MICO Dry Ice Cleaning Services

Dry-Ice cleaning is a revolutionary cleaning process using Cryogenic Technology. It is ideal when cleaning the internal areas of machinery as it can reach parts that are inaccessible by hand.

Mico Cleaning Services is the leading UK company in the cleaning of Print and Packaging machinery. With over 15 years experience in the industry we aim at achieving new standards and research on how printing and packaging machinery can be cleaned more professionally and cost-effectively.

The Dry-Ice process is a revolutionary cleaning method which was brought over from the USA. Mico was the first company to introduce this type of cleaning into the UK Print and Packaging Industry.

Mico Cleaning Services provides its services throughout the UK. Our services range from cleaning machinery parts, i.e. motors, gripper bars, guards to whole presses.

Dry-Ice Cleaning effectively removes tar, rust, inks, paints, varnish, coatings, weld slag, asphalt, resins, adhesives, dirt, soot, oil and grease.

The Advantages

The main advantages of using Dry Ice Cleaning Technology is that it reduces downtime by cleaning in-situ with or without disassembling. It cleans without causing any surface damage or etching to machine parts or tooling that is typically associated with abrasive blasting methods such as bead, sand or grit. Blasting media can often become trapped in machine parts slowing the return to full functionality. It eliminates the electrical issues and bacterial risks associated with water based cleaning.

Dry Ice Cleaning Technology can create savings by reducing the man-hours required to achieve the same result as traditional methods. Additionally there is no secondary waste sream to dispose of as the only byproducts of the process is the easily manageble surface material that has been dislodged and the carbon dioxide (itself a byproduct of other industrial processes). It eliminates personnel exposure to harzadous and corrosive chemicals associated with manual cleaning.
