The Ice-O-Matic ICE0400HA-CD40130 is an air-cooled modular ice machine that is to be mounted on the hotel ice dispenser. The equipment combination comes as two separate equipment pieces and is designed to be stacked.
The Ice-O-Matic ICE0400HA cuber head has an ice production rate of 505 pounds of full cube ice every day. The ICE0400HA's cabinet is 30 inches wide and 20 inches high. The Ice-O-Matic ICE0400HA has an air-cooled condenser, and therefore the unit requires a minimum of 6 inches of clearance on the right side and at the back of the unit for air vent circulation. The half-sized cube ice that the Ice-O-Matic ICE0400HA makes measures 7/8" x 7/8" x 3/8". Half cube ice is ideal for dispensing applications because their smaller size means it is less likely to jam the dispenser mechanism. The Half sized cubes also are great for making blended drinks since the half cubes are hard enough to stand up to the blender's blades and small enough to keep from jamming under the blender blades and burning out your blender motor. Plus retailers appreciate that more half cubes of ice can fit in each glass, meaning more liquid displacement than a glass of large cube ice.
When considering your installation location, note that the Ice-O-Matic ICE0400HA requires a 115 volt electrical connection, a potable water line in, and a drain for any purge water that didn't freeze at the end of each cycle of ice-making. Ice-O-Matic has included its Harvest-Assist technology in the ICE0400HA cuber head so that ice is released more quickly from the evaporator surface, which saves time and electricity each ice-making cycle.
The Ice-O-Matic CD40130 Hotel Ice Dispenser is a 30-inch wide hotel ice dispenser. The CD40130 dispenser unit stands at 54 inches tall. One of the primary features of the CD40130 dispenser is that it not only dispenses ice but also has a factory-installed water dispensing chute for additional convenience (note that the CD40130 dispenser will require its own incoming potable water line). The hotel ice dispenser has its own built-in storage bin with a capacity of up to 180 pounds of ice at one time. The Ice-O-Matic CD40130 unit takes up very little wall space, allowing convenient ice and water dispensing in locations with minimal wall space. With its push activation feature, a large dispensing chute, and a wide ice-filling area, the CD40130 can accommodate most ice buckets that your customers or employees may use. Ice-O-Matic has also included its Turbo Dispense technology, so ice is dispensed at a speed of 1/4 pound of ice per second. In addition, the CD40130 hotel ice dispenser's exterior is smudge and fingerprint proof so it can stand up to heavy customer traffic. Note that the Ice-O-Matic CD40130 requires a 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 ICE0400HA cuber head and the CD40130 ice dispenser).
With the ICE0400HA cuber head mounted on the CD40130, the equipment combination stands 74 inches high. Both units are 30 inches wide and are designed to sit with one unit atop the other. With these dimensions, the moderate 505 LB daily ice production rate, and the 180 LB bin capacity, the ICE0400HA-CD40130 combo would work well for a business with moderate daily ice requirements and restricted installation space.
