The Ice-O-Matic GEM0956A ice machine head produces Pearl Ice, the company's nugget-style ice that is soft, chewable, and a popular choice for beverage service. In a span of 24 hours, this ice maker can produce a maximum of 1,053 pounds of ice, a production estimate that assumes an ambient air temperature of 70 degrees Fahrenheit and a water temperature of 50 degrees F. Your per-day yield might be lowered when used with warmer temperatures. This ice maker can be paired with an ice storage bin for behind-the-counter service or with a dispenser to fit into self-serve setups.
As an Ice-O-Matic ice maker, the GEM0956A comes standard with many of the company's performance-enhancing features. This air-cooled unit takes advantage of front and rear air exchanges, which eliminates the need for side clearance to facilitate side-by-side installation with other equipment. To prevent damage, water sensors eliminate low- or no-water failures and the workload on the gearbox is monitored by the SystemSafe feature. Heavy-duty construction also lends itself to a long service life, with a stainless steel evaporator and auger and heavy-duty roller bearings.
