Dilution Management Systems

Manage Dilution, Control your Costs

Dilution Management Systems are proving ever more popular in the printing industry, where print quality, consistency and high levels of productivity are vital.

Why use Dilution Management Systems

Cleaning solutions are only fully effective when diluted to specific concentrations. If cleaning solutions are supplied in bulk containers and dosed manually by employees, the margin for error is high. Many people ignore correct proportions and just add more solution to ensure it is strong enough to work. Dilution Management Systems completely eliminate guesswork, ensuring that cleaning solutions are dosed correctly and efficiently.

Benefits of Automated Dilution

  • Cost savings – cleaning solutions are dispensed more economically and there is less wastage.
  • Space saving – centralised dispensing systems mean that barrels are not required press side and larger IBCs can be used.
  • Print quality – effective cleaning of printing presses at correct doses will help maintain consistent print quality.
  • Increased productivity – less time is wasted on manually mixing solutions, or changing barrels.
  • Consistent usage – ability to monitor/forecast usage and spend, also reduces the risk of running out.
  • Return on investment – the system will quickly pay for itself with savings made from accurate dilution.
  • Safety in the workplace – reduced risk of spillages with an automated system.
  • Environmental benefits – only correctly diluted solutions are entering the waste stream.
