How Do You Make Dry Ice?

Answer

In order to create dry ice, the manufacturer causes pressurisation to occur on the carbon dioxide gas and refrigerates it so that liquid carbon dioxide is formed. The liquid is left to expand in an atmospheric chamber. As the carbon dioxide gas transforms to a liquid, the temperature falls. This drop in temperature causes part of the gas to freeze. As a result, carbon dioxide that has the appearance of snow and vapour is created. The carbon dioxide that has the appearance of snow is pressed hydraulically into blocks and pellets of dry ice.
