The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW-CD40130 is a combination of the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW water-cooled full cube ice machine and the CD40130 hotel ice and water dispenser. The ICE0500FW is designed to be mounted upon the CD40130.
The 30" wide Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW cuber head is only 20" tall. The ICE0500FW modular ice machine is capable of producing 540 pounds of Full-sized cube ice in a day. Ice-O-Matic's Full-Sized Cube measures 7/8" x 7/8" x 7/8". Since they are larger, they take a little longer to melt than smaller cubes. Therefore, Full Cube ice is often used for high-end retail beverages since there will be less dilution of the drink.
For installation, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW will need a 115-volt electrical connection plus 2 incoming water lines. One potable water line will be for making the ice and the other water line will provide water to cool the condenser. Note that water-cooled ice machines such as the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW use a lot more water (an additional 132 gallons of water per every 100 LB of ice produced). The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW therefore requires an external drain that can handle a high volume of water, since both purged water AND condenser water must be drained. However, a major benefit of water-cooled models is that there is no hot air discharged into the area. Also, since water-cooled cuber heads don't have side vents, and they don't require any side clearances, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500FW will fit into narrow spaces, including directly adjacent to other equipment.
The Ice-O-Matic CD40130 Hotel Ice and Water Dispenser is 30 inches wide and 54 inches tall with built-in ice storage. The Ice-O-Matic CD40130 hotel ice dispenser can store up to 180 pounds of ice at any one time, so ice will be readily available. As an added benefit the CD40130 model also dispenses water. This will mean you need a potable water line for the water dispenser as well. The dispenser utilizes push activation, a large dispensing chute, and a wide ice and water filling area, so your customers can easily dispense ice and water. Plus with Ice-O-Matic's Turbo Dispense technology, ice can be dispensed at a speed of 1/4 pound of ice per second, so no long lines or waiting for ice. For installation purposes, the Ice-O-Matic CD40130 requires a 115-Volt, 60Hz, 1-Phase electrical power source. The dispenser's location also needs an external drain for water in the dispenser's bin (the same external drain for both the ICE0500FW cuber head and the hotel ice dispenser can be used).
The ICE0500FW-CD40130 equipment combination stands 74 inches high and 30 inches wide. The ICE0500FW-CD40130 cuber/dispenser combo would work well for a business with moderate daily ice requirements and restricted space for installation and with the added water dispensing your vending location will become a one-stop destination for your customers.
