For a decent session you will need around 5kgs of dry ice.

You don't really need safety equipment for using dry ice, just common sense.

Acetone is used because it has a freezing point of around -100c so it won't freeze and it helps the thermal transfer between the dry ice and the tube. You can also use ehthanol/pure alcohol (>95% purity).

Also, due to the chemical nature of Acetone it absorbs moisture so you may need to tip it out and start fresh every now and then to keep the coldest temperature.


STORAGE: No way in hell will it last 4 days in a stored box. If you ordered 25kg you might have 5kgs left after 4 days but that's about it. Just buy what you are going to use that day.
You can also use a normal esky and if you store it in the freezer it lasts a little longer.
