Dry Ice :-
Dry ice is made by liquefying carbon dioxide and injecting it into a holding tank, where it’s frozen at a temperature of -109° F and compressed into solid ice. Depending on whether it’s created in a pelletizer or a block press, dry ice can then be made into pellets or large blocks.
Unlike regular ice, dry ice doesn’t melt into a liquid as it warms up. Instead, it converts directly back into its gaseous form in a process known as sublimation. At -109° F, dry ice is also significantly colder than the 32° F surface temperature of regular ice.
What Is the Dry Ice Formula?
Dry ice has just one ingredient: carbon dioxide. Technicians create dry ice by pumping liquid carbon dioxide into holding tanks, which reduces the temperature to -109° F and pressurizes the substance.
