Each day, the Kold-Draft GB561AHK ice machine head can produce 502 pounds of ice if incoming water is 50 degrees Fahrenheit and ambient air is 70 degrees Fahrenheit. The condenser is cooled with air that is moved over the coils by a fan. This design cools the refrigerant in the coils, so it can remove heat from the evaporator plate as water flows over it, freezing water to create ice cubes.
Half-cube ice forms in the Kold-Draft GB561AHK ice machine head; these cubes measure 0.625 inch by 1.25 inches by 1.25 inches and are perfect for drinks. The unit has a stainless steel frame and evaporator that resist rusting, denting, and bending. To increase ice production in the same footprint, the ice maker can be stacked with other units in the same series.
