Where to Purchase Dry Ice

Our state-of-the-art block machine manufactures blocks from 1 lb to 50lb. We also manufacture 3mm rice and 16mm pellets. OSC has flexible options for our customers, so you can either schedule a delivery or a pick-up. Whether you need a large quantity or a small order, we’re here to help you buy the dry ice you need.

Your Neighborhood Dry Ice Retailer

Dry ice is not only used for practical purposes. It’s also a common property to create special effects, like smoke for a haunted house on Halloween. Since we’re considered the Minneapolis local gas experts, we decided to advertise its special holiday use on social media so local individuals could add a little extra flair to their custom-made haunted houses during the spooky season. Our customer-focused mindset brought us to the realization that offering this specialty ice on Halloween meant a late evening of manufacturing, storing, and supplying it to locals. At OSC, you can expect service that goes the extra mile.

Other Retail Uses for Purchasing 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, a longer holding time, and requires no clean-up since it changes directly from a solid to a gas, or 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 custom-made 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 has safety precautions when storing it. Oxygen Service Company knows the safety regulations you must take to store your supply.
