Dry Ice Facts

Here are a few important facts to know about dry ice. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. We’re experts in dry ice!

Ice in your freezer at home is water (H2O) that becomes a solid at or below 32°F (0°C). Dry ice, on the other hand, does not consist of water but is carbon dioxide (C02) in its solid form. Dry ice forms at -109.3°F (-78.5°C).

Unlike normal ice, which when melted goes from a solid to a liquid state, dry ice transforms directly from the solid to the gaseous state without becoming a liquid. This transformation is called “sublimation.”

Carbon dioxide vapor, released during sublimation, can cause asphyxiation in a confined area, so be careful!

Special Effects With Dry Ice

Fog

For each 30 minute period 5 to 10 pounds of dry ice into 4 to 8 gallons of hot water (the warmer the water, the more fog you will create). You can help control the direction of the fog with a small fan.

Witch's Brew

Place dry ice inside a metal or plastic cauldron or punch bowl. Add 1 pound of dry ice per gallon of punch. Ladle punch into cup without any dry ice and it will be safe for consumption.

DO NOT PLACE DRY ICE IN MOUTH!
