Completely Printing Industry and safe Environmentally friendly cleaning in South Africa Dry ice blasting replaces the use of dangerous solvents, scrapers, chisels and emery clothes without having to dismantle the press, thus eliminating many direct and indirect costs such as downtime hours, poor print quality, increase scrap, wear of machined parts, and disposal.
which make their use attractive, also make the removal of dried ink very difficult. Ink build-up on the gears and deck guides causes poor alignment and result in low print quality. Generally, each "press run" is used to determine the register of the colours and results in thousands of feet of wasted materials material. This inherently wasteful process can now be eliminated due to the on-line precision cleaning ability of Isogenix Dry Ice Blast Cleaning. Isogenix Dry Ice Blast Cleaning is ideal for the cleaning of Continuous Web and Sheet Fed Printing Presses. It can be used on machinery and support equipment and on dryers and drums. The following contaminants can be reduced or eliminated on inking areas: Gripper bars.

Typically, several hours are spent on each color station to scrape and wipe the critical surfaces. With today's modern presses having six to eight color decks, cleaning downtime can easily add up to several thousand Rand of lost production per cleaning cycle. Using the Isogenix Dry Ice Blast Cleaning process, the cylinders can be removed to provide easy access to all surfaces, allowing cleaning of both sides. In addition, dried out drip pans and fountains can easily be cleaned as well.

Printing with fluid inks at high speeds also creates an "ink mist" of fine droplets that comes from the splitting and transfer of the inks from the printing plate to the substrate being printed. These droplets settle on the areas "between colour dryer boxes" and eventually clog the vent slots or nozzles, resulting in a reduced and uneven airflow, which in turn inhibits proper drying. To compensate for this reduced airflow.
Not only does Isogenix Dry Ice Blast Cleaning speed up the cleaning process, but it also provides a far superior clean.
Traditional cleaning methods, used to address this problem, involve strong solvents and other media that must be collected, treated and disposed. Most solvents that are strong enough to remove the inks are hazardous or even flammable and their disposal is highly regulated and costly.
