Animals breathe out carbon dioxide that is used by plants for photosynthesis. Hence it is a natural part of our atmosphere. It is also a by-product of various industrial purposes that is solidified in a complicated process. This solid form of carbon dioxide is known as dry ice.
The name ‘dry ice’ comes from the fact that it doesn’t melt into a puddle of water like the regular ice. Dry ice sublimes into gas and doesn’t leave any residue. This is why it is considered the most efficient material for blasting. Feel free to contact us for dry ice blasting equipment and ice delivery in Dubai and Abu Dhabi

Tips for handling dry ice
Dry ice records a temperature of -109.3°F or -78.5°C. It is a freezing product and can lead to frostbite or severe burns. Also inhaling carbon dioxide in massive quantities may prove fatal to your health. Hence it is necessary to handle dry ice with care.

Handle carefully- Never pick the dry ice directly with your hands. Always use a mitten, insulated glove, thick towels or use tongs to handle dry ice.
Transportation- Dry ice delivery in Dubai and Abu Dhabi should never be done in a closed van. As the ice turns into carbon dioxide, the pressure inside the van will rise and may lead to a blast. Hence always carry dry ice delivery in Dubai and Abu Dhabi in a well-ventilated space.
Storage- Storing dry ice is a task. Primarily keep it away from kids and pets and make sure that the room is well ventilated. This allows carbon dioxide to escape into the atmosphere. Otherwise, the excess amount of it will be fatal for the humans and animals nearby leading to severe respiratory and other issues. Do not refrigerate as there are chances that the thermostat shuts off due to severe cold.
