Ice-O-Matic Undercounter Cubers and Flakers
Cubers are popular in the foodservice industry because it's a versatile ice cube that works well for many applications. Great for cocktails, beverages like iced tea and more, long-lasting cubed ice keeps drinks cool and preserves flavor longer. Ice-O-Matic cubers featured a durable stainless steel top panels that are rust-resistant. These ice makers also come equipped with Pure ICE®, a built-in antimicrobial protection that prevents bacteria growth, keeping your ice tasting and smelling good. And with the included harvest assist by Ice-O-Matic, you'll always have new ice in the bin without having to wait for gravity to overpower the scale.
If you're looking for ice smaller than a cube, look to Ice-O-Matic's Pearl® ice. Similar to nugget ice or “chewable” ice, Pearl® ice is often used in soft drinks because it can easily be chewed by customers.
The Difference Between Air-Cooled and Water-Cooled Compressors?
The main purpose of your ice machine's compressor is to draw heat away from the refrigeration lines. Water-cooled compressors require an additional water line that runs alongside the condenser. While they tend to be quiet and operate efficiently in hot environments (because they aren't heating an already hot kitchen) many local conservation codes prohibit the use of water-cooled compressors.
Conversely, air-cooled compressors circulate air over the condenser and many are ENERGY STAR® compliance. That said, air-cooled compressors are costly to operate and tend to be noisier than their water-cooled counterparts. You'll also need to be aware of minimum clearance requirements around air intake and discharge areas to keep your machine operating smoothly.
