Are there pressroom consumables required to operate the Oxy-Dry system?
Yes and no. Solvents are required and mixed with water to create the wash for each blanket. Low VOC solvents are acceptable to be used with our system. Because our system utilizes miniscule amounts of solvent per blanket washer head there will be a reduction in solvent usage. Some printers report that they use 1/5 the amount with our system compared to when they washed blankets by hand. There are no other consumables needed, such as rags or towels. Oxy-Dry has its own Blanket Wash Solvent as well as additional recommended solvents from other manufacturers. These solvents are recommended because they have proven to enhance blanket washer effectiveness through extensive performance and safety testing.
