Cleaning system for the removal of printing ink from flexible plastic films
ECO CLEAN is the system developed by Gamma Meccanica Spa o remove ink deposited by the printing machines on the plastic films for packaging, bringing the processed material back to a virgin film which makes recycling of these plastic materials more profitable.
ECO CLEAN – SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
The process is suitable for all types of flexible printed material rolls which are printed or contaminated on the top surface.
HOW DOES ECO CLEAN WORK
Eco Clean removes the deposited ink from the film, with the use of mechanical brushes and other ink removal equipment.
A specially formulated detergent is used to facilitate the removal of the ink.The contaminated detergent, used during the process, is continuosly transferred from the Eco Clean system to a regeneration plant, where it is renewed, replenished and then reused again in the Eco Clean process.
The result of the innovative process is a film completely cleaned from ink.
Advantages of the ECO CLEAN system:
- Cleans the film at a speed of 40 metres per minute
- It is fully automatic and requires little manpower
- Very low cost of detergent (optional system to regenerate the detergent)
- All Gamma Meccanica systems are Energy Efficient
