If you are looking into purchasing some dry ice, then you have come to the right spot. But before you buy your ice, there are a few things that you need to know. Since dry ice is such a versatile but unique product, it’s a good idea to educate yourself on some of its most fundamental properties. Read on to learn a few of the most common dry ice questions that most buyers have!
Where Do I Buy Dry Ice?
Dry ice blocks or pellets can usually be ordered from industrial gas supplies, welding companies, and other regional suppliers. Dry ice can be picked up from suppliers directly, or most major metropolitan areas have delivery trucks that cover large radiuses. Dry ice is also able to be shipped using a common carrier and is delivered within insulated containers. You could produce your very own dry ice with a pelletizer too. The Dry Ice Corporation is one of the local ice suppliers along the east coast.
How Can I Store Dry Ice and How Long Will It Last?
Dry ice should be stored within an insulated container, which is provided by the supplier and picked up by them once needed. The thicker the insulation, the slower it’ll all sublimate. Depending on the thickness and climate of your container, typically dry ice sublimation is around two percent to ten percent per day.
How much Dry Ice is Needed?
The total amount of dry ice needed to clean effectively varies from application to application but can vary drastically with each dry ice blasting system. The average dry ice consumption for blasting equipment ranges widely too.
Is it Possible to Make My Own Dry Ice?
Dry ice can be created on-demand using a dry ice production machine, otherwise known as a pelletizer. Producing your own dry ice has to be economically viable, and the amount of dry ice used on a weekly and basis has to be considered.
