Printech Archives, May 1998: Ink Meters

Ink Meters

I'm looking for some info on where to purchase press ink meters (&
approximately how much they cost) for use with offset litho heatset web
presses. Due to a recent, favorable change in our state air rules (& an
emissions test last month), we will soon be able to take advantage of
condenser/filter VOC control technology under our current air permit (we
have 3 units servicing 7 heatset web presses).

However, to get optimum benefit, we need to know how much ink each of the 3
units eventually treats. (This is because the tested VOC
Destruction/Removal Efficiency on the 3 units varied; we'd like to avoid
simply defaulting to the most conservative DRE.)

Would our current ink suppliers be the best place to start with this? Or??

Thanks for any suggestions/ideas/thoughts.

Curt C. Schmidt, CHMM
