Product Description

The Bel-Art Frigimat dry ice maker, Japanese model number 388780013 by Scienceware, is used to create small amounts of dry ice in a laboratory or other setting. Dry ice is used to keep a substance or object cold in food handling and shipping, science, and medical applications, and is used to create a fog-type of atmosphere in the entertainment industry. This dry ice maker uses the time-tested Joule-Thompson (also called Joule-Kelvin or Kelvin-Joule) effect for gas expansion in a vacuum to produce dry ice. With this throttling process, CO2 will cool upon expansion. In approximately one to two minutes, the dry ice maker produces one solid, 454-gram block of dry ice that measures 11.0 (l) x 8.5 (w) cm [4.65 (l) x 3.65 (w) inches]. The block can be removed from the unit approximately 30 seconds after formation. Each 50-lb. cylinder of liquid CO2 (LCO2) with dip tube makes eight blocks of dry ice. The dry ice maker has an epoxy-coated steel frame, and an aluminum ice chamber for strength and dependability. Brass valves add strength and security. It has four non-skid rubber feet to prevent sliding, or skidding.

This dry ice maker includes a 1.8-meter (6-foot) nickel-plated copper connecting tube with standard CGA 320 (0.830-inch to 14-inch) thread couplings for attachment to an LCO2 cylinder (not included). It is a Japanese model for direct connection to an LCO2 tank. Threads on the LCO2 tank (supplied by tank manufacturer) must match Japanese model. Dry ice must be handled using insulated cryogenic gloves (sold separately). The dry ice maker’s dimensions are 30 (l) x 17 (h) x 13 (w) cm [12 (l) x 6.5 (h) x 5 (w) inches], and it weighs 7.9 lbs. with valve attachment. Dry ice temperature is -109.3 degrees F (-78.5 degrees C).

Dry ice, the solid form of carbon dioxide (CO2), is commonly used as a cooling agent when temperatures lower than conventional ice are desired, and liquid melt-water is not desired. Dry ice is made by compressing and cooling the gas form of CO2 until it becomes liquefied. With expansion, the liquid changes into a solid state, and is then hydraulically compressed into dry ice blocks, pellets or slices. Rather than melting, dry ice sublimates, turning back into gas, as the temperature rises. Under specific conditions, dry ice can create a fog-like effect. It is much heavier than frozen H2O, and can be handled using insulated cryogenic gloves for thermal protection. Dry ice is used in laboratory, and field applications in the food handling and shipping, medical, science, education, industrial cleaning, fire-fighting, and entertainment industries.

Since 1946, Bel-Art has been manufacturing and distributing scientific equipment such as lab ware, dry ice makers, desiccators, glassware, testing equipment, and safety supplies for the scientific and medical industries. With worldwide distribution, and facilities located in New Jersey, Maryland and Missouri, most Bel-Art products are manufactured in the USA. Bel-Art is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Presidential “E” Award by the US Department of Commerce for excellence in export sales.

Frigimat Dry Ice Makers

Frigimat Cub - Dry Ice Maker

This compact device saves the time and expense of receiving a dry ice delivery. Set-up and use is safe and simple. Can be attached to a liquid CO2 cylinder equipped with a dip tube to produce a ready-to-use 250 to 350 gram block of dry ice in only a few minutes. Each 50lb. cylinder makes from 10-16 blocks of dry ice. Dry ice production can be viewed through the transparent polycarbonate body that secures without clamps, screws or tools ensuring easy removal of the solid block of dry ice and disconnection from the CO2 cylinder. The lightweight body is never as cold as the dry ice, even when filled, allowing safe transport of the unit and contents when wearing appropriate gloves. A rugged nickel-plated 'pigtail' connects it to the CO2 cylinder valve which is used to regulate gas flow. Operates at very low pressure (displayed on the built-in dial gauge) and incorporates multiple pressure relief safeguards. Includes a 1.8m (6 feet) nickel-plated copper connecting tube with standard CGA 320 thread coupling for easy attachment to a LCO2 cylinder. Dimensions: 14.4 x 19.4 x 16.5cm (5⅝ x 7⅝ x 6½ inches) with valve attached.

Frigimat Junior Dry Ice Maker

Dry ice flakes are useful for packing around irregularly shaped items and are easily produced as needed with the Frigimat Junior Dry Ice Maker, F38886-0000, F38886-0002, F38886-0003. A brass nozzle screws onto any liquid LCO2 cylinder equipped with a dip tube. When the cylinder valve is opened about ¾ turn, LCO2 expands into the bag to create dry ice snow. The valve is then closed and the bag is ready to be removed and emptied. Makes .77kg (1.7lb) of flakes per bag. The unit cone measures 13cmL (5 inch) x 5.1cm diameter (2 inch) at end. The bag is 15 watt x 30cmL (6 x 12 inches).

Frigimat Dry Ice Maker

This ice maker, H38878-0010, H38878-0012, or H38878-0013 eliminates the need to buy large quantities of dry ice when only a little is needed. It employs the Joule- Thomson effect to produce a solid 454gm (16 oz) block of dry ice in one to two minutes, and the block can be removed in just 30 seconds. A brass relief valve safely vents excess gas. Each 50lb. cylinder of liquid CO2 with a dip tube will make 8 or 9 blocks of dry ice, each measuring 8.5cm (3⅜ inch) x 11cm (4⅜ inch) long. Made of epoxy-coated steel with an aluminum ice chamber and brass valves with four non-skid rubber feet. Includes a 1.8m (6 feet) nickel plated copper connecting tube with standard CGA 320 (0.830 inch-14) thread couplings for easy attachment to an LCO2 cylinder. Dimensions: 30 x 17 x 13cmH (12 x 6½ x 5 inches).

Economy Frigimat Dry Ice Maker

This economy unit, H38876-0000, H38876-0002, or H38876-0003 produces a solid 454gm (16oz) block of dry ice in one to two minutes. Each 50lb. cylinder of liquid CO2 with a dip tube will make 8 or 9 blocks of dry ice measuring 9.2 x 10.4cmL (3⅝ x 4 inches). The polyethylene ice chamber is held in place by a metal clamping mechanism, and a porous polyethylene diffusion plate vents excess gas. Also features a built-in gas pressure gauge and relief valve. The epoxy-coated steel frame has four non-skid rubber feet to prevent sliding. Includes a 1.8m (6 feet) nickel plated copper connecting tube with standard CGA 320 (0.830 inch-14) thread couplings for easy attachment to a LCO2 cylinder. Overall dimensions are 37 x 14 x 15cmH (14¾ x 5½ x 6 inches).
