What is a Cooling Crisis?

Your refrigeration equipment is unable to maintain a specific temperature due to external factors that are beyond your control.

What can cause a Cooling Crisis?

Power outages from Eskom or your local city council for longer than six hours; Catastrophic failures of refrigeration equipment; Cooling water failures due to breakdowns or water shortages; Peak season demand; Extreme summer temperatures; or Natural disasters.

Our solution to your Cooling Crisis

Dry ice can keep perishable products at temperatures below freezing point for extensive periods.

What is dry ice?

It is frozen carbon dioxide (CO2). The temperature of dry ice is -80 °C. It is a non-toxic, non-flammable, food-grade product. It sublimates from a solid to a gas - no liquid or water. The sublimation creates the cooling effect. The energy value is 570 kJ/kg.

How to use Dry Ice

Place on top of perishable products, as the cold gas is heavier than air and will therefore flow down through the product.
