Crushed Ice is one of the "fluids" added in Forestry mod. Crushed ice can be stored in tanks, and moved through Waterproof Pipes. It can be pumped into your combustion engines as it is 6 times a better coolant than water is. However you still will need huge amounts of coolant while Crushed Ice is much harder to produce than water is. Crushed ice also is a very good way of quadrupling the amount of MJ a force engine produces as it has a 4.0 throttle.

Crushed Ice is produced by combining one snowball and 4 Ice Shards in the input inventory of the Squeezer.

When producing Crushed Ice you have to limit the rate of the Squeezer. Buildcraft gates are useful here. Crushed ice is produced 4 buckets at once and the Squeezer will start working when there's less than 9 buckets in its buffer. This causes 3 buckets go to waste.
