What is Dry Ice?

Dry ice is pure, solid carbon dioxide (CO2) and keeps items colder for much longer than traditional “wet ice” because it is extremely cold, -109 degrees F (-78.5° C). Dry ice sublimates into carbon dioxide gas instead of melting, leaving no liquid mess to clean up, which is why dry ice blasting is such a popular and environmentally friendly way to clean.

How to use Dry Ice:

Dry ice temperature is extremely cold and should be handled with extreme care. Always wear protective clothing or leather gloves whenever touching it.


Forms of Dry Ice:

High Density Dry Ice Pellets

  • 1/8″  and 5/8″ diameter dry ice pellets
  • For use in dry ice blast cleaning systems
  • For use in certain food processing applications


  • 5″ x 5″ x 2″
  • Used primarily in the Biotech medical and food shipping business
  • Dry Ice Standard Pellets
  • 5/8″ diameter dry ice pellets
  • Used primarily in frozen food applications
  • Used in meat processing plants
  • Used for transportation of blood plasma and lab specimens

Slabs of Dry Ice

  • Most common 10x10x2 (10 lbs)
  • Dry ice is available in custom sizes processed and packaged to customer specifications
  • Dry ice may be wrapped in kraft paper or in poly

Block of Dry Ice

  • Standard dry ice block measures 10″ x 10″ x 12″
  • Approximately 60 lbs. each
  • Used for frozen food applications, especially in shipping ice cream
  • Used in grocery warehouses
