To produce dry ice, we will need a high quality dry ice production system or dry ice making machines that can operate 24/7. So how does the dry ice production machine work and how many types of this machine are on the market today?

What is Dry Ice Making Machine ?

Dry ice making machine is specialized industrial equipment used to produce dry ice in bulk. Depending on the production needs of the user, they can customize the parameters of the production level as well as the amount of CO2 dry ice produced.

Dry ice production is a must process to create material for dry ice blaster to clean the surface or mold of a machine

On the market today, Cold Jet’s dry ice making machines, exclusively distributed by Specco2 in Vietnam, is the world’s best quality dry ice machine. The quality of the dry ice produced is very high without any impurities, enough to satisfy even the most demanding customers.

How Dry Ice Making Machine work ?

Essentially, dry ice making machine work on the same basic principle of creating a phase change of CO2 by converting the gas to a liquid form and passing it through an expansion valve that allows the CO2 gas to expand. Under atmospheric pressure, gas forms and produces dry ice (frozen CO2). The heat of vaporization from the phase change for the next dry ice production (in larger, more sophisticated production equipment) or is released to the atmosphere (in smaller units with simpler designs and lower production output).

These dry ice production machines are available in different sizes based on capacity as well as quantity of dry ice produced, usually measured in units of kg/hr or lbs/hr.

In addition, to produce dry ice of exceptional quality we need to know specification for the CO2 inlet pressure in pressure units such as bar or psi. The more liquid Co2 consumed in the production of dry ice, the higher the density of the dry ice will be, so that the ice will be less volatile and the cleaning quality with dry ice will be more effective.

Selecting the model to use is fundamentally dependent on the production capacity and desired style of the dry ice, which depends on the manufacturer’s application.

Many dry ice machines are designed to operate using liquid carbon dioxide stored in tanks and transported in pressurized tanks by trucks or railroad cars.

In other cases, at dry ice facilities located near oil or ammonia refineries, where carbon dioxide gas is produced as a byproduct of ethanol or ammonia production. This proximity minimizes the cost and distance from which CO2 supplies can be easily obtained. In those cases, a pipeline can be run directly from the refinery to the dry ice production facility.

Some models of dry ice machines are designed with parallel redundancy, allowing operations to continue on one side of the machine while the other side is being serviced.

Dry Ice Making Machine that Specco2 offer

In Vietnam, Specco2 provides a number of genuine dry ice making machines of the famous American brand Cold Jet. In general, the dry ice machine is divided into 2 types, which are normal dry ice machines and bulk dry ice machines with a continuous capacity of 24/24.

With proven quality coupled with state-of-the-art logistics, the dry ice production machine supplied by Specco2 can produce large quantities of dry ice with extremely high quality.

Some of the products that Specco2 offer are:
