Solid CO2 Delivery

SOLID CO2 DELIVERY

Reliable supply of solid carbon dioxide (dry ice)

Liquid CO2 expands rapidly in contact with the atmosphere and generates “dry snow”. Compacted, this “dry snow” is turned into “dry ice”. Dry has a temperature of -78.5 ° C and sublimes, leaving no residue.

Praxair has two dry ice production facilities in the UK able to deliver door to door on a next day basis throughout the UK. 

The Immingham dry ice plant located in North East Lincolnshire was built in 1994 and has been providing a reliable supply of dry ice to the UK market ever since. Door to door next day dry ice delivery is available to customers throughout the East Midlands and Yorkshire including: Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Rutland, South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, North Yorkshire and East Yorkshire.

The Hounslow plant located in Heathrow was built in 2007 and is ideally suited to produce and supply dry ice to Airline caterers and event caterers in and around London and its airports and major venues.

Orders placed before 12 noon (Mon - Fri) can be delivered the next working day.

Bulk dry ice orders are supplied using modular storage containers exclusive to Praxair. The system has been designed following recognition of customer requirements and demands. The containers are constructed of durable but lightweight polyethylene, making them completely safe for use in the food sector and entirely recyclable. They can be stored anywhere but sublimation rates are reduced the lower the ambient temperature is. Small dry ice orders can also be packed and delivered to customers using insulated polystyrene boxes.

Dry ice is produced in a variety of formats and packaging adapted to customer needs. Praxair is the only provider of dry ice slices on the UK market.
