NEWARK, NJ—August 15, 2007—Prisco (Printers’ Service) is proud to introduce our expanded line of Prisco PREPAC® wet cleaning rolls for use with the Baldwin IMPACT® blanket and impression cylinder cleaning systems.
PREPAC Technology now offers enhanced performance as well as the service and support provided by Prisco. Baldwin’s latest technology developments offer an easy and effective way to significantly lower total VOC emissions in your plant and is a critical component of the GO GREEN WITH PRISCO initiative.
Prisco PREPAC provides the most complete range of cleaning media and low VOC solvent combinations designed for a wide range of printing applications and optimal cleaning performance
The Prisco PREPAC line of products provides:
The lowest VOC content of any wet roll cleaning media on the market.
Vacuum-sealed packaging assuring consistent cleaning from roll to roll.
Solvents that have been optimized to prevent damage to cleaning systems.
More cleaning cycles per roll and lower cost per wash than competitive products.
If you have a dry cloth system on a Komori press, Prisco makes it easy to convert to Baldwin’s PREPAC technology with our low cost conversion programs. And, if you have a press without an automatic blanket or impression cylinder cleaning system, we can retrofit your press with a Baldwin IMPACT system.
Only Prisco offers the full array of one-stop service, support, product range and programs for optimized automatic press cleaning. We are Baldwin Technologies exclusive partner in North America.
Minimizing Chemical Waste Is a Key Environmental Strategy
Prisco is proud to introduce the second generation of the world’s most effective fountain solution filtration and recycling system, the new FloClear® G2. Fountain solution treatment is a critical component of the GO GREEN WITH PRISCO initiative.
FloClear circulates contaminated fountain solution through its multi-stage processing system returning it in fresh condition to a central chilling unit. The system eliminates fountain solution contamination from paper, ink and solvents. This results in greatly reduced chemical waste, less total fountain solution used with improved press control and printing quality. Chiller maintenance is greatly reduced, resulting in high press productivity.
New innovations to the original FloClear include:
System Monitoring - The controller monitors run-time, filter back-pressure and pump pressure
Pump Protection - The G2 Controller constantly watches for low pressure and will shut down if there is a fault.
Splitter Control – A FloClear G2 system may be retrofitted to serve two central chiller units by use a splitter system. The G2 Controller will control the function of the splitter valves.
Integrated Duty Cycle Timer – Larger capacity FloClear models D-03 and D-07 used for web operation use a duty cycle timer to extend filter life.
Purchasing FloClear through one of the ten local Prisco sales offices offers the significant advantages of Prisco expertise in optimizing press and fountain solution performance plus one-stop installation and support.

New Partnership Opportunity for Printers’ Reduces Environmental Impact
Prisco is pleased to announce a new opportunity for printers’ to reduce the impact of their pressroom operations on the environment while improving quality. The GO GREEN WITH PRISCO initiative is a partnership between Prisco and its customers which provides a range of new strategies, products and consultative services to lower environmental impact. Strategies may include changes to work procedures, improved chemical management technology, changes to products utilized, upgrades to or replacement of equipment, integration of recycling programs and reduction of overall chemistry consumption.
The GO GREEN WITH PRISCO partnership offers services such as VOC analysis, VOC reduction programs, pressroom audits, chemistry disposal programs and even marketing assistance to let the printers’ clients know about the printers’ environmental responsible efforts.
While there is much being done by printers and suppliers with ink and paper, we believe that Prisco is the first manufacturer to deliver comprehensive environmentally strategies to all pressroom processes. The commitment of Prisco to reduce emissions was first realized over twenty-five years ago with Prisco’s introduction of the first commercially viable alcohol-free fountain solution. We continue this legacy of innovation today with our new GO GREEN WITH PRISCO initiative.
