This Follett 50CI400W-LI Symphony countertop water cooled ice maker and dispenser produces up to 400 lbs. of ice per day! Perfect for use in healthcare applications like hospitals and retirement communities, this unit produces \"Chewblet\" compressed nugget ice, which is softer and more chewable than standard cubes. A filter is essential to prevent the build-up of mineral deposits and sediments within the ice machine. We highly recommend that our 10\" filter kit be used with this ice machine.
