The Ice-O-Matic ICE0400FW-CD40130 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 cabinet is 30 inches wide and only 20 inches high. Since the Ice-O-Matic ICE0400FW is a water-cooled model, it will use a significant amount of water. The ICE0400FW uses 28.8 gallons of water to make 100 pounds of ice. Plus there is an additional 148 gallons of water used to cool the condenser. The circulated water has been warmed up by the transfer of heat from the condenser and is considered waste water. All of this water 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). To offset the water consumption, Ice-O-Matic has also included its Harvest-Assist technology in the ICE0400FW to quickly remove ice from the evaporator surface. This means each ice-making cycle is shorter, saving you a bit of time and electricity. There are also no cooling fans with a water-cooled condenser, so there is less electrical consumption overall and no hot air is discharged 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 "on-the-rocks" beverages or for bagging ice for retail sale. For installation, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0400FW does require a 115-volt electrical connection, a potable water line in, a second water line in for cooling the condenser, and a drain for both the purged water that didn't freeze at the end of each ice-making cycle and the condenser's waste water.
The Ice-O-Matic CD40130 Hotel Ice Dispenser is a 30-inch wide hotel ice dispenser with a built-in storage bin. The CD40130 model also includes a factory-installed water dispenser. Therefore an additional potable water line will be required for the water dispenser. The Ice-O-Matic CD40130 dispenser unit alone is 54 inches tall. The 30-inch wide, 20-inch tall ICE0400FW cuber head would be mounted on top. The Ice-O-Matic CD40130 takes up minimal space, allowing convenient ice-dispensing in a compact spaces such as a vending alcove. The Ice-O-Matic CD40130's built-in bin can store up to 180 pounds of ice. The Ice-O-Matic CD40130 has a push activation feature, a large ice dispensing chute, and a wide ice filling area that can accommodate most ice buckets. In addition, Ice-O-Matic's has included its Turbo Dispense technology so that ice is dispensed at a speed of a 1/4 pound of ice per second. The CD40130 hotel ice dispenser's exterior is smudge and fingerprint proof. Note that the Ice-O-Matic CD40130 requires a 115-Volt, 60Hz, 1-Phase electrical power source. The dispenser's bin requires a drain for any ice that has melted (you can use the same external drain for both the ICE0400FW and the ice dispenser).
Together the ICE0400FW and the CD40130 equipment combination is 30 inches wide and stands 74 inches high. The ICE0400FW-CD40130 equipment combo has a 496 LB daily ice production rate, an efficient ice and water dispenser, and a 180 LB bin capacity, making it a great choice for any business with moderate daily ice requirements and restricted installation space.
