The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA-CD40130 is a 30" wide, air-cooled modular ice machine combined with a hotel ice dispenser. The combo is actually two separate equipment pieces designed to be configured with the cuber head on the dispenser.
The ICE0500FA has a production rate of up to 565 pounds of full cube ice every 24 hours. The cuber head unit cabinet is only 20" high. Since the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA is an air-cooled model, it does require a minimum of 6" of circulation clearance on the right side and the back for the air vents. The full-sized cube ice produced by the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA measures 7/8" wide x 7/8" deep x 7/8" high. The Full-sized cubes take longer to melt due to their size, and so they are popular for retail beverages (less dilution of the drink) or for bagging ice (fewer frozen clumps). The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA is easy to install since it only requires a 115 volt electrical connection, a water line in, and a drain for the purge water at the end of each ice-making cycle. In addition, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FA uses Harvest-Assist technology to quickly remove ice from the evaporator surface, saving time and electricity every ice-making cycle. The ICE0500FA is therefore an ENERGY STAR qualified model.
The Ice-O-Matic CD40130 Hotel Ice Dispenser is a 30-inch wide hotel ice and water dispenser. The CD40130 dispenser unit stands at 54 inches tall. The CD40130 dispenser is not only an ice dispenser. It 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 ice storage bin with a capacity of up to 180 pounds of ice. The Ice-O-Matic CD40130 unit has a compact cabinet, allowing convenient ice and water dispensing in locations with limited 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, which allows ice dispensing at speeds of 1/4 pound of per second. In addition, 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 installation location also requires a drain for water at the bottom of the dispenser's bin (you can use the same external drain for both the cuber head and the ice dispenser).
The ICE0500FA and the CD40130 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-CD40130 combo would be a great choice for a business with moderate ice requirements and limited space for installation.
