The Royal Ice and Water vending machine operates by taking water from a standard municipal water supply trough a five stage filtration process, removing all organic, in-organic chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, dissolved solids and contaminants, including a variety of bacteria and nucleoids. This process provides your customers with clean, pristine water and ice.
Our machines are the ideal choice for supermarkets, convenience stores, mini markets, RV parks, marinas, large apartment complexes, and so much more!
Commisions are based on the sales volume of the machine.
|Average Gallons per Day||Commision Percentage|
|0 - 50.00||30|
|50.01 - 100.00||35|
|100.01 - 150.00||40||150.01 - 200.00||45|
|200.01 - more||50|
A good location / placement in a high traffic area with good visibility and easy
access usually determine the sales volume of the machine.
A local opinion of the communities drinking water quality plays an important factor.
The amount of the bottle water on local grocery shelves is also a good indicator of potential success.
With all components opening. Our vending machines draw less than 15 Amps.
15 Amps x 115 Volts = 1725 Watts or 1.7 KW
With a cost of $0.085 per Kilowatt/hour, an hour of continuous operation would be $0.145. A 4” x 21” membrane (operating at 175 psi) produces approximately 800 gallons per day, or 33.3 gallons per hour $0.145 divided by 33.3 =$0.0044 per gallon (approx. one half cent).
To produce Ice we use 2kw icemaker in our machines. This Icemaker
produces 700lb of ice in 24 hours or 29lb per hour.$0.17 divided by 29=
$0.005 per pound of ice.
Using a minimal recovery rate of only 33% (three gallon of feed water to produce
one gallon on RO water) and a cost of $2.50 per 1000 gallons of city water, the
water cost would be:
3 gallons x $0.0025 per gallon = $ 0.0075 for 1 gallon pure water (3/4 of a cent).
To produce 1 pound of ice need to take ¼ of gallon of water or $0,0018
Electrical and Water for drinking water: $0.0044 + $ 0.0075 = $0.0119
Electrical and Water for Ice production: $0.005 + $0,0018= $0.0068
Note: : this amount will vary slightly with different utility rates.
Installation Requirements: All our Ice/water vending machines require is a water
line in, a drain line out and a 110/220V power source. That is all! Easy, right?
