The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW-B55PS is a combination of the ICE0500FW water-cooled full cube ice machine and the B55PS storage bin. The ICE0500FW is designed to be mounted on top of the B55PS bin.
The 30" wide Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW cuber head is only 20" tall. The ICE0500FW can produce up to 540 pounds of Full-sized cube ice every 24 hours. The Full-Sized Cube measures 7/8" x 7/8" x 7/8" and is often used for bar beverages because it takes longer to melt and thus there is less beverage dilution. Full Cubes are also used in ice bagging applications. Note that for proper installation, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW requires a 115-volt electrical connection. The cuber head also needs 2 incoming water lines, one potable water line for making the ice and one water line for cooling the condenser. Because it is a water-cooled ice machine, the ICE0500FW will use a large amount of water (an additional 132 gallons of water per 100 LB of ice produced will be flushed). The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW also requires an external drain, since both purged water from each ice making cycle AND the water that cooled the condenser must be drained. Note that two of the benefits to water-cooled models is there will be no hot air vented into the surrounding area and the unit won't need any side vent clearances. Therefore, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW would work well if you have a limited space for installation.
The Ice-O-Matic B55PS storage bin is 30 inches wide with a storage capacity of up to 510 LB of ice which means it can hold up to almost a full day of ice production from the ICE0500FW. The B55PS storage bin by itself stands a total of 50" high with the adjustable legs measuring 6". Ice-O-Matic built the B55PS with a stainless steel exterior and an inner polyethylene liner with a layer of foam insulation between the walls. The B55PS has a plastic flip up bin door on the front for access to your ice. Plus the B55PS model bin comes with a built-in ice scoop holder so you don't have to go searching for the scoop. There is also a bin drain to remove any water from melting ice.
With the low profile cuber head sitting on top of the storage bin, the entire ICE0500FW-B55PS equipment combination measures only 70" high. With these dimensions, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW-B55PS combo makes a great choice for a business with a moderate ice requirement and limited space for installation.
