Is the solid form of carbon dioxide it is used primarily as a cooling agent its advantages include lower temperature than that of water ice and without leaving any residue.When dry ice is placed in water, sublimation is accelerated, and low-sinking, dense clouds of smoke-like fog are created. This is used in fog machines, at theatres, haunted house attractions, and nightclubs for dramatic effects.
Air Supply offers, food grade dry ice and is widely used in restaurants, bars, and catering companies especially commercial Airlines catering companies.
The most common use of dry ice is to preserve food,using non-cyclic refrigeration. It is frequently used to package items that must remain cold or frozen, such as ice cream or biological samples, without the use of mechanical cooling. Dry ice can be used to flash-freeze food or laboratory biological samples, carbonate beverages, make ice cream, solidify oil spills and stop ice sculptures and ice walls from melting.
Air Supply has its own dedicated team to perform blasting operations in client’s premises,as this is now a highly demanded product for environmental concerns. Blasting is one of the largest mechanical uses of dry ice. Dry ice pellets are shot from a nozzle with compressed air, combining the power of the speed of the pellets with the action of the sublimation. This can remove residues from industrial equipment. Examples of materials removed include ink, glue, oil, paint, mold and rubber. Dry ice blasting can replace sandblasting, steam blasting, water blasting or solvent blasting.
