The area of your screen printing company that has the highest turn-over is where? Let’s guess. Screen cleaning? That wasn’t too hard, its the same all over the world. What’s to like, wet ink, loud high pressure washers, on floors that are wet and slippery, or ruining clothes? Turn-over in your reclaim area can be reduced by tidying up the area while also saving you money. If more owners and managers worked in this area, they would quickly see the advantages of using a dip tank for reclaiming screens.
Easiway is the original developer of screen dip tanks and it was in direct response to cleaning the area where screens are cleaned. In developing the tanks it was quickly learned the money was being saved. Truly a win-win for screen printers.
When screens are placed in dip tanks, reclaim chemicals can really do their job quickly since they are in constant contact with both sides of the emulsion. Spraying chemicals outside a tank is where the mess begins, and this step is replaced with adding a precise amount reclaiming chemicals, like EasiStrip Supra or EasiSolv 1028. If you are in California, and require SCAQMD compliant chemistry use EasiSolv C29. Control and measurement will lead to less reclaiming chemicals being used. Operators will not have to do any guessing from screen to screen. Recharging dip tank chemistry can be done weekly and controlled. Money saved.
When screens come out of the dip tank they are ready to be washed out. Screens require much less time, and amount of water to finish removal of emulsion. This will lead to less over spray and much less water usage. More money saved.
The bonus for the dip tank process is when these screens are dry and ready for emulsion re-coating they will not need degreasing. Easiway will be doing continuous demonstrations of the dip tank method at the SGIA show in Las Vegas (October 18-20) in booth 3641. Please stop by and see the ease, speed, cleanliness and money-saving that dip tanks will do for your company.
