Dry ice freezes perishable goods, plant seeds, pharmaceutical products, or medical samples that must be refrigerated while shipping up to 4 days. Dry ice is food-safe and sterile, and is therefore particularly suitable for packages with strict hygiene regulations. Dry ice is not classified as a dangerous substance by the European Union or as a hazardous material by the United States Department of Transportation for delivery on land. However, when shipped by air or sea, it is regulated as a dangerous good and requires specific labels such as the UN 1845, which is a diamond-shaped black-and white label. Hence, it is always important to check the safety and delivery requirements with the shipping company of your choice. We sell suitable Styrofoam boxes with a volume up to 10L and include safety labels.
Imagine you are hosting an event and expecting more guests than there is room in the fridge, or that time when you are spending a few days out on a camping trip or at a festival. On those occasions, you need a plan B for refrigerating and dry ice is the perfect answer. Its unique cooling quality makes dry ice a reliable option that helps you keep food and beverages cold for several days without electricity. More importantly, dry ice is food-safe. And by transitioning directly from solid to gas, it leaves no waste when you are having an enjoyable time out in nature.
Many machines tend to overheat after intensive use, which not only cause production downtime but also, even worse, permanently damage the machines. Dry ice helps you cool your machines externally, which enables them to run longer and will eventually lead to a rise in productivity. As dry ice is not made out of water but carbon dioxide, it is both safe to use on machines because there is no short-circuit hazard and also possible to cool machines down to a significantly lower temperature than traditional ice would.
In metallurgy, dry ice is widely used to cool down hot metal and as an aide for metal forging. It is notably useful for joining carbide on steel shafts, as the steel shrinks more than carbide when cooled down. After reaching room temperature, the pressing manifests and the two components remain fixedly joined.
