Solid Carbon Dioxide (Dry Ice): Introduction

  • Dry ice is a solid form of carbon dioxide that is primarily used as a refrigerant and cooling agent. It does not leave any residue, since it is a form of solid carbon dioxide. It is known as dry ice as it is processed through sublimation. Once heated, it changes directly into a gas instead of melting into liquid. Dry ice possesses lower temperature as compared to water ice. This is a major advantage of dry ice. 
  • The dry ice mechanism involves compressing the gaseous form of carbon dioxide, followed by cooling to the liquefied form of CO2. The liquefied form goes through pressurized expansion to obtain dry ice, sometimes also known as solid carbon dioxide. Dry ice is frequently used than water-based ice due to its relatively low temperature (-78°C).
  • Dry ice is non-combustible and non-toxic as compared to other forms of refrigerants. It is used in the industrial sector to conserve frozen foods where mechanical cooling is unattainable. It is also employed in industrial cleaning. Dry ice is used in the blasting method, which helps clean contaminants such as ink, dirt, mold release agents, paint, oil, and glue. This is a proficient and cost efficient method for industries to improve quality and production capability. Dry ice is also used in restoration of buildings that are damaged in fire accidents.

Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Solid Carbon Dioxide (Dry Ice) Market
