RAWABI SAUDI DRY ICE

Rawabi Saudi Dry Ice (RSDI), a fully owned subsidiary of Rawabi Holding, is a major Dry Ice provider to a wide range of industrial sectors in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. RSDI also provides Dry Ice solutions that are environmentally safe and effective cleaning alternative such as blasting services.

What is Dry Ice?

Dry Ice is the common name for solid carbon dioxide (CO2). It gets this name because it does not melt into a liquid when heated. Instead, it changes directly into a gas which is known as the (sublimation) process. The non-toxic, non-flammable, zero residue characteristics of Dry Ice in addition to the three-times refrigeration power of water ice (-70°C ± 10°C), makes it the best refrigeration alternative for food and medical supplies as well as an effective industrial cleaning mechanism.

Advantages of Dry Ice

  • Non-toxic
  • Non-abrasive
  • No cleaning residue
  • No secondary waste
  • No substrate damage
  • No chemical reaction with surface
  • Non-electrically conductive
  • Tasteless and odorless
  • Non-toxic
  • Non-abrasive
  • No cleaning residue

RSDI provides its Dry Ice-based services in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain which serves the following sectors:

Dry Ice in the Healthcare Sector

Storage and Shipping

  • Dry Ice is used by hospitals, clinics and laboratories for the storage and shipment of temperature-sensitive items such as biomedical samples, organs, blood, medicine and vaccines.
  • The Dry Ice extremely cold temperature and the zero remnants makes it the best option for storing and transporting sensitive medical materials that must remain cold for an extended period.

Cleaning and Disinfection

  • Dry Ice can also be used to clean and disinfect medical and industrial equipment as it is not pollutant and does not have a detrimental effect on the equipment itself during live running operations.
  • Spraying Dry Ice on the surface instantly decontaminate the treated area. This method is economical,  environmentally safe, reduces waste and the usage of aggressive chemicals.

Dry Ice in the Food and Beverage Industry

Dry Ice is used as a non-cyclic refrigeration technique to preserve ingredients and food as a replacement of the mechanical cooling methods. It is frequently used for the below purposes:

  • Food processing and distribution
  • Food preservation process
  • Food presentation – fog effect
  • Serving special and fine dining dishes
  • Making of ice cream and cold desserts

Dry Ice in the Industrial Sector

Dry Ice blasting -also called cryogenic or CO2 blasting- has remarkably proven a significant benefit associated with its cleaning capability and its applicability to a broad range of industries. Dry Ice blasting is used to clean machinery, electrical installations, electro-mechanical equipment and surfaces during live running operations. Dry Ice blasting has resulted in considerable increases in productivity, service quality, as well as substantial bottom-line savings.
