The Swiss Asco Carbon Dioxide Ltd. now simplifies the fast and precisely dosed filling of dry ice pellets into containers and shipping boxes. Companies that rely on the Asco Filling System for Dry Ice Pellets are mainly from the pharmaceutical, food and logistics industries. Thanks to the Asco Filling System for Dry Ice Pellets, from now on freshly produced dry ice pellets can be filled directly into containers or boxes and dosed by weight. This is particularly helpful when cool chains must not be interrupted and goods are to be shipped under cryogenic conditions. Individually storable pre-settings are available for the filling of dry ice pellets, which define the quantity of the pre- and main filling. Like this, goods can be covered all around with the cooling medium.
The dry ice specialist Asco offers absolute system reliability since the dry ice pelletizer and the filling system communicate with each other. The automatic container filling system for dry ice pellets can be operated in combination with the Asco P15(i) P28i and P55i pelletizers. Depending on the pelletizer output, the total filling capacity reaches up to 10 kilograms (22 lb) per minute. The integration of the filling system into a fully automatic dry ice production with conveyor belts is possible on request (supply and removal of the containers including filling). Marco Pellegrino, Managing Director of Asco Carbon Dioxide Ltd., on the new addition to the dry ice production portfolio: "In the course of the increasing demand for packaging and filling solutions in dry ice production, it was our clear goal to be the first manufacturer of dry ice technology to offer such a filling system this year. We are proud to have already helped customers in pharmaceutical logistics with this solution and look forward to new exciting projects."
