If ambient air is 70 degrees Fahrenheit and incoming water is 50 degrees Fahrenheit, then the Kold-Draft GB564LHK GB Series ice machine head can make 598 pounds of ice with a water-cooled condenser. Unlike air-cooled units, this type of condenser avoids heating and loudly whirring, while water flows over the evaporator grid and freezes to create half-size cubes. With the purchase of an ice bin, cubes can be collected and saved until needed. Half-size cubes have a variety of uses, such as for drinks, bags, or displays, and the Kold-Draft GB564LHK ice machine head has a front-access system that simplifies maintenance. The unit's stainless steel exterior is 300 series to provide excellent rust protection.
