Dry Ice pellets maker

Description:

This revolutionary Dry Ice pellets maker sets new standards for producing Dry Ice. It makes using Dry Ice easy. You can have high-quality Dry Ice when you want it, at the turn of a switch. This is Dry Ice on tap. It has always been difficult to precisely forecast how much Dry Ice you are going to need for chilling or cleaning operations. You tend to over-order from a centralized factory "just in case". If you under-order, you may run out and not be able to ship or process valuable temperature-sensitive goods on time; you may have to return to a cleaning job, at extra expense and inconvenience. All that over-ordered Dry Ice often just sublimes away, wasting time and money.

Dry Ice's main logistical problem is: you can't store it. But you can store liquid carbon dioxide (LCO2) in a suitable vessel. This gives you a "buffer" of potential Dry Ice ready to be produced when you need it. No more last-minute panic ordering of Dry Ice from an inflexible supply infrastructure.

There are pure economic benefits:

  • Delivering LCO2 infrequently is cheaper than delivering Dry Ice frequently.
  • Lower cost LCO2 can also mean useful savings on the unit cost of Dry Ice.
  • The Pelletizer takes LCO2 and brings it up to near atmospheric pressure and turns it into a mixture of gas and solid in the form of "snow". The solid is compressed in triple chambers and extruded to produce hard pellets or nuggets in any size from 1.7 mm to 16 mm diameter.
  • Site-produced Dry Ice will always be fresher, and so more effective, than Dry Ice produced at a centralized factory, sometimes days in advance, and then shipped to you.
  • Dry Ice nuggets can be bagged to mimic the handling characteristic of a slice, with the advantage of better packing around the product, at a surprisingly small sublimation cost.

PE80 Pelletizer can be integrated to feed directly into packing lines or into Dry Ice blast cleaning stations for automated operations. Movements of Dry Ice through the site are thus eliminated. The PE80 can be upgraded by the addition of the patented RE80 Recovery Unit, which captures and recycles revert gas to practically halve the cost of Dry Ice.

With its ground-breaking low capital cost, the PE80 makes the use of Dry Ice easy and affordable for even the lower volume user.
