Printing

Printing processes that utilise plates to produce final prints can sometimes struggle with the consistency of quality when doing multiple runs, costing more effort and money to reprint and reputation when product is not up to scratch. It is also common for these operations to be stunted due to contaminants within the paint, and the water that is used to rinse down the plates between runs. Particle and salt build up can cause scaling within the machines, reducing service life and producing a lack of quality as a regular occurrence.

Preventing these issues can be easily achieved using the same quality of water to both wash down machinery and dilute the paint to a consistency ready to be used for printing.

Particle and chlorine / organics filtration is first used to ensure there is no build up of suspended solids. Then, the reverse osmosis stage is used to remove ~99% of the ions, salts and bacteria that can cause major machine damage. A further polishing stage of Deionising resin is utilised to remove the very last dissolved solids, leaving behind pure water of 0 ppm. Water of this purity ensures no contamination of the paint when diluted or the machines when rinsed.

Treatment Process

1

Particle Removal

Our cartridges offer outstanding absorption of sediment, dirt, sand and scale flakes to prevent filtration systems from blockage and microorganism growth.

2

Chlorine and Organics Removal

Carbon cartridges are a long established choice for the reduction and removal of chlorine, VOCs and heavy metals whilst reducing water hardness.

3

Reverse Osmosis

Pure water (permeate)  is produced during reverse osmosis by applying pressure to force water through a semi permeable membrane, leaving a majority of the present ions and dissolved solids on the other side to drain as waste (concentrate).

4

Post RO Deionisation

Our performance mixed bed resin is specially designed for deionisation directly after reverse osmosis. It holds a 1 : 1.5 ratio of strong acid cations and strong base anions to attract and remove all ions, salts and dissolved solids.
