Airgas, an Air Liquide company, said June 22 that it has recently completed installation of its new dry ice production equipment, replacing its nearly 60-year-old system.
The new equipment is state-of-the-art and will more than double production capacity to nearly 20,000 pounds per day. It also allows the company to produce more size options. Airgas will now offer four sizes: 11 pound block, 1/8 pellet, 5/8 pellet and a 2 pound individually packaged wafer. With the additional capacity, Airgas will begin to offer dry ice at four of its local branches - Anchorage, Fairbanks, Wasilla and Kenai. "Airgas is the only producer of dry ice in Alaska and this upgrade was long overdue given the increasing demand we've seen in the marketplace," said BJ Murdock vice president-Alaska, NorPac region.
