Aquila Triventek RE80 and RE150 Recovery Unit

Normal dry-ice production uses liquid CO2 which when depressurised converts just over half the volume into snow but the rest escapes and is lost. The snow is then compressed into dry-ice pellets.

But, by using the revolutionary new RE80 Recovery Unit, all of the escaping gas is directed back, collected and reused to make more pellets. The unit converts liquid to solid in the ratio 1.12:1, compared to about 1.6:1 for old-fashioned ‘balloon’-type recovery technology.

The recycling becomes a continuous process and will reduce production costs by 50% and rapidly increase operating margins and profits. Payback periods under 12 months are easily achievable.

The RE80 Recovery Unit from Aquila Triventek collects all the escaping ‘revert’ gas from the dry ice production, which in smaller systems is normally wasted and simply vented to atmosphere. The unit chills and compresses the gas back into liquid CO2 which is then reused to produce more dry ice pellets in a continuous process.
