Regis Dry Ice Supplies offers the best solidified carbon dioxide blocks you can buy. Used in our containers, lasts much longer than any other dry ice blocks of equivalent size.
Dry Ice Usages
Airline Catering, Cold Grinding, Cooling for the Chemical Industry, Cooling for the Food Industry, Dry Ice Blast Cleaning, Distribution within the Pharmaceutical Industry, Freeze Branding, Freeze Drying, Plumbing Pipe Repairs, Shrink Fitting, Special Effects, Storage and Transportation
The Airline industry uses dry ice for in-flight catering, keeping food chilled or frozen until ready to prepare/serve.
Cold grinding can produce uniform size particles of any material whether rubber, plastic, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, or herbs and spices.
Cooling for the Chemical Industry
The extreme cold of dry ice can be used to slow or even stop some chemical reactions
Cooling for the Food Industry
By adding dry ice to meat before mincing, not only keeps the meat cold but it also eliminates the growth of bacteria reducing spoilage.
Distribution within the Pharmaceutical Industry
Its commonly used to transport biological samples and temperature sensitive biomedical/pharmacological products.
Dry Ice Blast Cleaning
Blast cleaning is an environmentally friendly method of surface cleaning.
Freeze branding is a painless, humane and permanent method of livestock identification and is now used in preference to hot branding.
Common practice used in preserving and extending shelf-life of organic products, food and high-value pharmaceuticals.
Plumbing Pipe Repairs
Many plumbers use it to freeze pipes.
Shrink fitting is commonly used in engineering to fit together bearings, collars, shafts and other components that require an interference fit.
Creates stunning visual effects for weddings, Halloween parties, birthday parties, pubs, nightclubs, Photos and Movies to list a few.
Storage and Transportation
Enables products like foods, medical samples and vaccines to remain cold in transit.

DRY ICE IS STRICTLY NOT FOR CONSUMPTION!
It is used only for cooling.
The temperature of dry ice is extremely cold at -109°F or -78°C. Do not allow dry ice to touch bare skin. Dry ice in contact with skin may result in frostbite. Prolonged exposure will cause severe frostbite. Always wear protective gloves whenever handling dry ice. Adults must never leave dry ice in the possession of children. Children must not handle dry ice.
Dry Ice will sublimate into carbon dioxide (CO2) gas. Store dry ice in an insulated container - the better the insulation, the slower the dry ice sublimation. Do not store dry ice in a refrigerator or a freezer (unless the dry ice is being used to maintain the proper holding temperature). Do not store dry ice in an airtight container; never store in a glass container. The sublimation of dry ice into carbon dioxide gas will cause an airtight container to expand, rupture or burst. Always store dry ice in a well ventilated area. Avoid storing dry ice in unventilated rooms, cellars, autos or boat holds. The sublimated carbon dioxide gas will sink to low areas and replace oxygenated air. Carbon dioxide gas at elevated concentrations may be fatal when breathed. Some surfaces left in direct contact with dry ice may be damaged by the extreme cold. Adhesives may become brittle and break.
Air is composed of 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen and only 0.035% carbon dioxide (CO2). If the concentration of CO2 in the air rises above 0.5%, it can become dangerous. Lower concentrations - i.e. below 0.5% - can cause accelerated, laboured breathing and headache. If dry ice has been in a closed auto, van, room or walk-in refrigerator for more than 10 minutes, open doors and allow adequate ventilation before entering. Leave the area immediately if breathing becomes difficult, or if dizziness, headache or light-headed feeling is noticed. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is heavier than air and will accumulate in low spaces. Do not enter closed dry ice storage areas without first fully ventilating the space.
