SINGLE DRY ICE FOR SPECIAL EFFECTS
Whether you're hosting at home or at work, managing a stage production or require doncefloor clouds ot o wedding, dry ice offers multiple benefits for ony function, porty or event. Placing dry ice blocks in a heated pool or jacuzzi creates an impressive fog effect that will wow your guests. When combined with hot water, dry ice bubbles in water and creates beautiful, flowing fog. For example, with 2 kg of dry ice in 20 litres of hol waler, you'll see thick log being produced for about ten minutes. Once the water begins lo cool and the dry ice sublimates, the amount of fog produced reduces. Dry ice creates a fog effect because of its cold temperature (-78.5 °C). When immersed in hot water, it creates a cloud of true water vapor fog When the waler is colder than 15 °C, the log elfect stops but the dry ice continues to sublimate and bubble. In general, w II last longer on a damp day than on a hot. dry day.

HOW DO I CREATE DRY ICE SMOKE?
The hotter the water you use, the more smoke will be created - it's as simple as that! If you use boiling water, steam will also appear, in addition to the dry ice fog. We've added a handy table to help you get the right amount of dry ice for the size of your function. Remember: dry ice fog flows downhill or in the direction of any air movement, so outdoor effects could be unpredictable. Smaller pieces of dry ice - for example, 16 mm pellets - produce more fog in a shorter period of time, so consider the kind of dry iee you'd like to use depending on how long
WHAT ABOUT EQUIPMENT?
Good news - dry ice fog machines are available! Dry Ice International has machines available for hire. The machine is a 100 litre water barrel with a 220 V heating element to keep the water warm consistently - ensuring that you obtain the maximum effect from your dry ice. The dry ice is kept in a basket inside the machine and as soon as it's lowered into the water, the effects begin! The tog effect can then also be terminated at any time by lifting the basket out.
Alternatively, use a bucket of hot water, a boiler, or an urn with a built-in heating element. Ensure that the water is hot but not boiling for the best effect. Without a heating element, the water should be replaced as soon as it gets too cold to produce decent fog effects.
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.
WHAT ABOUT SAFETY
Not for human consumption.
Handle only with protective gloves or mitts.
Transport only in complete isolation from driver.
Do not place dry ice in any gas-tight container.
Keep away from children (adult supervision is required).
