Screen Print Reclaiming Products
High Pressure Screen Reclaiming
In 1980 Hydro Engineering Inc. set the standard when we introduced 3000 PSI reclaiming to the Screen Print Industry. Screen Printers immediately started saving money on labor, chemicals and other related costs.
A side benefit emerged with high-pressure reclaiming--all of the contaminants (ink and emulsion) removed from the screen by high pressure come off in a solid form. As a solid these contaminants can easily be removed from the waste stream by mechanical filtration methods sending purified water to the sanitary sewer.
High pressure reclaiming also allows wastewater to be recycled. This is crucial for those printers that are not on a city sewer system (sanitary sewer). Chemicals and contaminants from the reclaiming process can kill a septic system allowing the drain field to plug up and ground water contamination to exist.
In 1994 a cooperative project between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Printing Association Nationwide completed a study that looked at RISK, PERFORMANCE & COST as it applied to screen reclaiming.
Hydro Engineering Inc's method was overwhelmingly successful in: REDUCING RISK & COST and ENHANCING PERFORMANCE.
