Dry Ice is solid state Carbon Dioxide (CO2).
Dry Ice production takes place by means of an early expansion phase of liquid state CO2 changing into solid “ carbonicsnow”.
Carbonic snow is subsequently compressed into various available shapes of dry ice.
- - Blocks
- - Cut Blocks
- - Packaged Slices
- - 16 mm Pellets
- - 3 mm Pellets
Carbon Dioxide used by Dryce in food industry has got the necessary purity requirements as provided in regulations in force.
The temperature of Dry Ice at atmospheric pressure is extremely low (-78°C); this characteristic, combined with high latent heat of sublimation ( 140Kcal/Kg ) and with heat transfer at uniform temperature, makes the Dry Ice essential for many industrial applications, such as cooling and temperature maintenance.
As a matter of fact, Dry Ice, with an equal weight, provides a refrigerant capacity equal to 170% compared with ordinary water ice (80 Kcal/Kg).
