The Kold-Draft GB561AC ice machine head can produce 490 pounds of full-cube ice in 24 hours if the ambient air is 70 degrees Fahrenheit and incoming water is 50 degrees Fahrenheit. These cubes measure 1.25 inches by 1.25 inches by 1.25 inches. While these cubes are large and slow melting, they cool drinks slower than half-cube ice.
Ice forms when R404A refrigerant removes heat from the evaporator plate so water can freeze. Refrigerant is cooled by flowing water over the condenser coils; this type of unit is more difficult to install than air-cooled units, but it handles fluctuations in temperature better. This Kold-Draft GB561AC ice maker can be stacked with other GB units for high-volume ice production in a small footprint.
