The continued growth of the Milwaukee area prompted the Journal Sentinel to expand their printing and distribution capabilities in 2000.
The original design called for gas fired humidifiers to be installed on all of the air handlers serving the press hall, roll prep, reel room and mail room.
The GTS humidifiers proved to be expensive to operate and difficult to maintain in an operational condition. Maintaining proper humidity control is critical for press operation and post-printing handling.
Johnson Controls (JCI) is the site manager for building maintenance and operations and they called on MeeFog to assist them in designing an in-space humidification system that would provide the humidity control they desired in an energy efficient manner.
One of the biggest obstacles when applying water-based adhesives is the importance of ambient air conditions on dry/open airtime. Low humidity levels can have a negative impact on production throughout the process.
Mee Industries can improve production efficiency by reaching and maintaining the correct humidity levels throughout your facility.
Proper control of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) will also optimize conductivity for electrostatic paint and coating applications.
MeeFog systems use only the highest quality pump units and materials to ensure low maintenance and long life operations.
How Can Press & Screen Printers Benefit from Humidification?
Faster press speeds and shortened job turn-around in printing plants requires Plant Managers to become knowledgeable of atmospheric conditions. One important factor is relative humidity. A RH of 35% to 45% should be maintained throughout the entire printing process. Some variables such as press consistency, ink transfer, dimensional stability, and screen stencil quality may require better control of the paper’s moisture content to keep things running smooth.
MeeFog can help you eliminate the humidification variable while meeting your stringent indoor air quality requirements by introducing closely monitored humidity into your facility. Maintaining proper humidity levels in paper warehouses and press rooms ensures dimensional stability for proper registration and optimum ink transfer conditions for improved repeatability and higher production speeds.
Facility Mangers can rely on MeeFog to provide high quality pumps and highly efficient nozzles for optimum performance and longevity. Systems do not require compressed air or steam. MeeFog humidification systems are the most reliable and economical solution on the market today.
