How does Dry ice work? | How is Dry is made? | What is the Temperature of Dry ice?

When Carbon dioxide is Pressurised and Cooled, it forms a liquid. This liquid Carbon dioxide is poured into moulds to that can either pelletize or form blocks, and these moulds are exposed to atmospheric pressure, The process of depressurizing the liquid forms Dry Ice (Frozen Carbon Dioxide). The Temperature of Dry Ice, i.e.,... Frozen Carbon Dioxide is at -78.5 C.

30 Minute Ice Pack Therapy Can Help you Loose Weight Faster !


Weight loss ice pack

That’s right. It appears that using flexible dry ice packs for at least 30 minutes could be the answer to dealing with body fat.Ice packs are widely used to reduce inflammation and prevent swelling from injuries commonly related to sports and exercise. It appears that putting an ice pack on your stomach for 30 minutes can burn off the hard-to-address calories.

HACCP - Temperature Monitoring is Key to Food Safety

HACCP Guidelines To Properly Store, Cook, Prepare, Showcase and Move Food


The Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) is a management system that deals with and creates food safety guidelines that must be followed wherever food is displayed, stored, prepared, cooked and/or moved. It recognises that the most important factors for food safety and quality are pH and temperature.


Tips to Deliver Chilled & Frozen Products to the Customer

Frozen food for delivery

Once you have a generously large Esky & sufficient volume of dry ice packs or gel packs that are well frozen, it's best to pack the cooler just before the time for despatch. However, If you do have a cold storage room, then the shipper can be packed much ahead of time and stored in cold Room away from the door. It's best to pack your cooler tight inside with sufficient volume of ice packs for best performance. If your payload is temperature sensitive or if it can be affected by a freezer burn

Everything you need to know about Dry ice packs

How is a dry ice pack used and how is it Hydrated / Activated?


The dry ice packs are delivered to you in the dehydrated form. They only need to be soaked in water so the cells can be activated and become an ice pack. It only needs to be soaked in water for the first time. Once the ice sheet is fully hydrated, it can be used over and over again like any other ice pack. Hence reused by repeat freezing or heating.

How to Store and Transport Insulin


We have heard a lot of people complain bitterly when told to store insulin in the refrigerator, as its potency might get disturbed if placed outside for long periods of time. Many will say they cannot carry insulin since they aren’t able to refrigerate it. Well, that’s when the insulin when packed with a set of well frozen Reusable Dry ice packs inside an insulated an Ice chest or a Cooler bag will keep it just as cold as a refrigerator hence allowing you travel anywhere and everywhere without any restriction.

How to Store and Transport Blood

Blood Transport

The blood from the donor (body temperature at +37 Deg C) is collected into pre-cooled, internally sterilised hermetically sealable plastic bag containing anticoagulants to prevent clotting and nutrients. The transportation of whole blood could withstand a temperature of +20 to +24 Deg C for a maximum of 6 hrs. At mobile collection centres, blood is placed is directly placed into a well insulated Cold chain shipper with sufficient Cryophase Phase Change Materials that is capable of cooling blood below +10 Dec C in under 6 hrs and thereafter maintain the temperature below +10 Deg C

Cold Chain Packing Tips | How to pack frozen things for transport

Cold Chain Management

The Refrigerant bricks or gel bricks require being frozen to the right start temperature depending on the temperature sensitivity of the payload and the cold chain requirement. Hence in instances where the cryophase bricks are required to have a colder temperature than the freezer, It's best they are conditioned with a freezing agent like Dry ice to bring the core temperature right down. However in instances where the Cryophase Gel bricks are required to start at a slightly warmer temperature. For example - if the Cold chain solution requires the Brick to start at -12 Degree C and it has just come out of a -18 Freezer, It's recommended that the cryophase Phase change gel bricks be removed from the fridge and conditioned in Ambient temperature on a table and the temperature monitored with a laser Temperature gun regularly until the Gel brick reaches -12 Degrees before being packed into the Cold chain Shipper . Conditioning these Gel packs are very important in situations where the payload is temperature sensitive.

Phase Change Materials | PCM Gel Bricks| Cryophase

Pcm Gel Bricks

An ideal phase change material would be specifically calibrated to suit the specific temperature requirement which means the phase change brick would have the longest lifespan at the desired temperature. The time duration of the temperature it maintains is also subject to external factors such as ambient temperature, insulation properties, humidity, thermal mass of the refrigerant and payload. The best PCM bricks would have a sharp melting point without hysteresis. A good PCM Gel brick should have high latent heat per unit mass per unit volume. They will also have high thermal conductivity in both solid and liquid phases thereby assisting fast charging and discharging of heat energy storage. They also have high thermal stability i e.. retention of thermal properties mainly melting point and latent heat over large temperature cycles. They should have high nucleation rate with little or no supercooling (subcooling) during the freezing process, completely reversible freeze/ melt cycle, congruent melting to avoid segregation, Low density and volume variation to avoid problems with a storage tank. They should have long term chemical stability. An ideal PCM has small volume change on phase transformation. Ideally, the phase change bricks should be nontoxic, non-corrosive, non-poisonous, non-flammable and non-explosive. Good phase change materials must be abundantly available and preferably at low cost. They should also be compatible with the container material. The biodegradability is an important aspect. At the end of the lifecycle, the PCM should be safe enough to be landfilled and degrade naturally in about six months.
