In the beverage industry, “dry ice” is a term for carbon dioxide that has been used as a refrigerant. This form of CO₂ is used in some air conditioning machines, and it can also be used to replace bottle caps in beverage packaging. If you want to remove something from your refrigerator you might use a dry ice machine.
Dry Ice Companies- In the food industry, dry ice is commonly referred to as “carbon dioxide” but it is not related to the same substance that provides dry ice with its cooling power. It has many uses other than refrigeration and packaging, but it’s mostly associated with the beverages industry.
So, why do they call carbon dioxide “dry ice”? Well, CO₂ has the same physical properties as water and any other liquid material. It dissolves in water; it freezes at about −18°C (0°F); and it will evaporate when placed into an atmosphere at about 10°C (50°F).
Dry Ice Companies- Yes, these are all properties of CO₂: one of them would have to be changed to make it a liquid as you would have water with an affinity for certain types of molecules; one of them would change from a gas to a liquid, and one of them wouldn’t change at all. But we won’t go into that here because we already covered this in our first topic on this site:
2. Manufacturing and Uses
Dry ice companies manufacture and sell carbon dioxide (CO₂) cylinders, which are used in a wide range of industries including food processing, beverage cold storage, dairy processing and chemical plants. CO₂ is sold in a variety of forms, such as cylinders or cans. Although their main business involves the sale of cylinders and CO₂, these companies also manufacture other products such as CO₂ cartridges (which are part of the packaging system).
Dry ice companies market their products through advertising, brochures and catalogues. They often make commercials where they discuss their product in seemingly commercial settings. For example:
“We’re not just selling dry ice: we’re selling dry ice that makes your life better!” “You can have cooling comfort without freezing your wallet. We even have ‘dry ice freezers that let you enjoy frozen treats without the risk of freezing hands or fingers.”
Dry Ice Companies- Many Dry Ice Companies will also send out newsletters to keep customers up to date with what they have available for purchase — including a special promotion offering available only during certain times and seasons:
In addition to direct marketing, Dry Ice Companies often use social media campaigns to promote their product. They focus on Facebook and Twitter as well as Pinterest, Instagram and YouTube. The company might write about something that happens during the season (e.g., snowfall). In some cases, they will even have a dedicated Instagram account specifically for marketing dry ice products. What follows is an example from one such account:
In addition to ads on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest, Dry Ice Companies may also be involved with sponsored posts on other sites like Reddit. They might do something like this:
The goal here is to make it appear that their company has been involved in something big — perhaps with a crowdfunding campaign or an investment portal — but these links are often little more than clickbait.
3. History of Dry Ice
In 1823, Charles Goodyear invented a way to freeze carbon dioxide. It was a breakthrough because it enabled freezing in air, and it would be used to cool things like ice cream, soda and beer.
In 1829, he and his associates made their first attempt to use dry ice for freezing. The process went awry and the gas went back into the air after the experiment. In 1878, an Austrian chemist called J.J. Gall invented an improved version of Goodyear’s invention that used liquid nitrogen to freeze carbon dioxide in the air (which is what dry ice is).
In 1888, another Austrian chemist named Karl Von Voigts-Rheinheim developed an improved version of Gall’s invention (which is what dry ice is). In 1900, he started marketing it as “dry ice gas” after adding chloroform as a solvent to thin out the liquid nitrogen and make it easier to store in containers (which was how the product was sold before 1914).
From 1920-to 1936, Dr Franz Joseph Wiesner produced artificial dry ice by simply mixing carbon dioxide with acetone at room temperature in a sealed container over an open flame (which was how he sold it before 1914). Then from 1936 – 1945, Dr Gottlieb Daimler used this method for the production of artificial dry ice from CO₂ gas at temperatures up to 200°C (392°F) without chlorine or sulfuric acid (which is what dry ice is today).
The modern version of “dry ice” comes from chemistry professor Werner Von Braun who worked on artificial H₂O during WWII and first used it commercially as a refrigerant in 1958 (which was how it was sold before 1914).
4. Safety Concerns
Human error is a major problem for anyone who works with liquid carbon dioxide (LCD) because it is so volatile that it can explode if improperly handled. Liquid carbon dioxide can be used to kill insects and pests in the outdoors and to kill bacteria in the indoor environment. It has also been used to kill rodents, birds, and fish.
There are many companies out there who sell dry ice in bulk as an economical solution to their food, packaging, and laboratory needs. They all offer a variety of technical services, including refillable cartridges for dispensing liquid carbonic acid which can be bought online or at local retail outlets.
A few things are worth mentioning here:
• The items listed above are not any type of “product” per se; but rather the technology for distributing dry ice among different users for various purposes. They are not primarily sold as a “product” (although people often do buy them as such).
• Ever since I began my career I have noticed that people try to use the word “product” when describing this product space or this industry because they want to draw the reader’s attention away from the actual product itself and onto something else that is more useful or interesting. The intention is either good or bad depending on your perspective:
If you are trying to distance yourself from the product itself then it does have some utility (for example, if you want to talk about how Dry Ice Company X sells 1-2kg of dry ice per day). If you want to discuss why customers love their product, then it doesn’t work well because there isn’t anything unique about their product (after all someone else might offer a similar service).
If you are trying to highlight what makes this service special then it does have some utility (in other words: dry ice isn’t like any other kind of carbon dioxide).
However, for most people who use this technology, it is obvious that they aren’t talking about a particular company or brand; instead, they are talking about what makes this particular form of carbon dioxide special and different from others in its class (which includes everything from water vapour gas produced by lightning strikes and heat escaping from human skin).
So if you want your readership – especially new readers – interested in your story then starting up with something like this would likely get their attention very quickly. On the other hand, if you want them interested only in your
Dry ice companies are some of the most popular businesses in the world. All dry ice companies sell dry ice and in one form or another, they all have a product that is a carbon dioxide product. This is what makes them so popular: they are all carbon dioxide businesses, they all sell carbon dioxide, and they all have products that use carbon dioxide.
There are some important differences between these companies:
• Most of them focus on selling their product to consumers with some level of volume (typically about 5-10% of sales), with relatively few selling per year (typically less than 1% per month).
• They generally offer a lower-quality version of their product which still has uses in many industries (although some niche markets require higher quality).
• They advertise and review their product on social media, both to the general public and potential customers.
The purpose of our post is to explore ways in which existing dry ice manufacturers can produce better products, address customer needs better, advertise better and more effectively, etc. Many of these things are hard for small businesses or startups to address directly (or even at all), so this is a great opportunity for them!
