Highly recommended for medium or longer term logistics.The larger size of 16mm pellets means that they last much longer than standard logistical dry ice and produce a more sustained and constant thermal effect.
Suitable for short term logistics and dry ice blasting purposes. Our 3mm pellets are some of the densest and hardest available on the market, dramatically increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of dry ice blasting operations. For logistics, their small size means they are suitable for very small packages and samples.
What Is Dry Ice?
Dry Ice Scotland have state of the art manufacturing facilities that extract the liquid CO2 and compress it into our high-density dry ice. The high-density nature of the product requires advanced equipment and allows it to last longer and maintain its low temperature.
Dry Ice is stored in specialist Cryogenic storage boxes. Dry Ice Scotland supply these in various sizes, and they are recommended for storage of over 1-2 days in duration.
Dry Ice is frozen carbon dioxide (CO2) in its solid state. CO2 is usually stored as a liquid under highly pressurised and low temperature conditions. It has a temperature of -78 degrees celsius. As a solid, it can sublimate (“evaporate” into CO2 gas) unless stored in the appropriate conditions.
Dry Ice is used extensively in the transportation of cold products, where refrigeration equipment may not be desirable/available, and can represent a very cost effective solution for cold-chain logistics.
Pharmaceutical & Biotechnology
Dry Ice is an excellent solution for maintaining the critical cryogenic temperatures needed in the storage and transportation of biological samples.
Dry Ice is a space and cost-efficient means of refrigerating perishables and food during long-haul flights.
Dry Ice is an excellent solution for transporting meat, fruit and vegetables for both domestic and long-distance deliveries. The low temperature maintains freshness, and even after sublimation the present CO2 gas acts as an inert but effective preserve.
