COLD JET, a developer of dry-ice pelletizing process technologies and equipment, launched a new delivery system for industrial use. The E160 Pelletizer is an efficient dry ice extruder that has minimal space requirements and is designed to manufacture 3- to 16-mm dry ice pellets and nuggets on demand. According to the developer, it provides the highest output to footprint ratio in dry ice production and has the lowest maintenance cost and lowest energy consumption available.
Dry ice cleaning is an environmentally sound and effective alternative to blast cleaning, notaby for surface critical materials and products.
“The E160 Pelletizer is easy to operate, can go to full production in less than three minutes and requires only half of the normal space needed by similar dry ice production equipment on the market today,” stated Wim Eeckelaers, senior vice president, Global Dry Ice Manufacturing, Cold Jet.
In addition to its compact footprint, the fully automatic E160 Pelletizer produces up to 160 kg (352 lb.) per hour of consistent, high-density dry ice pellets or nuggets on demand. Also, it has the highest liquid-to-solid conversion rate; is simple to operate ‐ either as a standalone machine or integrated with an automated dry ice cleaning or surface preparation system; has a closed, stainless steel frame; can be operated from cylinders, dewars or storage tanks of liquid CO2; and has multiple industrial voltage ports, so it can be used effectively at plants worldwide.
Cold Jet’s dry ice production equipment produces consistent, high-density dry ice for transportation and blasting and has been engineered to extrude the highest density dry ice available. Due to proprietary knowledge of dry ice, Cold Jet’s process creates a longer shelf life, transports better, and achieves superior blasting performance.
Cold Jet pelletizers are also fully automated with one‐button operation and are made to UL, USDA, FDA and CE standards.
