Snow Horn (Industrial Grade)
Snow generator using liquid CO2 for cooling applications.
IN SITU SNOW PRODUCTION
The food and pharmaceutical industries are our main customers for this unusual, vacuum-insulated system. Dohmeyer’s snow horn is used to create fine snowflakes that are used in other industries : cooling of metals (shrinkage), deburring of rubber (cryogenic deburring) and the chemical neutralisation of solid waste (sub cooling and phlegmatisation of air bags), plastic industries (removal of process-generated heat in extruders, mixers and crushers), etc.
Before expansion, the horn pre-chills the liquefied carbon dioxide in a heat exchanger. This exchange of heat guarantees clog-free production of snow in the expansion chamber. Due to this innovative design, you can mount the horn in any position between 90° (vertical) down to 10° (almost horizontal).
SNOW PRODUCTION CAPACITY
The snow horn can be equipped with a wide range of nozzles. The size of the nozzle determines the rate of snow production: from 0.3kg/min up to 13kg/min of snowflakes.
