Every day, Sutton-Garten manufactures high density dry ice pellets in 3mm or 16mm sizes at our Indianapolis facility. By purchasing locally produced ice, you get the best dry ice possible. 

Dry ice is best when it is fresh - it lasts longer, cools better, and is a much better blasting media for dry ice blasting. Old ice becomes soft, clumps together, and picks up moisture.

Dry ice is available in small quantities at $1.00 per pound.  Bring in your own container and purchase what you need.

Lower pricing for larger quanitites available in standard insulated shipping containers containing 500 to 1400 pounds of ice. We deliver to Indiana locations, or ship by UPS or truck throughout the midwest. New, used and rental Cold Jet ice blasting equipment also avaialble.

Dry Ice Safety

What is Dry Ice?
Dry Ice is frozen carbon dioxide. Unlike most solids, it does not melt into a liquid, but instead changes directly into a gas. This process is called sublimation. The temperature of dry ice is around -109° F! It sublimates quickly so if you need dry ice for an experiment or project, buy it as close as possible to the time you need it.

Dry Ice Safety Rules:

1. KIDS: Never use dry ice without adult supervision. Dry ice can cause serious injury if not used carefully!!!
2. Never store dry ice in an airtight container. As the dry ice melts from a solid directly into a gas, the gas will build up in the container until it bursts. Sharp pieces of container will go flying all over the place. Make sure your container is ventilated!!! The best place to store dry ice is in a styrofoam chest with a loose fitting lid.
3. Do not touch dry ice with your skin! Use tongs, insulated (thick) gloves or an oven mitt. Since the temperature of dry ice is so cold, it can cause severe frostbite. If you suspect you have frostbite seek medical help immediately.
4. Never eat or swallow dry ice! Again, the temperature of dry ice is very, very cold. If you swallow dry ice, seek medical help immediately.
5. Never lay down in, or place small children or pets in homemade clouds. The clouds are made of carbon dioxide gas! People and pets could suffocate if they breathe in too much gas.
6. Never place dry ice in an unventilated room or car. If you are traveling with dry ice in the car, crack a window open. Same rule applies if you are in a small room, crack a window open. You do not want too much carbon dioxide gas to build up around you.
7. Always wear safety goggles when doing experiments with dry ice.
8. Do not place dry ice directly on countertops. The cold temperature could cause the surface to crack.
9. Leave the area immediately if you start to pant or have difficulty catching your breath. This is a sign that you have breathed in too much carbon dioxide gas.
10. Do not store dry ice in your freezer. It will cause your freezer to become too cold and your freezer may shut off. However, if you lose power for an extended period of time, dry ice is the best way to keep things cold!

Disposing of Dry Ice:
To dispose of dry ice, place in a well ventilated container and take it outside where small children and pets cannot reach it. Simply let it sublimate away!
