ASCO DRY ICE PELLETIZER P55i
ASCO DRY ICE PELLETIZER P55i
The ASCO Dry Ice Pelletizer P55i is one of the most powerful dry ice machines from ASCO's i-Series line. Having a production capacity of 550 kg/h (1'212 lb/h) it meets the demands for high dry ice quantities plus quality and flexibility in the daily working process.
As a model of ASCO's i-Series, it is 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.
The ASCO Dry Ice Pelletizer P55i is driven by two powerful hydraulic units, which are running independently by the push of a button. This allows the production of identical or different pellet sizes in combination with the offered extruder plates at the same time. All functions are controlled by a Siemens PLC with a 12" touch screen.
A fully automatic control of oil temperature and dry ice snowing process guarantees continuous dry ice production without any supervision right from pushing the start button.
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

Automated Pellets' Bagging
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 %.
