- Dry Ice is EXTREMELY COLD (-109.3 degrees F) and causes injuries similar to burns on contact with skin, especially wet skin. Wear eye protection and gloves while working with dry ice.

- Do not put dry ice in your mouth or swallow it.

- Do not put dry ice in sealed containers or bottles. Injury may result when the container bursts from the build up of pressure as the CO2 converts from solid to gas form.

- Dry ice is brittle and can be broken into more manageable chunks using a hammer. Do not place on tile or Formica as the extreme cold will break the bonding agent. Use a wooden cutting board.

- 10 pounds of dry ice will completely disappear in 24 hours. It may be stored in an ice chest or a Styrofoam container (i.e. insulated and non-airtight). IT WILL FREEZE ANY FOOD SHARING THE CONTAINER!

- Do not store in a frost-free refrigerator or freezer since the increased air flow in these appliances will dramatically decrease the life of the dry ice.
Keep dry ice wrapped in newspaper or paper bag stored in an ice chest for longest life and best results.

Uses for Dry Ice

Camping & Fishing - Campers and fishermen use dry ice to keep perishables frozen when their trips take them away from modern conveniences.

Cloud Seeding - Crushed dry ice is sometimes used to enhance the possibility of precipitation by disbursing the dry ice in clouds which lowers the temperature of the clouds thereby reducing the amount of moisture they can retain.

Converting to Liquid CO2 - Special converters can convert dry ice back to liquid CO2 (dry ice is solid carbon dioxide) for storage and use in pressurized vessels.

Electricity Failure - Unfortunate circumstances sometimes result in power outages which puts stored perishables at risk. Dry ice placed in freezers or refrigerators will prevent frozen and refrigerated perishables from spoiling.

Fog Machines - Special fog machines available from theatrical companies have the capability of producing large amounts of fog effect for special events.

Food Processing - Meat, seafood, poultry, and other food processors use dry ice directly in the processing of their food.

Gas Tank Inserting - Fire department regulations in most locations require dry ice to be placed in both vehicle and underground gas tanks prior to performing work on them such as welding or prior to removal. carbon dioxide displaces the oxygen which substantially reduces the fire hazard. Check with your local fire authority.

Grain Storage - The carbon dioxide vapor reduces the chance of harmful insects surviving and by displacing the oxygen also reduces the fire hazard.

Laboratory and Clinical Test and Procedures - Laboratories use dry ice in certain tests where keeping specimens very cold is required.

Laboratory specimen Shipping - Blood shipments and other samples can be preserved and bacteria growth controlled by using dry ice.

Moles/Gophers - Carbon dioxide vapor from dry ice is heavier than air and will sink and follow the contours of tunnel matrices and displace the oxygen in the tunnels.

Moving - When moving to a new city or relocating to a new house, dry ice used in freezers and/or refrigerators can save your expensive meats and perishables while in transit.

Plant Propagation - Carbon dioxide gas, vital for plant existence, is provided by dry ice as it changes from a solid to a gas, which occurs naturally in the warmth of air.

Root Beer - Recipes are available for "getting a fizz" in homemade root beer.

Shipping Perishable Products - We can provide a full line of insulated shipping box sizes suitable for any air or ground shipping to satisfy the needs of our customers who need to ship frozen products.

Shrinking Bearings and other Metal Parts - the extreme cold of dry ice makes it useful for shrinking bearings, shafts, and other machine and metal parts prior to assembly of certain machines and tools.

Tile Removal - Dry ice placed on top of Formica, linoleum, and asbestos floor tile will dislodge the bonding agent used to attach them. this method also has the benefit of preserving the tiles after removal.
