Logotec Filtration Increases Productivity
A key objective for many printing companies in South Africa and around the world is to maximize efficiency while keeping input costs aligned. With the high increases in input costs experienced today there is a need for alternative solutions to keep costs and quality aligned.
There are many variables in the printing process, one significant variable that can easily be controlled is the water on your Litho press. Getting this variable under control will result in reduced consumable costs in alcohol and fountain solution as well as minimizing paper wastage by fast settling of ink resulting in less sheets used during make ready.
By fitting a Logotec Type M system to the drain outlet of your Technotrans system the press operator can filter the press water 24 hours a day while the press is in operation. No more delayed start-ups, first having to drain the technotrans and clean the system, the press water can be run for up to 4 times longer before dumping. Benefits of fitting a Logotec Type M water filtration system is time saving, less wastage of chemicals, saving on filters, less costs for chemical waste to be disposed of, faster achievement of colour on press and less paper wastage as well as water saving.
Tandym Print, a longstanding Logotec customer that can attribute to the above are those early adopters that have been running this system for years and have seen the benefits first hand and had the following to say:
“The water is definitely cleaner running a Logotec on our Heidelberg XL106 five colour press, our operators hardly ever need to change the technotrans water. This makes Monday morning maintenance and start-up much quicker with less downtime. The Technotrans filters last longer and this is an added cost saving. The main Logotec filter bottle can be changed without stopping the press; this is usually only once a year. Water conductivity is constant resulting in accurate colour control and this is critical in our business especially as we grow our packaging division.” States Clinton Simpson (Operations Manager)

Filtration system for dampening solution
on medium and large format sheet-fed presses
Filtration system for dampening solution TYPE M
The filtration system is installed directly with the central dampening
solution tank of the press. Granulate filter technology developed by
LOGOTEC is used to purify the dampening solution.
The solution is filtered continuously 24 hours in order to minimize the degree of contamination.
Adaptable to customers requirements.
Why filtration of dampening solution
for a more stable process
for less make ready time
for clean troughs and system
for reaching a longer life cycle of the dampening solution
for printing more constantly alcohol reduced
for printing more constantly alcohol free
Additional advantages of the system
No rollers running blind
Stable ink-/water balance
Less Downtime on press maintenance
Optimization of the printing quality through tried-and-tested LOGOTEC granulate ultrafine filtration
Process optimization with considerable extension of the period of use of the dampening solution
Minimum maintenance effort
Operating mode of the filtration
Broad and deep filtration
Pure particle filtration: paper particles, colour particles, powder particles, dust, all non-solvent particles
No chemical modification!
Notes regarding installation
The system is directly connected to the main dampening tank of the press
One filtration system per press or per main dampening solution tank is needed
The unit is an externa and independant of the printing process
Permanent filtration (24 h) of the dampening solution
Electrical supply: 1 / N / PE 220/240V 50/60 HZ
Unit dimensions: 620 x 350 x 920 mm (L x B x H)
Filter bottle change
Changing filters takes about 10 minutes
A required change of the filter bottle will be displayed by the unit
Return on Investment
With the LOGOTEC guaranteed 4 times longer lifetime of the dampening solution (A1 offset printing machine, 5 colours, 3 shift production) a return on investment of about 7 months can be reached.
