N-Ice Clean is specialised in the cleaning of printing presses using CO2 dry ice. This way of working is very efficient and environmentally-friendly.
We unload the press carefully after its delivery. The press is carefully and according to the rules loaded on the truck for sending it back to the customer.
We check the press carefully on possible defaults, before starting the cleaning process. The next step is the disassembly of the casing and other components of the press. We access then the elements needing to be blasted with for CO2 dry ice. We frequently take pictures detecting any damage or defects of the machine. This information is sent to the owner of the machine.
Ready for the real work! Using CO2 dry ice, all corners and sides of the press are perfectly cleaned. All ink residues and other contaminants disappear and the parts look like new ones.
A very important feature is the manual cleaning after the CO2 dry ice cleaning. We become an excellent picture of the state of the press. If desired, the machine can be repainted and will look as brand-new one.
We clean the parts thermally in our pyrolysis oven. Both aluminium and iron parts are perfectly stripped of their coatings. Because the pyrolysis process takes 12 hours and due to a slow warming up, the parts do not deform as it might be the case with conventional ovens. The pyrolysis oven process is often used to remove a coating in the painting industry. Metal parts with silicone can also be pyrolyzed. The silicon is converted into dust.
We clean chemically several parts with our different ultrasonic baths. The combination of the right chemistry, the right temperature and ultrasonic vibrations ensure the parts looking as brand-new ones.
Dry ice is CO2 in solid form at a temperature of -78.5°C. Ideal for emergency and transport refrigeration, both for fresh and freezer products.
Dry ice leaves no residue after evaporation, so it doesn’t harm the refrigerated product or the packaging.
Dry ice has a high cooling capacity and is odourless and tasteless. Moreover, it is free of bacteria and germs.
CO2 pellets can be supplied in sizes of 3 and/or 10mm. They are supplied in containers of 350 or 250kg. Our dry ice containers are suitable for food. Smaller quantities can also be collected from our workshop.
The CO2 is produced in line with the HACCP and NEN-EN-ISO 9001:2008 requirements. The relevant document is available on request.
Ice N-Clean is a company specialized in the cleaning of printing presses. We blast the presses with CO2 dry ice. Through the work with CO2, N-Ice Clean assures environmentally friendly cleaning result. There is of course much more than just blasting. The press undergoes a complete metamorphosis. The dirty press is delivered and after the cleaning it looks brand-new. N-Ice Clean guarantees you an excellent service, as a consequence of many years of experience! N-Ice Clean was founded in 1996 by Donald Naessens and Ingrid Tuypens. Throughout the years they have built up N-Ice Clean to a solid and innovative company. Donald worked as a printing instructor. In this job he acquired a great knowledge and operation experience of different printing presses. End 2006, Donald passed the torch to the younger generation Maarten Claeys and Stefanie Naessens. They gratefully make use of Donald’s know how and continue this with their own renewing and fresh vision. Since the beginning of 2009, N-Ice Clean is able to carry out CO2 blasting using mobile blasting equipment. By this, we can offer more diverse services.
