The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA-B40PS is a 30" wide air-cooled ice maker with a production rate of up to 565 pounds of full cube ice in a 24-hour period combined with an ice storage bin. The equipment combo requires the ice cuber head to be mounted on the storage bin.
The ice machine cabinet is only 20" high and is considered a low profile unit. Since the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA is an air-cooled unit, it does require a minimum of 6" of air vent clearance on the right side and the back for proper air circulation. The full-sized cube ice the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA produces takes a longer time to melt, since full cube ice measures 7/8" wide x 7/8" deep x 7/8" high. The larger, full-sized cubes are often used for on-the-rocks beverages or for ice bagging applications. For proper installation, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA requires a 115 volt electrical connection, plus a potable incoming water line. It also needs a drain for any purged water from the end of each ice-making cycle. In addition, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA uses Harvest-Assist technology, allowing quicker removal of ice from the evaporator surface. This saves you both time and electricity every ice-making cycle, over the life of the unit, which helps it earn its ENERGY STAR qualified rating.
The Ice-O-Matic B40PS ice storage bin has a 344 pound ice storage capacity and the unit is 30" wide. By itself, the storage bin is a total of 37.5" high, including the adjustable 6" legs. Ice-O-Matic has designed the B40PS with a stainless steel exterior and an inner polyethylene bin liner. There is a layer of foam insulation between, to help preserve your ice for long periods. The molded plastic bin door flips up for easy access to your ice. In addition, there is a bin drain located at the back of the unit, to allow any standing water to drain out.
With the low profile ICE0500FA cuber head mounted on the B40PS storage bin, the total height of the equipment combination is only 57.5" high. With these compact dimensions, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA-B40PS cuber head and bin combo is ideal for businesses with a moderate daily ice requirement (up to 565 pounds of ice) and limits to their installation space.
