  Dry Ice FAQ's:

Is dry ice dangerous?
Yes!  Dry ice will cause damage similar to a burn upon contact with the skin.
Do not handle it with bare hands
Do not put it in your mouth
Do not place it in sealed or tightly closed containers

Dry ice will freeze and crack many materials and surfaces. Avoid direct contact with plastics, glass, and ceramics.

Always use with adequate ventilation.  CO2 gas can cause suffocation.  This intensifies when using dry ice for a “smoke” effect in water.

What is Dry Ice?
Dry Ice is nothing more than solid Carbon Dioxide (CO2).  It is formed by a process that compresses liquid CO2 into its solid form.  With a temperature of -109 degrees Fahrenheit, it is much colder than regular ice and perfect for freezing or keeping material cold without the mess of regular ice.  As it sublimates (melts), it leaves no residue behind besides CO2 gas
and some condensation.

How much do I need?
In most cases 10lbs of dry ice will last about 24 hours while
insulated in a standard cooler.  Larger pieces will last considerably longer, up to 60 hours for a solid 20lb piece, for example.  When the ice is exposed to open air or large air gaps (such as in a refrigerator or a large cooler) the time can be cut by more than half.

How do I store dry ice?
Dry ice will last the longest in an insulated container and away from moving air.  Wrapping your ice in a towel or with newspaper helps.  Placing the ice in a freezer to “keep it cold” will only make it disappea
r; the blowing air speeds the sublimation (melting) process.

How do I use dry ice?
For freezing:
Place dry ice on top of material to be kept frozen, being careful to limit direct contact with
food  products.

For cooling:
Place dry ice on the bottom of a cooler and pack with regular ice as normal.  This will keep regular ice frozen for days!  A slice may be placed on the side of a container for a cooling affect, but items near the dry ice may freeze.
NOTE: Fruit, milk, and other unsealed
food products may become carbonated when dry ice is used for cooling or freezing.

Dry ice can be used effectively in large tubs
or
trash cans with regular ice to keep drinks colder, longer at parties and for promotions. 

For power failures:
In the freezer, place items below the dry ice.  In the refrigerator, place items above or beside the dry ice.  Use about 2 lbs for each cubic foot of refrigerator or freezer space.

For “smoke” effect:
Placing dry ice in hot water creates an amazing smoke affect.  As the water cools, the affect will weaken.  It is best to use a hot plate or electric skillet to keep the water hot or replenishing the water often.  Use a few small pieces at a time
and be sure to adequately vent confined areas.


To dispose of:
Place the dry ice in a safe, open area and allow it to dissipate.  Do not allow pets or children near the area.
