Detailed Equipment Information
M&R’s Eco-Tex™ automates and simplifies the entire screen-cleaning process, and it handles screen frames up to 132 x 97 cm (52” x 38”). In the process, Eco-Tex reduces environmental impact and lowers operating costs by recirculating screen-cleaning chemicals. Users have the option of leaving the emulsion intact while removing ink, or of completely stripping ink, emulsion, and other residue from screens. Once the screens have been cleaned, Eco-Tex rinses them with a high-pressure fresh-water power wash. Power-washing both sides of the screen simultaneously helps maintain screen mesh tension. The entire procedure takes place in a single automated cycle—and in a single chamber. An electric conveyor with stainless-steel rollers moves dirty screens into the chamber and clean screens out. Cleaning solvents drain back into the holding tank after each cleaning cycle, reducing chemical use and lowering the cost of operation.
