The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA-CD40030 is an air-cooled modular ice machine combined with a hotel ice dispenser. This equipment combination comes as two separate equipment pieces and is designed for the ICE0500FA ice machine to be mounted on the CD40030 dispenser.
The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA cuber head has a production rate of up to 565 pounds of full cube ice in a 24 hour period. The cuber head's cabinet is 30 inches wide and only 20 inches high. The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA is an air-cooled model, and therefore requires a minimum of 6" of clearance on the right side and at the back of the unit for proper air circulation, per the manufacturer. The full-sized cube ice produced by the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA measures 7/8" x 7/8" x 7/8". Since Full-sized cubes are larger, they take a bit longer to melt, which reduces the dilution of your beverages. For installation, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA requires a 115 volt electrical connection, a potable water line in, and an external drain for any mineral-laden water that didn't freeze at the end of each ice-making cycle. Ice-O-Matic has also incorporated its Harvest-Assist technology in the ICE0500FA to speed up the removal of ice from the evaporator surface. This means each ice-making cycle is shorter, saving electricity over the life of the unit, earning the ICE0500FA an ENERGY STAR rating.
The Ice-O-Matic CD40030 Hotel Ice Dispenser is a 30 inch wide hotel ice dispenser with its own built-in storage bin. The dispenser unit stands at 54 inches tall by itself. The Ice-O-Matic CD40030 takes up very little wall space, allowing convenient ice-dispensing in a narrow space. The Ice-O-Matic CD40030 can store up to 180 pounds of ice at any one time. The dispenser has a push activation feature, a large dispensing chute, and a wide ice filling area. In addition, Ice-O-Matic's Turbo Dispense technology means that ice can be dispensed at a speed of 1/4 pound of ice per second. Ice-O-Matic has also considered the effects of heavy customer use, so the CD40030 hotel ice dispenser's exterior is smudge and fingerprint proof. For installation, note that the Ice-O-Matic CD40030 requires a 115-Volt, 60Hz, 1-Phase electrical power source. The installation location also requires an external drain for water that ends up at the bottom of the bin (you can use the same drain for both the ICE0500FA cuber head and the CD40030 ice dispenser).
Together the ICE0500FA and the CD40030 equipment combination stands 74 inches high. Both units are 30 inches wide. With these external dimensions, the 565 LB daily ice production rate and the 180 LB bin capacity, the ICE0500FA-CD40030 combo would be a great choice for a business with moderate ice requirements and limited space for installation.
