RE80 Recovery Unit

Dry Ice is normally produced by bringing liquid CO2 up to atmospheric pressure. When this happens approximately half of the liquid CO2 turns into solid ‘snow’, which is typically compressed to ice, and the other half (called ‘revert’ gas) is simply vented to the atmosphere. But, by using revolutionary Aquila Triventek Recovery Units, all of the revert gas is collected, chilled and compressed to liquid CO2 and sent back to the Pelletizer.

With the addition of this unit, revert gas can be captured and recycled, practically halving the cost of the Dry Ice pellets.
