Dry Ice Production FAQs:
How is dry ice made?
Dry ice is the solid form of carbon dioxide (CO2). In order to create dry ice, recycled CO2 gas is pressurized and cooled to form liquid CO2 (LCO2) and is then injected into a pelletizer, or dry ice production unit. Within the pelletizer, the pressurized LCO2 is released to atmospheric pressure, which causes it to solidify into a snow-like consistency. This is then compressed into pellets, blocks, or slabs.
Can I make my own dry ice?
Dry ice can be produced on demand using a dry ice production machine (pelletizer or slice maker). Producing your own dry ice must be economically viable and the amount of dry ice used on a daily and weekly basis must be considered.
Pelletizers, slice makers, and reformers can be equipped with multiple dies to produce a range of extrusion sizes (3mm to 19mm) and final product size. Dry ice production equipment can produce, dose, and package multiple sizes of dry ice for a broad range of solutions.
Should I make my own dry ice?
In the right situation, making your own dry ice can save you a lot of time and money while eliminating headaches. Producing your own dry ice can give you greater control over your production, processing, and cold chain management systems, while also reducing waste and cutting operational costs.
By answering a few simple questions, you can determine whether producing your own dry ice is right for you. Those questions include:
- How much dry ice do you consume weekly/monthly?
- What are your current delivery costs?
- Is dry ice a part of a critical path in your operation?
- Do you waste a lot of dry ice per week?
- Does your facility have a CO2 tank and three-phase power?
