About Dry Ice

What is Dry Ice?

Dry Ice is carbon dioxide (CO2) in its solid form. It is extremely cold at (-78°C or -109.3°F) and changes from a solid matter to gas. We call this sublimation. It will not turn into liquid which is why it is called Dry Ice

Our Dry Ice is non-toxic, Food Grade and is colourless, odourless, and non-flammable.
It is made from the same gas that is added to water to make soda water.

When Dry Ice is at normal air temperature, it quickly sublimates – that is, it evaporates (Sublimates) directly from a solid form to a gas. That is why it produces intriguing effects and has many uses ranging from Heavy Industry and Mining to Home Entertainment.

When dry ice is used no new carbon dioxide is produced. Instead, only the original carbon dioxide by-product is released. When Dry Ice converts to gas it simply returns to the atmosphere, where it came from in the first place – therefore that is an eco-friendly carbon-neutral process.

 

Dry Ice WA supply 3mm and 10mm Dry Ice Pellets

3mm Dry Ice

Our high density 3mm dry ice offers longer shelf life and maximum cleaning ability.

These thin straw like Dry Ice pellets approximately 3mm in diameter are of high density and provide the best performance for Dry Ice Blasting, a process where Dry Ice is accelerated in a pressurized air stream and directed at a surface in order to clean it.

This revolutionary, environmentally friendly, high pressure cleaning method has many benefits to that of conventional high pressure cleaning methods 3mm Dry Ice pellets are also used in food production, transportation, laboratories and shrink fitting..

 

10mm Dry Ice

10mm Dry Ice is a larger nugget style roughly 10mm in diameter
It has many uses including special effects, transportation, cooling, shrinking

We have 10mm Dry Ice available for collection from Monday to Friday without the need to order

 

Dry Ice Safety

Safety is our first priority.

Dry Ice may be hazardous if incorrectly handled.

It’s important to know how to use Dry Ice safely:

Do not let skin come into contact with Dry Ice – always use a scoop, heavy duty gloves or tongs.

While carbon dioxide gas is always present in the atmosphere, it is important to ensure good ventilation around Dry Ice transport and storage so that as carbon dioxide gas escapes it is kept at safe levels around you and others.
