The Ice-O-Matic ICE0520HW is a water-cooled Modular style ice machine that produces up to 527 pounds of Half-sized Cube ice every 24 hours. The Ice-O-Matic ICE0520HW produces a half cube ice that measures 7/8 inches by 7/8 inches by 3/8 inches. Half Cube ice works well with dispenser applications since the smaller cube is less likely to jam the dispenser mechanism. Half cube ice is often popular with beverage retailers, since more half cubes can fit in each glass and there is less liquid per serving. In order to install the Ice-O-Matic ICE0520HW, the location requires a 115 volt, 60 Hz, 1-Phase power supply. Since the water-cooled condenser does not require air circulation, the cuber head cabinet does not require side clearance, so you can fit the ICE0520HW in locations with limited wall space (minimum of 22 inches left to right). Note that this water-cooled model does require an external drain for the 128 gallons of waste water that used to cool the condenser for every 100 pounds of ice produced (up to 670 gallons of waste water per day if the ice machine produces to full capacity). However, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0520FW does have Ice-O-Matic's Harvest Assist technology, which dislodges ice from the evaporator more quickly, shortening the ice-making cycle and reducing your overall electricity consumption.
The Ice-O-Matic B42PS storage bin is 22 inches wide, with a 351 LB storage capacity. The B42PS storage bin by itself measures 50" high with its 6" adjustable legs. The Ice-O-Matic B42PS bin is constructed with a stainless steel exterior and an inner polyethylene bin liner. Foam insulation has been inserted between the layers to preserve your ice. The plastic bin door flips up for scooping ice. Ice-O-Matic has included a built-in ice scoop holder on the inner wall of the bin (ice scoop not included). Some kind of external drain is required (either a floor drain or a drain pump) for the B42PS. A bin drain allows any standing water to drain out, preventing growth of organisms. Note that you can use the same drain for both the storage bin and the water-cooled cuber head.
The Ice-O-Matic ICE0520HW cuber head mounted on the B42PS storage bin measure just over 73" tall. Both units are 22" wide, so this ice machine and storage bin combo works well where you have limited space. Ice-O-Matic has also incorporated AgIon antimicrobial compound in all ice maker surfaces that come into contact with water or ice. The ICE0520FW-B42PS ice machine and storage bin combo overall have a production rate of 527 LB per day and a bin storage capacity of 351 LB, and would work well in an establishment with moderate ice requirements and limited space for installation.
