    i think it has something to do with how fast/slow you freeze it. all the water has to freeze at around the same time

    The vacuum is basically the same as boiling it, you're lowering the pressure to the point it boils at room temperature.
    You already knew that though, right?

    Using some Chemistry knowledge, you could try air sparging the water or use a sonicator. Preferably use Deionized or DI water. This will release all the CO2 and other impurities within the water. Then, you can freeze it.

    Notice how the edges are clear? It needs to be in a smaller container, like an ice cube tray. The faster it freezes the better. I think the treatments helped, it just was in too big of a container.

    Try boiling water (distilled) or vacuum chambering water and immediately put it in a bag to seal it from the atmosphere before you freeze it so the gases from the atmosphere don’t redissolve in the water before it freezes

    You know there’s plenty of vids on how ice sculptors get their clear ice? Keep the water moving and freeze from the bottom up. If someone could invent a home clear ice machine for all the hipsters and their queer drinking needs that person could make a fortune I bet.

    I paused at 7:00 mark. If memory serves me right, in order to get perfectly clear ice, you MUST have constant running water over the ice as it forms, and the water must be pure. This eliminates all bubbles and cracking.

    Love your videos, watch them all the time. - This one was interesting, I just read this about a lake in russia. - The entire lake freezes completley clear, its insaine, Im wondering why it does but we had such poor luck with your controlled experiments.
    Lake_Baikal is the lake in russia.

    Lots of clear ice cube makers have 2 sections, the top one contains clear ice and the bottom cloudy ice. Probably because of the reasons he listed in the video.

  • Zeno Gillis

    I've seen it done before. Freezing the water from inside -> outside should give you clear ice.
    Think it is because when it starts freezing the edges freeze up(clear) but once they're fully transformed into ice the "bubbles" as you call it can't escape from the middle portion of the containers.
    There are ice-trays shaped to get clear ice cubes by having a cone shape inside, look it up if you want to realle make some clear ice instead of trying some stuff out.
    Kinda disappointed with the video tbh..

    When you boil tap water, you increase the concentration level of fluoride. Fluoride doesn’t boil off!

  • numbblackpicture
    numbblackpicture Month ago

    No Idea if it works or where exactly I heard this, but somebody once told me that if the water moves while it's freezing it should get or rather stay clear. Not sure how to achieve this, maybe some kinda rattle plate. I've never seen such a process and always called bs on it since I never saw proof. Maybe it's worth a shot for a video, since nobody I now has a setup to shake water inside his/her freezer..

    the ice will be clear if you use the cooler with a small pump inside of it, this method is also used by ice making companies

    What if you freezed from the bottom up? Cut the foam bottom out, replace it with a metal bottom, then put a foam lid on. Make sure to not fill it up all the way so that there's an air gap at the top for the escaping gases to go

  • Ezy Cuberz
    Ezy Cuberz Month ago

    1) You should not leave those in normal air, as it might dissolve
    2) You should not use air tight caps, it might increase the temperature and air might dissolve in it (larger the pressure, more us the diffusion)
    3) You shouldn't try slow cooling, instead immediate cooling.
    Thanks if you read entirely

    Distilled water isn't actually as pure as you think it is it's actually relatively contaminated compaired to other forms of water like de-ionozed type II water witch is basically the only type of water that is molecularly pure it's so pure it can actually hurt you

    If you freeze the water from the water up in an industrial freezer, it'll be clear.... The reason the ice is cloudy is the way the freezer works, the cold air comes from all sides, so that traps any gas inside...

  • SgtSplatter782

    feh. okay here's the barman's trick to clear ice. first you have to have a mold of some sort, those round iceball molds are the best for this. next you need an insulated container that holds the mold. fill both mold and container with water. put the mold with it's fill hole down into the insulated container and you want to freeze the water slowly. The slower the better as it freezes downwards forcing both impurities and air bubbles down into the thermos. Pro-tip is to try not to have the ice be disturbed too much, don't go opening and closing that freezer constantly, the movement can cause the air bubble to 'stick' and you won't get clear ice.

    Vibrate the water while it freezes. As I understand it that is the way I've sculptors get clear ice.

  • Nicolas Chamenko
    Nicolas Chamenko 2 months ago

    I Would freeze it super slow at 34°F exactly at the freezing temperature making the freezing neutral allowing the water to be able to freeze All at the same time keeping the air on able to get trapped. If you freeze the ice to Fast it will cause the outside to freeze first that is my recommendation
