What Are Dry Ice Pellets? How To Use Them?

Dry Ice Pellets

Dry Ice is solidified carbon dioxide which does not convert into liquid at normal atmospheric levels. Dry ice has the property to convert directly into a gas state when exposed to normal temperature. Dry ice comes in various shapes and sizes but dry ice pellets are higher in demand due to their easy application across industries. Find out more about them below.

What is Dry Ice?

Dry ice is the solid state of carbon dioxide which sublimates or freezes at the temperature of -78 degrees celsius. The process of solidifying carbon dioxide is known as deposition while the process of CO2 changing from solid to gas state is called sublimation.  

How is Dry Ice Made?

Dry ice is made with reclaimed carbon dioxide. High-concentration carbon dioxide gas which may be a byproduct of other gases is used to make dry ice. The carbon dioxide-rich gas is filtered to get rid of other gases or impurities. When the gas becomes 99.9% pure, it is pressurized and refrigerated for liquefaction at -78.5 Degrees Celsius. At the next stage, the pressure is reduced which causes some liquid carbon dioxide to vaporize. It also lowers the temperature further causing the remaining carbon dioxide to solidify. Hence, the carbon dioxide is converted into snow-like dry ice.   

What are the forms of Dry Ice?

The snow-like dry ice is compressed into the following forms:

Dry ice blocks

  • Dry Ice Large Blocks
  • Dry Ice Pellets
