Carbon dioxide (CO2) solution provider, ASCO Carbon Dioxide Ltd, has launched an optimised, upgraded version of its previous Dry Ice Pelletizer A240P model, combining the Swiss corporation’s technical know-how in the field of dry ice.
The advanced ASCO Dry Ice Pelletizer P28 has a production capacity of up to 280kg an hour, converting liquid CO2 economically and autonomously into dry ice pellets in 3mm, 10mm and 16mm sizes.

The new compact machine features a seven-inch multi-touch screen, an aluminium press chamber and an optional rotatable discharge unit. According to the company, these upgrades result in higher user-friendliness, lower service needs and more efficient production processes.
Managing Director Marco Pellegrino commented, “The new ASCO Dry Ice Pelletizer P28 is yet another reliable and productive option in choosing the right machine for each requirement. For decades, ASCO has been the right address when it comes to building up or extending in-house dry ice production.”
As a standard feature across its pelletizer range, all ASCO’s machines now commence production automatically and stop once the desired amount of dry ice is reached.
ASCO CARBON DIOXIDE LTD’s Managing Director Marco Pellegrino revealed earlier this year that the Switzerland-based corporation was “targeting big opportunities in the US,” which has been brought to fruition with the establishment of its new US-based subsidiary.
Dry ice blasting technology from ASCO Carbon Dioxide Ltd has been used for efficient, cost-effective and gentle cleaning of different surfaces in numerous industries for years, and this range of applications now extends to high-quality vehicles.
M&A activity has been rife in the lifetime of ASCO, culminating in the Switzerland-based business itself being acquired by German giant the Messer Group, in 2007. Here, Managing Director Marco Pellegrino talks exclusively to gasworld about how he has channelled the growth of the company in recent years.
