To dose dry ice pellets
directly into the feeding zone of the extruder, a modified volumetric screw feeder and tumbler mixer were developed (Fig.
Recent findings on ice pellets
characteristics lead to the need for clarification of their definition.
It takes approximately 20 min to go through 30 lb of ice pellets
, which is about how long it takes to clean both halves of a mold measuring 2 x 3 ft.
It is a mechanical effect caused by the impact of the dry ice pellets
and an expansion due to the partial sublimation of the pellet (Uhlmann et al.
With a production capacity of 90 kg/hr of 3 mm diameter dry ice pellets

Xerox employees found they could clean returned Xerox equipment with dry ice pellets
instead of volatile organic solvents.
By mid-afternoon, however, someone in their wisdom at the London Weather Centre decided they did not actually observe snow after all, rather ice pellets

Blasting with dry ice pellets
removes old coatings, rust and dirt without damaging the substrate below, but unlike other blast media, on impact the pellets are converted into a gas and released into the atmosphere, making the process dust and contaminant free, The technique is particularly suitable for cleaning detailed or delicate components and in markets such as food processing, electronics or pharmaceuticals where contamination or surface damage cannot be tolerated.
I looked out through the steamy window against which ice pellets

Newly formed ice pellets
become heavy as they collect freezing water droplets.
Most dry-ice blasters are either fixed or portable machines that mix ice pellets
with pressurized air.
