Dry ice block machine

With the fast development of science and technology, dry ice has been the new clean resources applied to many aspects of our life and production. Dry ice now can be processed with different shapes and sizes by a series of dry ice processing machines or the dry ice production line. As for the dry ice block, it can be made with different thickness by the dry ice block machine, and its thickness is adjustable. Besides, the dry ice block machine’s production capacity varies with its different models.

The dry ice block machine has high working efficiency in making dry ice blocks. It can be many types and models. In general, the larger the output of the dry ice block machine, the larger its size will be. Its output ranges from 120kg/h to 1000kg/h, and the size and shape of dry ice block can be adjusted according to the type of machine. Usually, the thicker the dry ice produced, the greater the yield of the machine.

Main applications of the dry ice block

The dry ice block can be widely used in many fields, especially for use in the food and drug refrigeration and transportation, aviation catering, cold chain transportation, cold storage refrigeration and so on. When the dry ice blocks are made, we can use the dry ice heat preservation box to keep them in low temperature.

  1. Simple structure, easy to install and operate, easy to maintain. The machine running smooth, safe in operation.
  2. Small area occupation, space saving, high production efficiency, high density of finished dry ice blocks, which is easy to preserve and transport.
  3. The final dry ice products have good appearance and can use widely used in daily life so that the user can do commercial dry ice blocks production.

Dry ice block machine SL-100-1

This SL-100-1 model of dry ice block machine has a reasonable structure. It has a single outlet for discharging the dry ice blocks. It is composed of the pressure indicator, control button group, inlet and outlet, motor(7.5kw) and the hydraulic cylinder. And the dry ice size of this model ranges from 125×105×20mm to 125×105×60mm, and the thickness of the dry ice blocks is adjustable. Its production capacity is between120kg/h and 185kg/h, besides, the greater the thickness of dry ice blocks, the greater the yield of them.

Dry ice block machine SL-100-2

This SL-100-2 model of dry ice block machine is a bigger type, which has two outlets for discharging dry ice blocks. Its structure is just the same as the model SL-100-2, but it has two motors(7.5kw×2)and accordingly two hydraulic cylinders for larger output. The size of dry ice blocks produced by this model ranges from 125×105×20mm to 125×105×60mm, and the dry ice blocks’ thickness is also adjustable. The yield of this model is twice that of the model SL-100-1, which can reach 240kg/h to 370kg/h.

Dry ice block machine SL-500-1  

This dry ice block machine is mainly to make large blocks of dry ice, which can make the dry ice block with the sizes between 250×140×50mm and 250×140×210mm. Compared to the above two models, this one is equipped with a larger motor(13.5kw) and a higher yield which ranges from 300kg/h to 500kg/h, besides, the greater the thickness of dry ice block, the greater the yield of the machine. Because of the different working capacity, its liquid CO2 inlet diameter and exhaust pipe diameter are also different.

Since it has a big working capacity, it has two discharging inlets and two hydraulic cylinders. When it works, we can monitor the hydraulic pressure through the pressure indicator and can regulate the press speed.   

Dry ice block machine SL-500-1L

SL-500-1L model of dry ice block machine’s shape and structure are different from previous models. We can see that its hydraulic cylinder is set vertically which is different from the former models with the horizontal hydraulic cylinder. It is composed of the electronic cabinet controller, motor, hydraulic cylinder, frame, mold, and the operating shelf. The operating shelf is setting closely to discharging outlet for easy collecting the dry ice blocks. The mold can be changed and even be customized for different requirements of the dry ice blocks sizes.

Dry ice block machine SL-650-1L

SL-650-1L model of dry ice block machine’s structure is similar to the SL-500-1L model, but it has a larger output than the former model. Its yield ranges from 400kg/h to 650kg/h. Because the size of the dry ice blocks produced by this model is larger, its working efficiency is very high. This model of dry ice machine is very suitable for commercial production of dry ice products. And the final dry ice blocks are mainly used for preservation and refrigeration industry.
