The P40 MC Pelletizer is designed in particular to produce small quantities of dry ice pellets with a High Density from the Liquid Carbon Dioxide at a very low temperature. In order to produce the snow and the gas you need a regular supply of Liquid CO2 from a storage tank which is fed at a very low pressure. The snow is then compressed through an extrusion plate from an interactive single horizontal piston. The return gas transferred from the pelletizer is released into the atmosphere or can be recovered.
The M.E.C. P40 MC is a unit which works without using any oil. It is made from a special light alloy lead driven by an electric engine. All parts are designed in particular to work on a laboratory table.
This mechanical system is suitable for use with interchangeable die–plates in order to produce different dry ice shapes.
In order to obtain efficient functioning, it is advisable to use the liquid CO2 without moisture. The Carbon Dioxide is non–toxic and easy to store in work areas. It is electrically non–conductive and non–flammable. The necessary equipment for this kind of plant is generally the following: a liquid CO2 refrigerated storage tank, a pelletizer and a liquid CO2 line for the connection.
