The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW-CD40030 is a combination of the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW water-cooled full cube ice machine and the CD40030 hotel ice dispenser. The ICE0500FW is designed to be mounted upon the CD40030 dispenser.
The 30" wide Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW cuber head is only 20" tall. The ICE0500FW ice machine is capable of producing 540 pounds of Full-sized cube ice in a day. The Full Sized Cube measures 7/8" x 7/8" x 7/8" and is commonly used for retail beverages since it take a little longer to melt than smaller cubes. Full cube ice is also popular for ice bagging applications because of its larger size.
Installation requirements for the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW are a 115-volt electrical connection plus 2 incoming water lines (one water line must be potable for making the ice and the other line is required to cool the condenser). Because it is a water-cooled ice machine, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW will use a significant amount of water (an additional 132 gallons of water per 100 LB of ice produced will be flushed). The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW therefore requires an external drain that can handle a high volume of water, since both purged water from each ice making cycle AND the water that cooled the condenser must be drained. However, one of the benefits to water-cooled models is that the surrounding area will be cooler since there is no hot air discharge as in an air-cooled model. Water-cooled ice machines also don't require any side vent clearances, so the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW will fit in business locations with limited space or even between other pieces of equipment.
The Ice-O-Matic CD40030 Hotel Ice Dispenser is a 30 inch wide unit with built-in ice storage. The dispenser unit stands at 54 inches tall by itself. The Ice-O-Matic CD40030 hotel ice dispenser can store up to 180 pounds of ice at any one time, so your customers will always have ice. The dispenser has push activation feature, a large dispensing chute, and a wide ice filling area to make it easier for your guests. In addition, with Ice-O-Matic's Turbo Dispense technology, you can dispense ice at a speed of 1/4 pound of ice per second. The CD40030's exterior is smudge and fingerprint proof for the busy vending location. For installation, note that the Ice-O-Matic CD40030 requires a 115-Volt, 60Hz, 1-Phase electrical power source. The dispenser's location requires an external drain for water from melted ice (you can use the same external drain for both the cuber head and the hotel ice dispenser).
The ICE0500FW-CD40030 equipment combination stands 74 inches high. Both units are 30 inches wide. With these external dimensions, plus the 540 LB daily ice production rate and the 180 LB bin capacity, the ICE0500FW-CD40030 cuber/dispenser combo would work well for a business with moderate daily ice requirements and restricted space for installation.
