R 1500 Reformer

R1500 Reformer

Dry Ice Pellet to Slice System

The Process

Reforming pellets into slices reduces dry ice consumable cost and is safer for the operator compared to traditional block cutting processes. The pellet-to-slice reforming process eliminates hazards from cutting blocks and reduces CO2 sublimation loss by approximately 80% - producing less CO2 "smoke.
