Dry ice is frozen CO2 and it is a regular part of the atmosphere of earth. It is that same gas that we exhale at the time of breathing, and that plants use during photosynthesis. This gas is stored during various industrial processes and recycled for the making of dry ice. It is beneficial particularly in freezing and keeping things frozen for a long time at a frigid temperature like -78.5 centigrade or -109.3 Fahrenheit. Dry ice is known because the freezing process is straightforward and easy to handle with the help of insulated gloves. The name is dry ice because it sublimes from the solid state to gaseous state in normal temperature rapidly. Sublimation is when a particle goes from a solid state to a gaseous state without becoming liquid. The dry ice sublimates at the rate of 5 to 10 pounds in every 2 hours in the conventional ice chest.
Why is dry ice used?
Every industry uses dry ice for a variety of purposes. You know the artificial fog that is at Halloween parties? That is dry ice. It does not hurt your body if handled correctly. Medical and industrial facilities use dry ice to clean their equipment. The process of cleaning using dry ice is called dry ice blasting. It is a great disinfectant and doesn't leave any chemical residue, which makes it attractive as a cleaning agent. The medical field also uses dry ice as a refrigerant. When transporting body parts, organs, blood, and other medical items from one hospital or medical facility to another, they use dry ice to keep everything cold. Dry is preferred over regular ice as its temperature is -109.3 degrees Fahrenheit while that of the standard ice is just 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Again, while regular ice melts and leaves water dry ice directly sublimes to a gaseous state.
