Dry Ice Calculator

The Dry Ice Calculator is a tool used to determine the quantity of dry ice needed for a specific application. Dry ice is solid carbon dioxide (CO2) that sublimates directly from a solid to a gas without passing through the liquid phase. It is commonly used for cooling, freezing, and transportation of perishable goods.


The formula for calculating the quantity of dry ice required is:

Dry Ice Quantity = (Product Weight / Cooling Factor) * Sublimation Rate


If you need to transport a product weighing 100 pounds, and the cooling factor is 1.5 pounds of dry ice per hour per pound of product, with a sublimation rate of 5 pounds per hour, the dry ice quantity would be calculated as follows: Dry Ice Quantity = (100 pounds / 1.5) * 5 = 333.33 pounds

This means that you would need approximately 333.33 pounds of dry ice for the specified application.
