One solution was the FloClear systems for fountain solution recycling. The FloClear technology, winner of the PIA/GATF Intertech Award, is a process for recycling fountain solutions used at printing plants across the globe. Fountain solution life is extended and its clarity maintained for months of press operation. The FloClear HS was on display at the booth.
The PriscoTech WaterMizer, also on display, permits recycling and reuse of plate processor wash water that used to go down the drain. The system has the added benefits of allowing a plate processor to be installed without having to move drain lines and permits the use of “process water” to wash plates, thereby improving plate quality. And the PriscoTech SolvKlene II Solvent Recycling Systems allow users to cut solvent consumption, reduce VOC emissions, waste hauling costs and overall operating costs. All these benefits are achieved while reducing the overall negative impact on the environment.
To round out the Print 13 offering for sustainable production, Prisco displayed its complete range of low- and no-VOC fountain concentrates, low-VOC solvents, ultra-low VOC aqueous coatings, energy-curable coatings and PREPAC products.
