Dry Ice

Dry ice in CT, pictured is the dry ice machine used by Crystal Ice company CT to produce dry ice for dry ice delivery throughout CT. About Dry Ice

Dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide.  It is approximately
-109.3 degrees F and is mostly used for shipping or transporting frozen items. Dry ice "sublimates."  Sublimation is the process of turning from a solid to a gas without a liquid phase.  This is a huge advantage when shipping items because there is no watery mess.  Generally, dry ice sublimates at a rate of 5 to 10 pounds every 24 hours when stored in a typical cooler.  Therefore, dry ice should be purchased at the last minute possible.  [Pictured at right is our dry ice machine.]

Dry ice is available in 3 lb. blocks made on our premises, or in larger blocks of up to 50 lbs.:
