Vaccine Logistics: ASCO CARBON DIOXIDE LTD Develops Solutions for Dry Ice Production Including Packaging

ASCO CARBON DIOXIDE LTD is expanding its product portfolio with customizable dry ice filling and transfer systems for on-site production centers. Especially when shipping the COVID-19 vaccine worldwide, an unbroken cold chain down to -80 degrees Celsius and effective work processes are crucial.

The new dry ice filling system is reportedly compatible with all ASCO pelletizers and, in its standard version, consists of two dry ice production lines with dry ice dosing units and a conveyor system depending on capacity requirements. This enables automated pre-filling of (shipping) boxes with freshly produced dry ice.

The ASCO dry ice refilling system is particularly suitable for the pharmaceutical, logistics and food industries when the dry ice is already purchased ready-made. With the new solution, the dry ice delivered in containers from the supplier, can be transferred to the dosing unit by a lifting process. From there, weight-based dosing of the dry ice through predefined recipes enables automatic filling into customer boxes.

Since maintaining the cold chain is of crucial importance, especially in the food and pharmaceutical sectors, ASCO CARBON DIOXIDE LTD has been concentrating intensively on the provision of the two dry ice filling systems in recent weeks. The challenges of shipping COVID-19 vaccines, producing a large quantity of dry ice in a short time and dosing it into shipping boxes, reinforced the company’s efforts in this regard.
