Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR FORMING CARBON DIOXIDE PARTICLES INTO BLOCKS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL POUR FORMER DES BLOCS À PARTIR DE PARTICULES DE DIOXYDE DE CARBONE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus for forming a block from carbon dioxide particle is configured to allow changing between precise thicknesses with very little downtime, utilizing both weight based and volumetric dosing. A spacer supports the lower ejection piston during block forming, with a shuttle discharging particles into the forming chamber while simultaneously pushing a previously formed block on to a conveyor. In one embodiment, the shuttle dosing cavity has a volume that is greater than the volume of the forming chamber volume, which allows more pellets, volumetrically, to be dosed into the dosing cavity than the volume of the forming cavity.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un appareil servant à former un bloc à partir de particules de dioxyde de carbone, l'appareil permettant un changement d'épaisseur précise avec un temps d'arrêt court et utilisant à la fois un dosage basé sur le poids et volumétrique. Une entretoise supporte le piston d'éjection inférieur lors de la formation des blocs, une navette déchargeant les particules dans la chambre de formage tout en poussant simultanément un bloc précédemment formé sur un transporteur. Dans un mode de réalisation, la cavité de dosage de la navette possède un volume qui est supérieur au volume de la chambre de formage, ce qui permet d'introduire un volume de granulés dans la cavité de dosage plus important que le volume de la cavité de formage.
