Applications

Food & Beverage

  • In-Transit Refrigeration – Dry ice provides superior cooling capacity and long-term temperature consistency to reduce risk of spoilage.

  • Refrigeration efficiency and bacteria retardation abilities make dry ice ideal.

  • Mixing & Blending – Reduces labor and space requirements in mixing/blending operations, such as firming meat products.

  • In-Flight Food Refrigeration – Creates a more reliable and cost effective alternative for refrigerating food.

Manufacturing

  • Molded Product Deflashing – Dry ice eliminates the flashings where mold sections are joined; saves trimming and buffing costs.

  • Low Temperature Grinding – Reduces heat to sensitive materials during grinding operations; prevents softening and melting.

  • Shrink Fitting – Ensures easy assembly of machined metal products, such as collars and seats that require a tight fit.

  • Low Temperature Testing – Used as a refrigerant for testing products by simulating ambient temperatures down to -109°F.

  • Repairs – Facilitates tasks such as loosening asphalt floor tiles and other bonded materials by causing shrinking to help break bond.

Medical

  • Shipment of Pharmaceutical Supplies – Dry ice is ideal for use as a refrigerant in pharmaceutical shipments.

  • Shipment of Blood, Organs – Used as a refrigerant for shipments of blood and organs; Carbon Dioxide is stable, secure resource.

  • Biological Samples Storage – Ideal as a refrigerant of biological samples.

    Water Treatment.

  • pH Control for Swimming Pools – Dry ice maintains required pH levels in swimming pools, providing a safe, clean and cost effective alternative.

Metallurgy

  • Shrink Fitting – Dry ice ensures easy assembly of machined metal products, such as collars and seats that require a tight fit.

  • Low Temperature Testing – Used as a refrigerant for testing products by simulating ambient temperatures down to -109°F.

  • Annealed Aluminum Cold Storage – Retains the alloy’s annealed state until thawed, facillitating large-scale production of aluminum riveted structures including aircraft and space vessels

    Maintenance & Repair

  • Blast Cleaning – Dry ice is used in place of sand and other media to provide safer, more efficient cleaning.

  • Purging & Inerting – Highly effective for purging vessels, pipelines and other containers of explosive or combustible vapors.

Party, Shows and Celebrations

If you supply dry ice in hot water (> 40 °C), it produces a thick white smoke and being heavier than air tends to move towards the floor, forming a cloud effect much appreciated both in shows and during the celebration of weddings and other celebrations. The effect lasts until the water temperature is above 20 °C; It emphasizes the increasing temperature and decreases with decreasing. Usually the amount of water to use is equal to about 8 liters of hot water per kg of dry ice. There is a chance to use machines that are also equipped with heating, keeping the water temperature above 40 °C.

Cooling Cells

Dry ice is used as a coolant to keep in temperature cooling cells that block or malfunctioning refrigerator group them subservient, have problems in maintaining the temperature at the desired level. Dry ice must be placed above the product contained in the cell or in the proximity of the fans of evaporators. The use of dry ice, it must be remembered that it develops CO2 sublimando; Once placed in the cell, we must be careful when entering into the cell itself, because it will be saturated with CO2 and therefore not easily breathable air. You will need to open the doors of the cell for a few minutes to let CO2 out of the cell itself.

Acqueduct Maintenance

Dry ice can be used for freezing sections of the aqueduct in order to restore the damaged pipes. Positioning of dry ice on the external wall of pipes it is possible to freeze the water contained in the pipeline, blocking the flow of water. To remove layers of protective material previously attached with adhesives to hold strong, can be used dry ice, as the rapid cooling leads to shrinkage of the material and the breaking of the adhesive layer. Freezing of aquifers, and is also used in the construction of bridges and dams, to freeze the water contained in watertight compartments, so as to allow filling with landfill or cement. The application is extremely simple; just throw blocks of ice inside the water for freezing.
