Chemical Industry

Ice is used to slow-cool or completely stop certain chemical reactions. Some of those chemicals that need a “cooling bath” of either dry ice or water ice would include certain salts, dioxane, benzyl alcohol or acetone. Often flake ice is used in labs.

To produce dyes, a number of chemicals are mixed with water in a reactor to form a new molecule. During the exothermic reaction, the temperature inside the reactor is controlled by adding flake-ice.
