The P100E pelletizer produces dry ice pellets of high quality. The production of dry ice pellets occurs during transformation of 'liquid carbon dioxide’ to solid. A regular supply of liquid CO2 from a storage tank is fed at low pressure to produce dry ice and gas. The snow is then compressed through an extruder die by a single horizontal piston mechanically driven.
This fully automated system is ideal for producing large quantities of dry ice pellets of ±100 kg / h. The return gas transferred from the pelletizer is released into the atmosphere or can be recovered.
The MEC P100E pelletizer operates completely dry (i.e. no oil needed). The mechanical system can easily be adapted to produce dry ice of different diameters by using interchangeable dies.
To obtain optimal performance it is strongly recommended that the ‘liquid CO2 must be completely dry, i.e. without moisture’.
Carbon dioxide is a non-toxic liquefied gas that is kept in suitable storage tanks or cylinders, which must be kept at a suitably low operating temperature. Larger tanks are provided and installed by the gas company supplying the CO2. It will require a suitable electrical connection and CO2 piping to the pelletizer.
