About Dry Ice 

Dry Ice Africa has been a trustworthy and reliable dry ice manufacturer in South Africa for more than 20 years. Located on the East Rand in close proximity to the OR Tambo International Airport, Dry Ice Africa supplies various shapes and sizes of high density, food-grade dry ice. Dry Ice Africa supplies the following products and services: 

Our Products 

Dry ice Pellets Ø = 16 mm

Dry ice pellets have an average length of 50 mm and are suitable for the transportation of various fragile cargo items, e.g. vaccines, blood and medical samples.  It is ideal for smaller samples of products because of its size, as it can be manipulated to fit all kinds of consignments and may also be used as a cooling agent for recreational activities, e.g. camping and fishing.  Other applications are also possible by creating smoky special effects for parties, catering events and movie shoots. 

Dry ice Pellets Ø = 3 mm

These pellets are mainly used for dry ice blasting.  Dry ice blasting is an industrial cleaning method which is environmentally friendly and non-abrasive.  The pellets are accelerated in a pressured air stream directed at the surface which is to be cleaned.  Once it impacts the surface, it sublimates into a gas, leaving only the contaminant behind. 

Dry ice Blocks

Dry ice blocks are mainly used by campers, vendors or transport companies to preserve food supplies for an extended period of time, especially to keep products cold or frozen during an emergency.  This product is packed in a 10 kg box and has the best longevity in the range. Block dimensions: 140 mm x 140 mm x 90 mm, Block weight: 5 kg
