Dry ice supplier for Rochester and Buffalo

There is a large hospitality and tourism industry here in Western New York, and many businesses rely on dry ice, such as restaurants, commercial kitchens, breweries, and brewpubs.

Dry ice is also an essential supply for medical facilities. It’s used in cryotherapy applications for procedures such as removing warts, moles, and precancerous skin lesions. It is also needed for keeping vaccines, organs, blood cells, tissue samples, and other biological materials preserved at a safe temperature.

For an efficient and eco-friendly cleaning solution, you can rely on dry ice blast-cleaning to get the job done. It’s a powerful method for deep-cleaning industrial machinery quickly and easily.

Businesses trust dry ice to keep their perishable products safe and at the optimal temperature during shipping and delivery, saving them from having to deal with any potential damage or mess caused by traditional ice packs and gel packs, which tend to melt.

Types of dry ice available

How long does dry ice last?

Here is one of the dry ice’s biggest advantages over conventional water-based ice and gel packs.

Ten pounds of dry ice lasts for 24 hours in a standard cooler. Outdoors, it would last between 3 and 5 hours—and then up to 45 minutes as a liquid. These times can vary a great deal depending on factors such as the size of the dry ice block and the quality of the cooler.

Tips for maximizing the life expectancy of your dry ice include:

  • use a well-insulated, pre-chilled quality cooler
  • purchase your dry ice as close as possible to when you will be using it
  • use the largest bricks possible to lengthen the time before sublimation
  • keep water away from the dry ice
