ASCO DRY ICE MACHINE BP425i
ASCO DRY ICE MACHINE BP425i
ASCO’s automatic Dry Ice Machine BP425i produces slices in ten different thicknesses and two different types of pellets with a diameter of 3, 6, 10 or 16 mm (1/8, 1/4, 3/8 or 5/8 in) at the push of a button. Standard slice dimensions are 210 x 125 x 20 - 125 mm (8.3 x 4.9 x 0.8 - 4.9 in). Other slice/pellet dimensions are available on request. Depending on the setting, the production capacity ranges from 190 to 400 kg/h (418 to 882 lb/h).
The dies for the production of different sizes do not have to be changed manually as they are already built-in and can be controlled at the touch screen panel.
The automatic dry ice block, slice and pellet machine ASCO BP425i belongs to the ASCO i-Series line. It's equipped with state-of-the-art remote control devices and thus is ready for a wide range of services in the areas of Remote Access, Remote Data, Remote Management. Be it for fast and efficient trouble shooting and maintenance or for gathering production and performance data - the ASCO i-Series offers a wide range of possibilities to link Industry 4.0 with dry ice production.
Advantages of an ASCO In-house Dry Ice Production
Dry ice is made from recycled CO2 and does not consume valuable water
No ordering-, rental- and transportation-costs for dry ice and equipment
Consistently high quality of dry ice
No dependency on suppliers
Dry ice has 3 times the cooling capacity of conventional water ice (approx. 640 kJ/kg)
Dry ice is not a hazardous material. It is a food grade material and approved by the EPA, FDA and USDA

Reduced dry ice production costs. Thanks to CO2-Recovery.
When dry ice is produced the conversion rate from liquid CO2 to dry ice is approx. 40 - 45 %. This means 55 - 60 % is lost to the atmosphere. This conversation rate is a physical fact and therefore, unfortunately, not to change. With an ASCO CO2 Revert Recovery System, however, most of the CO2 can be recovered which leads to a final conversion rate up to 95 %. This way, the dry ice production costs are reduced up to 50 %.
ASCO CO2 Revert Recovery System
Ice Loader for dry ice blocks/ -discs
For reasons of weight and occupational health and safety, we recommend using the Ice Loader instead of the standard block brake for a controlled and timed handover of blocks / slices from 1.2kg (2.7lb) or 30mm (1.2in) thickness. The Ice Loader is tailored to the production capacities of the dry ice machine and designed for the standard block / slice sizes of 210×125mm.
