What Is Dry Ice Used For?
Safety and Handling
General Safety Measures
Protect Your Hands.
Oven mitts, leather gloves, or thick hand towels can prevent freezer burn when handling dry ice.
DO NOT leave dry ice unattended around children.
Sublimating dry ice gives off a fog (carbon dioxide gas) that can be dangerous if confined. Use dry ice outdoors or in ventilated areas.
Never taste or swallow.
Dry Ice In A Container
We also provide two sizes of coolers: Small (holds up to 15 lbs) and Large (holds up to 50 lbs).
Dry ice can be used in combination with cubes or blocks of water ice. Solid CO2 will help keep frozen H2O longer.
Confine blocks of dry ice in several sheets of newspaper or towels to slow the sublimation process so ice keeps longer.
Pack On Top.
Dry ice can be loaded on top or below food in a container. YETI notes food is kept cold longer when dry ice is packed closer to the food.
No Dead Space.
When packing a container, minimize air pockets to keep dry ice frozen longer. Water, ice or a towel can be used to fill in open spaces in a container.
For maximum chill, store your container in shade and cover it with a blanket or sleeping bag.
