Ya I don't see why but you would be spending a lot of money buying dry ice all the time.

dry ice is not liquid: you would have to use dry ice to cool the liquid, there would be lots of problems setting it up. somethine similar to a beer chiller maybe?

yeah dry ice only lasts a couple days. My company ships medication with it and the shelf life is 3 days. Plus wouldnt you run the risk of freezing the water. Dry ice is like -79c

Yes its possible. Its the same concept as a water chiller,no the water doesnt freeze as an antifreeze is used as the additive.

Its easier though just to make a straight chiller(AC system,submerge Evap in water,use evap water as reservoir)

Dry Ice + Water = a bomb
did you even think about venting the Co2 gas that would be created? Your RES would become a bomb in a couple of seconds.
Very bad idea. And you would have to spend like $100 bucks on dry ice a day to get that thing running. And another thing, the coolant would freeze, and antifreeze has to freeze at some point ( -200F I think).

Well,the coolant wouldnt freeze. The water is not going to get to -200f,ever.Thats -93c.And,the Dice wouldnt be in the water,it would simply be cooling the water,below it,cooling its container assumably(even though its still a useless idea in the world of chillers.)


Oh yeah,and dry ice is cheap,10 pounds,5 bucks.(not 200)

ok anit freeze still freezes... just not at the temps it is usually used at, dry ice will freeze antifreeze...

You could use Acetone, their is a chemical reaction in which the CO2 reacts, causing the acetone to get super cold, like -80 C. Acetone never freezes either. One problem with a pump is that the oil inside may start to solidify due to the extreme cold. You would also need to insulate all the tubing to keep it cold. I would just suggest buying or making your own pot to house the dry ice, pumping it through a loop isn't as efficient.
