Liquid Carbon Dioxide

Carbon dioxide is nonflammable, colorless, and odorless in the gaseous and liquid states. High flow rates or rapid depressurization of a system can cause temperatures approaching the sublimation point (–109.3°F [–78.5°C]) to be attained within the system. Carbon dioxide will convert directly from a liquid to a solid if the liquid is depressurized below 76 psia (61 psig).
