ForensisGroup Dry Ice Expert Witnesses have years of experience in the field of forensic engineering, as registered professional engineers with expertise in construction engineering.
Dry ice forms carbon dioxide gas, which is not toxic; however, it changes the chemistry of the air so that there is a lower percentage of oxygen. While this is not an issue in a well-ventilated area, it can cause problems in enclosed spaces. Dry ice can be hazardous as it is extremely cold and quickly sublimates into carbon dioxide gas. Carbon dioxide can build pressure or displace normal air, potentially causing issues, such as asphyxiation.
In addition, if dry ice is placed in a sealed container, there is a risk of the container rupturing, which would produce a dry ice bomb. This would cause the container to explode.
Our experts consult on issues of design, construction administration, engineering, and project management. They have experience with mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection.
