Why Continental Carbonic?
The Advantages of Buying Dry Ice from Continental Carbonic
"True and Honest Weights"
Our competitors may charge you a standard container capacity weight or what your dry ice weighed when produced, regardless of how long it may have taken to get to you. At Continental Carbonic, we wait until the last possible opportunity to weigh your product -- for a true and honest weight. When combined with our state-of-the-art containers, true and honest weights save our customers as much as 20% compared with the competition.
Superior Containers Minimize Sublimation Losses
Dry ice converts (or sublimates) from a solid to a gas from the minute it's produced. Continental Carbonic minimizes sublimation losses by using top quality insulated dry ice containers. All food grade customers receive their dry ice in insulated, stainless steel-lined containers. Our true and honest weights and superior containers mean you get more for your money with Continental Carbonic.
Extensive Distribution Network
Our eight dry ice production facilities and 32 branch warehouse locations allow us to meet your dry ice requirements - on time, every time.

Competitive, Stable Pricing
We price our dry ice competitively upfront without unexpected add-on charges (e.g. hazmat fees) and offer flexibility in length and terms of dry ice supply agreements.
To ensure our customers receive the highest quality dry ice, we video record all dry ice production and frequently test liquid CO2 and dry ice purity.
Sanitation of Equipment
Continental Carbonic thoroughly washes dry ice containers every time they are returned to our plants.
We also apply SurfaSan, a bacterial sanitizer, to all stainless steel containers throughout the company. Before and after results from a third party analytic testing service show a significant reduction in cfu/swab in containers that have been treated with SurfaSan.
Continental Carbonic performs routine cleaning on all dry ice production equipment and dies. Pellet machine shrouds are used to prevent contamination during pellet dry ice production.
