Dry Ice

What is Dry Ice?

Dry Ice is used for freezing. This is its fundamental purpose. At a temperature of minus 109 degrees Fahrenheit, its very presence in a confined area creates chilled to freezing temperatures depending on the quantity used.

It is made of Carbon Dioxide gas that is compressed into a solid form. Because of its gaseous origin, Dry Ice sublimates (returns to a gas) it does not melt. Once solidified, it is a very dense mass. This makes it relatively heavy for its dimensions. A 50# block for example only measures 10” high by 9” square.

Dry Ice is harmless to foods unless there is direct physical contact which can cause the food to burn at the spot where contact was made, otherwise there is no danger from its cooling effect.

Dry Ice does displace oxygen so never enter a confined room alone where large amounts of Dry Ice exists. Get out of the room as soon as you start to feel a shortness of breath.
