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.
