Maximizing Efficiency in Your Inkroom
Dan McKenney, vice president North American sales for Novaflow, says, “We design the hardware with several things in mind, including weighscale accuracy and product viscosity. Typically, when designing a dispensing system for UV screen and conventional screen-printing inks, we select a highaccuracy scale (the smaller the batch size, the higher the precision of the scale). In regards to product viscosity, UV screen and conventional screen products, due to their make up, require a careful examination to ensure we size the fluid circuit properly.”

P.O.S. tinting, coloring & dispensing technologies: color accuracy, ease of use and efficiency remain key to users of P.O.S. colorant and dispensing systems
Novaflow Systems supplies gravimetric dispensers for automated clear and colorant dispensing. The batch size can vary from quart to gallon to 55 gallon to bulk 550 gallon systems.
"All of our customers are looking for quantifiable dispense accuracy, this is why they choose gravimetric over volumetric systems," said Scott. According to Scott, a gravimetric system is much more precise. It uses a calibrated weight scale to record the exact quantity of clear or color added to each batch. The volumetric systems, he said, record the number of pump rotations, and the pump gear may or may not have clear or colorant in the chamber, and "as such can incorrectly dispense the desired quantity of colorant, without recording the error."
