There appears to be growing demand for dry ice pellets across different applications, if the latest product release of CO2 specialist ASCO is anything to go by.

ASCO has launched its new Dry Ice Pelletizers recently, with production capacities of 700 kg per hour and 450 kg per hour, respectively.

The P700 Automatic Dry Ice Pelletizer is determined for the production of big quantities of densely compressed dry ice pellets. The P700 has a production capacity of 700 kg per hour and produces dry ice pellets in five different sizes for potential use in a multiple of applications to include that of dry ice blasting and cooling.

For medium-sized quantities of dry ice pellets, ASCO developed the Automatic Dry Ice Pelletizer P450. The P450 has a production capacity of 450 kg per hour and also produces dry ice pellets in five different sizes for blasting and cooling purposes.

Both dry ice pelletizers incorporate a heavy-duty type hydraulic system controlled by an integrated PLC. Fully automatic control of oil temperature and dry ice snowing process warrants continuous dry ice production, without supervision right from the start all at the press of a button.

A touch screen panel provides easy overview and operation. The available extruder plates can be quickly exchanged manually.
