Ordering Dry Ice

The information below applies to departments located in Davis. 

If you require dry ice at a non-Davis location, contact UC Davis Distribution Services at 530-752-0663.

Before Ordering

You should always check to see if your department has a standing order for dry ice, prior to placing an order. Check with your department business office or stockroom for the standing Dry Ice Order Form or department ice chest. The standing order form should be completed as directed by your department.

Placing the Order

If your department does not have a standing order for dry ice or needs to establish a one time large order or a new continuing order, an order should be placed in the Central Storehouse catalog in AggieBuy. 

To access the Central Storehouse catalog:

  1. Click on the Central Storehouse link from the Campus Services menu on the AggieBuy Home Page. 
  2. On the next screen, click on the Hosted Catalog Search button.
  3. Make sure the Catalog Number radial button is selected. 
  4. Enter one of the following catalog numbers and click Go. 

AggieBuy catalog numbers


13512-113 (50 LB Package; pellets) *

13512-112 (blocks) *

* The minimum order of dry ice for delivery, pellets and/or blocks, is 150 pounds

  1. Contact Distribution Services at 530-752 -0663, after the order has been entered in UCD Buy, and provide them with the order number.
  2. Storehouse staff will insert the UCD Buy information into a Dry Ice Order Form and then e-mail or fax a copy to the department for dry ice requests.
  3. No dry ice shipments will actually occur until the department completes the form for the supplier (Airgas) who makes the deliveries.

Receiving the Order

Your department will need to set out the order form for Airgas to receive dry ice. If your department is on a regular stop for dry ice deliveries you can simply leave a form out for Monday or Thursday delivery. If your department is not on a regular stop you can contact Airgas at (916) 428-4700 to schedule the delivery. 

If you have questions regarding dry ice ordering, please contact Distribution Services at 530-752-0663.
