Dry ice sublimates at the rate of approximately 10 pounds every 24 hours when stored in a quality cooler. The following are some approximate cooling times based on using dry ice wrapped in an insulated container.
|Pounds of Dry Ice||Approximate Cooling Time|
|5 to 7 pounds||18 to 24 Hours|
|8 to 12 pounds||24 to 40 Hours|
|13 to 20 pounds||40 to 60 Hours|
