The carbon dioxide gas is pressurized and cooled to form liquid CO2. The liquid carbon dioxide is injected into either a block press or pelletizer. These dry ice production plants have chambers in which, once released to atmospheric pressure, the liquid carbon dioxide converts to dry ice snow and carbon dioxide gas.

Engineered design to minimize factory space used
How TGPL System Works
Dry Ice is produced by suddenly expanding pressurized liquid CO2 under atmospheric pressure. The general conversion ratio will be approx. 40 to 45% of dry ice. In simple words: out of 100kg liquid CO2 only 40-45kg will be dry ice and the rest is normally lost as CO2 gas to the atmosphere.
A TGPL CO2-Gas Recovery Plant will be directly connected to the CO2-Gas Exit of the dry ice machine. The CO2 gas will be fed into the balloon above the recovery plant which will act as a buffer for the CO2-Gas Compressor. This dry running compressor will compress the CO2-Gas up to 14-20 bars. At the next stage this compressed gas will be liquefied using a TGPL designed liquefaction module. Once the CO2-Gas has been liquefied, it will be fed automatically to the existing CO2-Storage Tank for reuse.
TGPL CO2-Gas Recovery Plants are designed for simple, automatic operation all controlled by using a central touch screen to monitor and control its operation.
Also small units are available
