Prisco Exhibits Sustainable Pressroom Innovations

Prisco (Printers’ Service) is showcasing complete solutions for printers to reduce their environmental impact, along with innovative new options for the recycling of fountain solutions and solvents in Booth 201.

The company’s “Go Green with Prisco” initiative encompasses all of its sustainable technologies and its 100-years-plus of pressroom expertise.

“Prisco has been the leader in providing affordable products and systems that have minimized the impact on the environment since the introduction of the first commercially successful alcohol-free fountain concentrates almost 35 years ago,” notes Eric Gutwillig, VP of Marketing at Prisco. “Our innovations are always designed to provide the most cost-effective, productive, and practical answers for print production.”

Prisco’s FloClear systems for fountain solution recycling, with patented FloClear technology, winner of the PIA/GATF Intertech Award, is a leading process for recycling fountain solutions at quality printing plants worldwide. Fountain solution life is extended and its clarity maintained for months of press operation. The technology is suited for every pressroom application.Reduce waste, improve quality

PriscoTech WaterMizer permits recycling and reuse of plate processor wash water that previously went down the drain, literally.

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.

PriscoTech SolveKlene II Solvent Recycling Systems, also highlighted at the booth, has allowed users to drastically cut solvent consumption and reduce VOC emissions, waste hauling costs, and overall operating costs. All these benefits are achieved while reducing their overall negative impact on the environment.

To round out its offering for sustainable production, Prisco is showing its complete range of low- and no-VOC fountain concentrates, low-VOC solvents, ultra-low VOC aqueous coatings, energy-curable coatings and PREPAC products.

Integrating these consumables into the production process assures lowering of VOCs while increasing quality and productivity.
