Dry Ice Market
Dry ice refers to a type of ice that is used as a refrigerant to keep things cold in medical and food industries and generate clouds of smoke in stage shows in entertainment industry. It is a form of solid carbon dioxide that does not leave any residue. It is called dry ice because of the process of sublimation, where upon heated it changes directly into a gas instead of melting into liquid.
Dry ice mechanism involves compressing gaseous form of carbon dioxide followed by cooling to liquefied form of CO2. Further, the liquefied form goes through pressurized expansion to obtain dry ice, sometimes also known as solid carbon dioxide. As compared to water based ice, dry ice is frequently used due to its relatively low temperature (-78°C).
Dry ice is non-combustible and non-toxic in nature as compared to other forms of refrigerants. Dry ice finds its usage in industrial sector for conserving frozen foods where mechanical cooling is unattainable and also in industrial cleaning with the help of dry ice blasting method which cleans contaminants like ink, dirt, mold release agents, paint, oil, and glue among others. This method is a proficient and cost efficient way for industries to hone quality and production capability. It also finds its applications in restoration of buildings that are damaged in fire accidents.
