DESCRIPTION

Solid Carbon Dioxide (CO2), most commonly known as Dry Ice, is very cold: -78° C. It sublimes by taking up heat from the surroundings i.e. turns directly from a solid into an asphyxiant gas that is heavier than air.

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.

My Gas supplies premium quality, high density dry ice in the form of pellets, slices, blocks which are stored in specialised insulated dry ice containers.

Dry Ice Pellets are useful for the following applications:
Blasting
Cold Storage
Medical Transportation
Special effects
