Arctic Fox Dry Ice Cleaning: Printing & paper

Printing presses and associated equipment in the print industry are notoriously expensive - so the need to care for them properly to maintain quality performance and shelf life is very important.

Print quality can be affected by residue ink, grease, lint from paper and other buildup of coatings – so there is a real need to effectively clean print production machinery to produce quality product. Traditional methods using solvents and chemicals can mean lengthy down time is required with many hours of labour to dismantle, clean, reassemble and dry before production can begin again.

Dry ice cleaning works for all presses with minimal or no dismantling required ensuring production can be back up and running fast.

Examples of equipment that has been successfully dry ice cleaned in the printing industry include:

  • Grippers / rollers
  • Drums
  • Ink trays
  • Gears and deck guides
  • Side walls
  • Feeder / delivery units
  • Letterpress
  • Flexography
  • Presses
