The R1000H pellet-to-slice reformer is an ideal solution for dry ice pellet businesses that want to diversify dry ice production capabilities by adding slice and mini-block dry ice to their product range. The R1000H has the flexibility to reform dry ice pellets from 3 mm to 16 mm (1/8” – 5/8”) into high quality dry ice slices/mini blocks – ranging from 0.25 kg (0.55 lbs) up to 3.3 kg (7.28 lbs). The system can run up to 1,000 press cycles per hour and can reform up to 1,000 kg (2,204 lbs) of dry ice per hour, depending on slice format and the pellet volume supply.
The R1000H uses the Beckhoff Industrial PC, which includes a 15” color touch panel that provides intelligent control and easy operation. The stainless steel machine has special features, such as an enclosed cabinet and insulated hopper, ensuring dry ice density is high and sublimation loss is low. With an exit slice conveyor, the R1000H can easily be integrated into current production environments.
Reforming pellets into slices reduces dry ice consumable cost and is a simplified and safer process when compared with traditional block cutting which, in many regions, is a manual operator process. The pellet-to-slice reforming process eliminates the hazards of cutting blocks and reduces CO2 waste significantly.
