Dry ice in the chemical industry

The use of carbonated ice is not limited to cleaning and cooling; the range of applications is very wide.

One of the most valuable properties of dry ice is its cooling capacity. Chemical companies use carbon dioxide to solve many problems. Gas inertia, resulting from the sublimation of dry ice, is used to remove oxygen. This property is in great demand in the dismantling of underground tanks intended for the storage of flammable gases and liquids. Dry ice is also used to create excessive pressure inside containers.

The applications of dry ice go beyond simple cleaning and cooling, having an extremely wide field of use. The introduction of new technologies in production contributes to its spread.

Applications of dry ice:

  • Slowing down chemical reactions;
  • Base neutralization;
  • Transportation of adhesive compositions.
