machine combined with a hotel ice dispenser. The equipment combination comes as two separate equipment pieces and is designed for the ice machine cuber head to be mounted on the dispenser.
The Ice-O-Matic ICE0400FW cuber head has a production rate of up to 496 pounds of full cube ice in a 24 hour period, which works out to just under 21 pounds of ice per hour. The cuber head is 30 inches wide and only 20 inches high. The Ice-O-Matic ICE0400FW is a water-cooled model, and therefore will utilize a significant amount of water. In addition to the 28.8 gallons of water used to make 100 pounds of ice, there is an additional 148 gallons of water used to transfer the heat from the condenser. This condenser water is warm and is considered waste water which is flushed at the end of the ice-making cycle. Therefore, a drain is required for the ICE0400FW's large volume of daily waste water (nearly 600 gallons per day if the ice machine produces to its full capacity). However, Ice-O-Matic has also included its Harvest-Assist technology in the ICE0400FW to more quickly remove ice from the evaporator surface, which means each ice-making cycle is shorter, saving you a bit of time and electricity. With a water-cooled condenser, there is no need for cooling fans, so there is less electrical consumption and no hot air is vented into the surrounding area. The full-sized cube ice produced by the Ice-O-Matic ICE0400FW measures 7/8" x 7/8" x 7/8". Since Full-sized cubes are larger, they take longer to melt and are therefore often used for retail beverages or for bagging ice. For installation, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0400FW does require a 115-volt electrical connection, a potable water line in, another water line in for cooling the condenser, and a drain for both the mineral-laden water that didn't freeze at the end of each ice-making cycle and the condenser waste water.
The Ice-O-Matic CD40030 Hotel Ice Dispenser is a 30 inch wide hotel ice dispenser with a built-in storage bin. The dispenser unit stands at 54 inches tall. The 30-inch wide, 20-inch tall ICE0400FW cuber head would fit on top. The Ice-O-Matic CD40030 takes up minimal space, allowing convenient ice-dispensing in a compact hotel vending alcove or other location with minimal space. The Ice-O-Matic CD40030 can store up to 180 pounds of ice. The Ice-O-Matic CD40030 has a push activation feature, a large dispensing chute, and a wide ice filling area that can accommodate nearly any size ice bucket. In addition, Ice-O-Matic's Turbo Dispense technology dispenses at a speed of a 1/4 pound of ice per second. The CD40030 hotel ice dispenser's exterior is smudge and fingerprint proof and can withstand heavy use. Note that the Ice-O-Matic CD40030 also requires 115 Volt, 60Hz, 1-Phase electrical power source. The installation location also requires a drain for water from ice that may have melted in the dispenser's bin (you can use the same drain for both the mounted cuber head and the ice dispenser).
Together the ICE0400FW and the CD40030 equipment combination stand 74 inches high. Both units are 30 inches wide and fit together as if one unit. With these physical dimensions, plus the 496 LB daily ice production rate and the 180 LB bin capacity, the ICE0400FW-CD40030 equipment combo would work well for a hotel or business with limited wall space and moderate ice requirements.
