Your Neighborhood Dry Ice Retailer

Dry ice isn’t just used for practical purposes. It’s also commonly used to create special effects, like smoke for a haunted house on Halloween. Since we’re considered the Minneapolis dry ice experts, we decided to advertise its special holiday use on social media so locals could add a little extra flair to their haunted houses during the spooky season. Our customer focus meant a late Halloween evening of manufacturing, storing, and supplying dry ices. With OSC, you can expect service that goes the extra mile.

Other Retail Uses for Dry Ice

Dry ice is the solid form of carbon dioxide (CO₂) with a temperature of –109.3° (–78.5° C) or below. It provides a lower temperature than ice water, has a longer holding time, and requires no cleanup since it changes directly from a solid to a gas (sublimation).

Some other uses for this specialty ice include:

  • Food and gift shipping
  • Power outages/emergency refrigeration
  • Special effects for science experiments
  • Hunting, fishing, camping, and travel

You can also use it to make homemade root beer, power a homemade rocket, preserve your produce, keep food and drinks extra cold, and keep bugs and insects away.

Properly and Safely Storing Dry Ice

This specialty ice includes safety precautions when storing it. Oxygen Service Company knows the steps you must take to safely store your supply.
