Consistent Quality When and Where it’s Needed
This revolutionary equipment sets new standards for producing dry ice. With the PE80, dry ice can be manufactured where and when it’s needed—quickly, efficiently, and cheaply.
It’s always difficult to calculate the precise amount of dry ice required for any particular operation. Either too little or too much – it’s unavoidable. Consequently, there is non-productive working time, costly return visits, or surplus material that deteriorates rapidly – all of which has a negative effect on margins and profits.
However, with the PE80 Pelletizer, high density dry ice pellets can be produced in any size from 1.7mm to 16mm, i.e. micropellets, cleaning pellets, and cooling nuggets can be manufactured locally at the point of usage. It is small, easy to locate, and requires only a source of liquid CO2 and three-phase power. The PE80 is transported on a frame which can also be used as a stand-alone framework. Alternatively, it can be wall-mounted.
The pelletizer can be integrated into a chilling process line for the food, pharmaceutical, and other temperature-sensitive industries, and with the addition of a dry ice blaster machine, can be used for automated cleaning operations. It is recommended that a RE80 Recovery Unit is also used to maximize efficiency and productivity. The recycling becomes a continuous process and will reduce production costs by 50%, rapidly increasing operating margins and profits. Payback periods under 12 months are easily achievable.
The low-capital investment means that even low volume dry ice users can get cost and convenience advantages through making their own dry ice as needed.
