Ice-O-Matic GEM1306A Details
Choose this Ice-O-Matic GEM1306A ice machine for dependable ice production and a host of smart design features that will help your business run at maximum efficiency! This ice machine is capable of producing up to 1350 lb. of Pearl-style ice per day. These soft, chewable ice crystals are a customer favorite for fountain drinks because they dispense well, cool beverages faster, and last longer when compared to standard cube ice, and they also blend well in smoothies and mixed drinks too. This type of ice machine also uses less power and water than most comparable cube ice makers, which makes it a great upgrade for restaurants, convenience stores, and healthcare facilities that primarily use their ice in beverages.
The ice-making mechanism for this unit is engineered to address many common ice machine problems and provide long-lasting performance. The stainless steel 1-piece auger, industrial-grade roller bearings, and heavy-duty gearbox give the power to shape the ice, and the durability to provide years of reliable ice making. An in-line direct drive train also improves efficiency and lets this unit run cooler. A copper coil provides efficient heat transfer and a balanced load, and the evaporator is made from rugged heavy-duty stainless steel to provide a longer life. Finally, the top bearing is also located outside of the ice-making zone, which prevents corrosion from damaging the unit or affecting ice quality.
In addition to its rugged construction, this ice machine boasts smart electronics to help minimize service calls. The SystemSafe load monitoring system constantly checks the stress on the gearbox, and will shut the machine down before it can cause damage and necessitate costly repairs. An innovative water sensor also eliminates low and no water failures and is designed so that adverse water conditions cannot affect its reliability. Additionally, key components are made with Agion antimicrobial materials to inhibit the growth of harmful pathogens and reduce the risk of foodborne illness. It uses R404A refrigerant and requires a 208-230V electrical connection.
