The Dry Ice Life Cycle and its Use

Dry ice is formed by compressing liquid CO2 into snow. Dry ice is used primarily for refrigeration, but its cooling properties make it a perfect catalyst for freezing, stabilizing, preparing and shipping items in temperatures as low as -109℉ as well. Many companies choose dry ice for their refrigeration and freezing needs because of its cooling abilities and lack of water or residue.

Why Choose Airgas Dry Ice?

Airgas Dry Ice uses patented, high-density pellet machines and hydraulic block presses to produce dry ice for food, beverage, industrial and shipping and cleaning applications. Dry ice blasting is an environmentally friendly cleaning technology that has become more popular as more companies discover the benefits of eliminating chemicals, reducing labor and simplifying their operations.
