Dry Ice or CO2 in solid form, is obtained by expanding liquid CO2 at atmospheric pressure. During that process, half the liquid CO2 turns into gas while the other half turns into CO2 snow. This CO2 snow is compressed in hydraulic presses, creating ice blocks, slices or pellets. Dry Ice is a simple but ingenious product with major advantages and many industrial applications.
Standard production is pellets (diameter 3/10/16 mm) or blocks with dimensions 120x120x20-50 mm, weight of each block approximately 400 g.
In thermo-insulated environment dry ice can last up to 6 days.
It is possible to produce dry ice on occasion with the Dry Ice Box.
