Dry ice provides a number of beneficial properties that are of great use to medical devices, medical practices and medical purposes. At Cold Jet Australia, we frequently supply high-quality dry ice solutions for those operating in the medical field.
Due to the cold temperatures of dry ice and the fact that dry ice does not leave behind any residue, the solution is ideal for medical device equipment cleaning and medical sample refrigeration. A key component of the cold chain process, dry ice is also said to be a critical factor in the transportation of the COVID-19 vaccine. Learn more about medical dry ice & how Cold Jet support the medical field with dry ice technology below.
Medical Dry Ice Refrigeration
One of the most interesting uses for medical dry ice is refrigerant. Dry ice can potentially be used to transport organs, biological samples, pharmaceuticals and vaccines, ensuring that each material is kept at particular temperatures. Dry ice has been determined as safe for the refrigeration and cooling of pharmaceutical and medical sample storage. Due to the low temperature and control of dry ice blasting equipment, dry ice can also be used by medical professionals to freeze and remove warts or other skin imperfections. Cold Jet Australia can provide refrigerant cooling with our leading high-density dry ice storage.
However, the most common use for dry ice for medical purposes is to safely, effectively and efficiently clean medical device manufacturing equipment. Medical devices need to be designed and manufactured with precision. Dry ice blasting practices work to efficiently and effectively clean medical device manufacturing equipment, to ensure seamless operation.

Medical Dry Ice
Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Dry Ice?
Dry ice is the solid form of carbon dioxide. Commonly used as a cooling agent, dry ice has a lower temperature than water ice and does not leave any residue when it disappears. Dry ice is colourless, non-flammable, and can have a zesty odour and can lower the pH of a solution when dissolved in water.
Dry ice typically comes in blocks or pellets to be utilised as you desire. For medical dry ice refrigerants, you may consider blocks of dry ice. If you require dry ice for dry ice blasting equipment, you should be looking at 3mm dry ice pellets.
How Cold Is Dry Ice?
Dry ice is solid carbon dioxide. The surface temperature of dry ice is -78.5°C (-109.3°F). A frozen block of dry ice transforms directly into a gas at this temperature, skipping the liquid phase entirely.
Due to the extremely cold temperatures of dry ice, severe cold burns can occur with prolonged direct contact with skin (hence why it can often be used by medical professionals to safely remove and freeze warts). Dry ice must be handled with special equipment to ensure that skin to skin contact does not occur.
Who Requires Dry Ice Production?
Dry ice production is typically utilised by those who require refrigeration and cooling items to prevent spoiling or damage. The most common example of this is the preservation of food, beverages and other samples, using non-cyclic refrigeration. These are the main applications that we deliver dry ice production services for:
- Medical Industry
- Airline Catering
- Cold Chain Management
- Food Processing Cooling
- Medical and Pharmaceutical Shipment Cooling
