Walk In Pricing
We welcome walk in customers and have the following published pricing for our dry ice and gas products.
Making your Dry Ice Last
Dry ice sublimates (changes from a solid to a gas) at the rate of 10 pounds every 24 hours in a standard insulated container. Use the following tips to help make the most of your dry ice.
- Bring a Styrofoam insulated container when you pick up your Dry Ice.
- Fill the empty space in your cooler with crumpled newspaper. Filling in the “dead air space” around your Dry Ice will slow down sublimation.
- Avoid frequently opening and closing your insulated container.
- Do not store Dry Ice in air-tight containers. The pressure can cause the container to burst, causing personal harm and injury.
- Do not store Dry Ice in a refrigerator. The Dry Ice will turn off your refrigerator thermostat and freeze all of its contents.
Dry Ice Warning

- Do not put in closed container.
