What is dry ice?
Dry Ice is frozen carbon dioxide, a normal part of our earth’s atmosphere. It is the gas that we exhale during breathing and the gas that plants use in photosynthesis. It is also the same gas commonly added to water to make soda water. Dry Ice is particularly useful for freezing, and keeping things frozen because of its very cold temperature: -109.3°F or -78.5°C. Dry Ice is widely used because it is simple to freeze and easy to handle using insulated gloves.
What temperature is the surface of dry ice?
Dry ice has a surface temperature between -78 and -110 degrees Celsius.
Does dry ice melt?
No. Dry ice goes through a process called “sublimation” in which a solid substance skips the liquid state and changes directly into a gaseous state.
What should dry ice be put into, to insulate it?
A “kraft” paper bag will reduce the sublimation rate on its own. The ice wrapped in the paper should be put into a container which is insulated as much as possible, but NEVER seal the ice into an airtight container due to the pressure.
Does AQUERGY provide containers to ship the dry ice in?
Yes. We offer Styrofoam containers called styro-shippers which can hold various capacities. You can view our packaging products here.
How heavy is dry ice?
A block measuring 8” x 8” x 8” is 10 kg can be prepared on order . A slab measuring 8” x 8” x 2” is 2.5 kg regularly available .
At what rate can I expect the dry ice to sublimate?
As a general rule, dry ice will sublimate at a rate of 1% per hour in a typical ice chest. This sublimation continues from the time of purchase – therefore, pick up dry ice as close to the time needed as possible. Bring an ice chest or some other insulated container to hold the dry ice and slow the sublimation rate. Dry ice changes directly from a solid to a gas – sublimation – in normal atmospheric conditions without going through a wet liquid stage.
What type of industries/people use dry ice?

- Pharmaceutical Companies
- Drug Manufacturers
- Universities & Elementary Schools
