Using Dry ice
Dry ice is advantageous for party orders
where the ice cream transportation required
is one way and no stock will be carried
Since party orders are packed in smaller
sizes (to suit a batch of 50 –100), dry
ice kept in smaller boxes help to maintain
the ice cream temperature to around (-)
15 °C in all the boxes.
During summer, power shortages / low voltages
affect the performance of cold storages.
Keeping dry ice in the cold storages help
to maintain the temperature and the stock.
Similarly, freezing of chill pads is also
possible in the cold storages. For moving
ice cream in shipper boxes, instead of chill
pads, dry ice could be used.
Usage of dry ice could be generalised to
all areas where the power situation is grim.
In shipper boxes, dry ice is supplemented
for chill pads when ice cream is transported
to longer distances.
In shipper boxes, dry ice will not occupy
space as it is kept at the bottom as well
as on the top (whereas chill pads kept on
both the sides of the boxes occupy space).
Chill pads reduces the net weight ice cream
carried as it weigh more as well as occupy
Usage of dry ice will reduce the expenses
to Rs. 200 per day instead of a huge capital
cost of Rs.1 lakh towards owning a FoW.
Balance (left over) dry ice could be saved
USE DRY ICE AS SUPPLEMENT IN SHIPPER
BOXES TRAVELLING LONGER DISTANCE
DRY ICE FOR DELIVERING PART ORDERS
/ EMERGENCY ORDERS,
DRY ICE FOR ALL PARTY ORDERS
DRY ICE FOR ALL UPCOUNTRY MARKETS
DRY ICE DURING POWER CUTS / SHORTAGES
PERIOD & FOR POWER STARVED AREAS
DRY ICE TO SAFEGUARD COLD ROOM &
STOCK DURING POWER CUTS
DRY ICE TO IMPROVE NET WEIGHT OF ICE
DRY ICE REQUIRES NO CAPITAL / EQUIPMENT
AND HENCE AFFORDABLE
LEFT OVER DRY ICE COULD BE RE-USED
(VALUE FOR YOUR MONEY)
Requirement of Dry
ice for the shipper box varies according
to the following factors:
Distance to be covered
Time taken to cover the distance
Climatic condition (winter / summer ; day
Material of construction of shipper box
– ie GI sheets / SINTEX etc.
The following information is
available on request from SICGIL :

For 50 Litre Capacity
2. REQUIREMENT OF
DRY ICE IN SINTEX INSULATED BOXES FOR 150
3. REQUIREMENT OF
DRY ICE IN SINTEX INSULATED BOXES FOR 200
4. SCIENTIFIC PACKING
METHOD OF ICE CREAM WITH DRY ICE
Heavy initial investment ie atleast Rs.1
lakh to start with.
Freezer weighs heavy (ie 600 – 700 kg) and
hence the vehicle is necessarily carrying
this extra weight other than the ice cream
weight (420 kg).
Chill pads are heavy and reduces the net
weight of ice cream transported in shipper
Electricity bills will mount up.
FoW mounted on one side of vehicle has negative
effect on spring plate. Hence extra leaf
has been attached on the wheel which bears
the freezer weight. Riding on the rural
roads results in suspension problem, fast
wear and tear of tyre and frequent replacement
Unnecessary when the operation area is small
and difficult to negotiate narrow lanes.
