Dry Ice is normally produced by bringing liquid CO2 up to atmospheric pressure. When this happens approximately half of the liquid CO2 turns into solid 'snow', which is typically compressed to ice, and the other half (called 'revert' gas) is simply vented to the atmosphere. But, by using our Recovery Units, all of the revert gas is collected, chilled and compressed to liquid CO2 and sent back to the Pelletizer.
This, low capital cost, patented development greatly exceeds the efficiency of even the very largest, big capital, recovery plants that utilise old technology.
Furthermore, the energy cost is halved in comparison to traditional methods. The liquid CO2 storage vessel can be smaller, or deliveries can be made even less frequently, since a system with recovery will use approximately half the quantity of liquid CO2 than a non-recovery unit assisted Pelletizer would.
Using our Recovery Units will reduce production costs by approximately 50% and rapidly increase operating margins and profits. In this way it makes 'dry ice on tap' affordable for even the more modest volume user.
