NEW VS. OLD: Screen Cleaning and Diptanks

Screen cleaning has evolved alot over the years..and with the invention of diptanks it has never been easier to clean screens. The old process is still well used today in printshops.. Cleaning using harsh chemicals in a 5-6 step process, However diptanks allow print shops to cut their costs and labour by up to 50% so it’s not hard to see why they are so popular. Not only cut costs/labour, But to also streamline the process making it less time consuming when it comes to cleaning at the end of the day. 

One of the main advantages of diptanks is the amount of chemical used. Once you have filled your tank, That same chemical will continue to work for several months without the need of it being changed. No more buying chemicals each month. The diptank does all the work for you when it comes to stripping emulsion and degreasing a screen as our Easiway Supra does both in one go. Just simply dip and wash out in a washout booth. You can also dip multiple screens at one time. Our smaller diptank that comes in the starter kit can fit up to 3 screens efficiently, allowing the perfect time frame for rotation whilst your other screens are in the tank. 

The below video from Easiway shows the simple process of cleaning screens using a diptank.
