The Ice-O-Matic ICE0806HA-B55PS is a 30" wide ice machine cuber head with a production rate of up to 897 pounds of full cube ice in a 24-hour period combined with an ice storage bin (just over 37 pounds of ice produced each hour). This equipment combo requires the ICE0806FA cuber head to be mounted on the B55PS storage bin.
The ICE0806HA cuber head cabinet is 26" tall and 30" wide. Note that since the Ice-O-Matic ICE0806FA is an air-cooled model, it requires a minimum of 6" of air vent clearance on the right side and the back for proper functioning. The Half Cube produced by the Ice-O-Matic ICE0806HA measures 3/8" x 7/8" x 7/8". These Half Cubes are ideal for using in ice dispensers, since they are less likely to jam the machine. They are also popular for use in retail beverages, since more of the small cubes can fit in a glass meaning higher liquid displacement per serving.
Installation requirements for the Ice-O-Matic ICE0806HA are a 208-230 volt electrical connection, and one potable incoming water line. The ICE0806HA cuber head also requires an external drain for purged water. Ice-O-Matic has included their Harvest-Assist technology in the ICE0806HA to more quickly remove ice from the evaporator plate. This Harvest-Assist shortens the ice-making cycle and saves both time and electricity.
The Ice-O-Matic B55PS storage bin is 30" wide and a total of 50" high, with the 6" legs attached. The B55PS can hold 510 pounds of ice at one time. The bin cabinet exterior is stainless steel and the interior bin liner is polyethylene. Foam insulation has been injected between the walls to preserve your ice. Ice can be easily accessed through the front flip up door. The Ice-O-Matic B55PS bin will also require a drain to remove any water formed by melted ice (both the cuber head and bin can use the same external drain).
The Ice-O-Matic ICE0806HA-B55PS equipment combo measures 76" high when the cuber and head are installed together. If your location has limits on the space where you can install your ice machine, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0806FA-B55PS cuber head and bin combo will work for you, as long as you have a 36" wide opening.
