Interesting,, I got some stuff in the other day packed in dry ice. Put the dry ice block in the freezer figuring to use it again into days. Went to get it out and it was gone ???? Evaporated or something.

Dry ice is stable at -109F, much colder than your freezer can generate. It sublimated (went straight from solid to gas without melting into liquid form).

About ten years ago, I was recruited tobuild sets for a BIG production of Dicken's A Christmas Carol. The director wanted to be able to flood the stage with low lying fog in about 6 seconds, and clear it in about the same amount of time. I built two smoke machines that use dry ice. One 55gal. drum on it's side with another centered upright on top of it. The top one was cut to fit around the bottom one and welded in place like an upside down "T". I installed a large water heater element into the bottom barrel and made a hatch opening in the side of the top barrel. A plastic milk crate hung inside the top barrel filled with large blocks of dry ice. A cable passed out the top was used to lower the crate into the near boiling water. Also from the top was an 8" flex duct that fed to the floor vents in the stage. The reaction was VERY violent! With both smoke machines going, you could inundate the entire auditorium very quickly. You regulated the smoke by how far into the water you lowered the ice. They are still in use today.
