Other Accessories include Safety Relief Valve, Pressure Gauge and Level Indicator, Liquid Co2 Transfer Pump - \91SMITH\92 make, 7.5 HP Squirrel cage 3 ø induction motor and Refrigeration Coil - in vapour space to maintain the liquid Co2 temperature
Bitting insects are primarily attracted to animals because of the CO2 content in respiration. Mosquitoes now are a hazard as well as a nuisance and we provide a very effective trapping service using CO2 as an attractant to mosquitoes. Please go to http://mosquitocontrol.co.in/ for more information.
We offer our clients a telemetry based Storage Tank monitoring system, which monitors tank level and facilitates auto reordering ensuring comfortable stocking by clients. Equally important, it also assists our client’s Safety Manager by monitoring statutory requirements as well as tank safety parameters, by sending automatic reminders by sms and email based on user defined parameters.

Appearance and odor
: carbon dioxide is colorless and odorless as gas or liquid.
It is stored in containers under its own vapor pressure.
If the pressure is suddenly relieved, the liquid rapidly
Cools as it evaporates and sublimes, forming dry ice

Health hazard data
Threshold limit value
Tlv = 5000 ppm [tlv-stel (short term exposure limit) = 15000 ppm (1.5% by vol.)]
Symptoms if ingested, contacted with skin, or vapor inhaled
Carbon dioxide does not support life and may produce immediately hazardous atmospheres. At a concentration in excess of 1.5%, carbon dioxide may produce hyperventilation, headaches, visual disturbances,. Tremor, loss of consciousness and, death. Symptoms of exposure in the concentration ranges of 1.5-5% may be highly variable, but typical symptoms of carbon dioxide intoxication include the following:
Co2 concentration : symptoms
3-6% : headaches, dyspnea, perspiration
6-10% : headache, dyspnea, perspiration, tremors, visual disturbance, unconsciousness
Over 10% : unconsciousness
If the concentration of carbon dioxide exceeds 10%, unconsciousness can occur without warning, preventing self-rescue. At much higher concentrations, carbon dioxide displaces the oxygen in air below levels necessary to support life.
Carbon dioxide is a minor but important constituent of the atmosphere, averaging about 0.03% or 300 ppm by volume. At higher concentrations it affects the respiratory rate. Additional symptoms are described above.
Recommended first aid treatment
Persons suffering from the toxic effect of carbon dioxide should be moved to areas with normal atmosphere. Self contained breathing apparatus may be necessary to prevent toxic exposure or asphyxiation of rescue workers. Assisted respiration and supplemental oxygen should be given if the victim is not breathing. Frozen tissues should be flooded or soaked with tepid water (105-115f; 41-46c). Do not use hot water. Cryogenic burns, which result in blistering or deeper tissue freezing, should be seen promptly by a physician.
Stability : unstable (conditions to avoid)
Incompatibility (materials to avoid : if moisture is present, materials must resist carbonic acid
Hazardous polymerization : may occur (conditions to avoid)
Coldry is sicgil's trademark for solid carbon dioxide, commonly known as dry ice. Compared to normal ice, dry ice changes directly from a solid to a gas when it absorbs heat. Dry ice with the temperature of minus 78.4 º c, absorbs 573 kj of heat per kg compared to 335 kj per kg for water ice.
Solid blocks weighing about 4 \96 6 kg with the approximate dimensions 7\94 x 7\94 x 7\94
Bigger sizes of dry ice blocks weighing more than 10 kg is also being made.
In-transit refrigeration of foods, ice cream, pharmaceuticals and other temperature-sensitive materials (like vaccines)
Process cooling during chopping/blending/mixing/mincing/grinding operations of meat.
Dry ice blasting cleaning system for moulds, machinery, buildings etc.etc.
Shrink fitting metal components for an interference fit e.g. Axles into gear wheels
Production of fog effects for theatres, discos etc.
Quick and convenient source of inert gas for purging fuel tanks etc.
Intensely very cold and hence contact with bare skin should be avoided
Carbon dioxide gas is heavier than air and is an ashyxiant - care should be taken to avoid accumulation at low levels or in confined spaces
Coldry must not be placed in tightly sealed containers. Sufficient care (ie) vents must be provided to allow the gas evolved to escape.
