CK Supply Inc., offers an independent, impartial source for complete turn key solutions and consulting for dry ice manufacturing and CO2 sourcing, design, and equipment installation. The full breadth of services includes but is not limited to:
Airline Catering: Airline caterers use large quantities of dry ice on a daily basis, and dry ice represents a large percentage of non-food consumable costs. Complex scheduling often leads to dry ice waste and inefficiency.
Cold Chain Management: Dry ice production for cold chain management is used for cooling during the transport of food, pharmaceuticals, and biological samples. The unique characteristics of dry ice make it a more efficient and cost-effective cooling media and allow for maximized efficiency in last mile delivery.
Food Processing Cooling: Dry ice is used in many types of food processing facilities–including bakeries–to control temperature, impede bacteria growth, and reduce spoilage. Dry ice is a food grade media and is FDA, USDA, and EPA approved for use around food.
Medical and Pharmaceutical Shipment Cooling: During shipping, it is critical that pharmaceuticals, vaccines, biological samples, and other medical goods be continuously stored in a limited temperature range from the time they are manufactured until the moment of application.
Production for Blasting: Facilities that use large amounts of dry ice in their dry ice cleaning process experience waste, high delivery costs, less supply flexibility, and lower quality dry ice.
Production for Resale: Dry ice is used in a variety of applications in a wide range of industries. From a cooling media in cold chain management to a blasting media in dry ice cleaning, dry ice has significant demand. Producing dry ice for resale offers your business another revenue generating opportunity.
