The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HA-B55PS is a 30" wide, air-cooled ice machine combined with an ice storage bin. The combo consists of two separate equipment pieces designed to be configured with the ice cuber head mounted on the storage bin.
The ICE0500HA ice machine's cabinet is only 20" high and is considered a low profile unit. Since the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HA is an air-cooled unit, it requires a minimum of 6" of clearance on the right side and the back for proper air circulation at the intake and exhaust vents. The ice machine has a production rate of up to 565 pounds of Half Cube ice in a 24-hour period which means approximately 23.5 pounds of ice fall into the bin each hour. Half-sized cube ice produced by the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HA measures 7/8" wide x 7/8" deep x 3/8" high. Half-sized cubes are often used in dispensing applications or for retail beverages, since the cubes are smaller. For installation, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HA requires a 115 volt electrical connection, plus a potable incoming water line. The cuber head also needs an external drain for any water purged at the end of each ice-making cycle. Note that the ice maker only uses 19 gallons of water for every 100 pounds of ice it produces. In addition, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HA uses Harvest-Assist technology, quickly removing ice cubes from the evaporator surface. This decreases the time of the ice-making cycle, saving electricity. These efficiencies have helped the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HA cuber head earn an ENERGY STAR rating.
The Ice-O-Matic B55PS storage bin has a capacity of 510 pounds of ice. The bin is 30" wide and a total of 50" high, including the adjustable 6" legs. The B55PS has been constructed with a stainless steel exterior and a polyethylene bin liner, with a layer of foam insulation between them. The bin door flips up for easy front access to your ice supply. Note: A bin drain is located at the back of the B55PS so that any standing water can be regularly removed.
The Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HA-B55PS equipment combo is a durable, reliable, and smart choice. With the low profile ICE0500HA cuber head mounted on top of the B55PS storage bin, the height of the equipment combination is less than 6 feet at only 70 inches high. With these compact external dimensions, efficient ice production and storage capacity, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0500HA-B40PS cuber head and bin combo would work well for a business with a moderate daily ice requirement and limited space.
