The purpose of this paper is to investigate heat transfer in the course of ice particle fabrication. The particles propelled by compressed air were used for surface processing. The ice particles were produced in a parallel flow heat exchanger fed with water and liquid nitrogen. The stresses generated in the ice in the course of freezing resulted in formation of ice particles.The particles size was determined by the stress field. In this work the numerical investigation, based on the previously acquired experimental data, was carried out and the effect of the device productivity on the rate of heat exchange was determined. These results will be used in the design of industrial scale system for powder production.
