Reduce your dry ice production costs by up to 40% by recycling revert CO2 back into your dry ice pelletizer to produce dry ice!
Dry ice production uses liquid CO2 (LCO2), which when brought to normal atmospheric pressure in a pelletizer chamber, half of this liquid is converted to CO2 snow, and the other half is converted to gas, called revert gas. The CO2 snow is then compressed into dry ice pellets while the revert gas is typically vented into the atmosphere.
By using our RE-CO2 Recovery Systems, the revert gas is collected and recycled to make more dry ice pellets. With a modular design and multiple liquefaction capacities, we ensure that you will drastically improve the conversion rate of LCO2-to-dry ice.
Our RE-CO2 Recovery Systems integrate easily with all Cold Jet (and many competitor) dry ice production systems, including our Integrated Blasting Systems!
The CO2 Recovery Systems capture revert CO2 from the vent of a dry ice pelletizer and circulates it back into themselves. Within the recovery unit, the gaseous CO2 is cooled and compressed to create liquid CO2 that is then piped right back to the dry ice pelletizer.
This process reduces LCO2 consumption by almost half in most installations!
We saw an immediate effect on our CO2 ratio from 2.4:1 now to 1.35:1. Profit, production capability, and overall company performance is greatly improved.

Recover CO2 from nearly any dry ice pelletizer brand.
Our RE-CO2 Recovery Systems can be easily integrated into your current dry ice production process and are compatible with almost every pelletizer brand on the market. If floor space is limited, they can be installed outside near a bulk LCO2 tank. We will help you with the electrical needs.
The CO2 recovery system is an add-on to your existing dry ice production operation. It captures and recovers vented CO2 gas that is unused during the regular manufacturing process, ensuring it can be utilized to make more dry ice.
The CO2 recovery system can reduce the conversion ratio from 2.2 lbs of liquid CO2 to 1 lb of dry ice to an improved ratio of 1.3 lbs of liquid CO2 to 1 lb of dry ice. This results in significant savings in CO2 usage or increased dry ice production with the same amount of liquid CO2.
Yes, the CO2 recovery system is designed to seamlessly integrate with your current dry ice production equipment. It can be easily added to enhance the efficiency of your operations.
No, the recovered and reliquefied CO2 from the CO2 recovery system does not go back into the bulk CO2 tank. Instead, the new liquid CO2 is directed through a valve into the piping that feeds liquid to the pelletizer. It is important to note that gas companies have strict regulations prohibiting the introduction of external substances or recovered CO2 back into the bulk CO2 tank. Our CO2 recovery system ensures compliance with these regulations while maximizing production output and minimizing waste by delivering a continuous flow of high-quality liquid CO2 to the pelletizer.
By incorporating the CO2 recovery system, you can save up to 40% of liquid CO2 that would otherwise be exhausted during the dry ice manufacturing process.
The CO2 recovery system is designed to be easily installed alongside your current dry ice production equipment, requiring minimal additional equipment or modifications.
The CO2 recovery system offers two primary benefits: significant cost savings in CO2 procurement by reducing waste and increased dry ice production capacity with the same amount of liquid CO2.
No, the CO2 recovery system has no impact on the quality of the dry ice. It ensures that the recovered CO2 gas is of the same high quality as the liquid CO2 used in the production process. The process is a closed-loop system, which eliminates the chance of any contamination.
The CO2 recovery system is designed for easy operation and requires minimal maintenance. Regular checks and maintenance of the system are recommended to ensure optimal performance.
Implementing the CO2 recovery system can result in significant cost savings on CO2 procurement and increased production capacity. The return on investment will depend on your specific production volume and CO2 usage, but in many cases the ROI period can be 12 months or less.
