Achieving cost effective local regulatory compliance in the printing and converting industry requires a complete understanding of both regulatory standards and the printing process. Through experience, Anguil has developed unparalleled expertise in meeting your unique requirements. We understand the effects of water versus solvent-based inks on the line, elimination of odors and toxic fumes from dryers and oven tunnel exhausts, and the capture of fugitive emissions. Over 300 successful printing installations...
Typical modern printing processes utilize solvent-based dyes. The evaporation of the dye solvents into the ambient air during the printing process may expose the workers to various chemicals. Depending on the type of solvents in case, the solvents have different long term exposure limits, which should be obeyed. Component specific measurements are necessary to protect the workers from exposure while avoiding unnecessary interruptions to the printing process from false alarms.
The printing industry covers facilities engaged in newspaper publishing and printing, lithographic printing, gravure printing and commercial printing. Ink production companies manufacture inkjet cartridges and printing and inkjet inks, including lithographic, flexographic, gravure and letterpress inks. These products are sold to commercial printers, newspaper and magazine printers, office supplies wholesalers and screen printers. There is a need to address a wide range of emission control, air filtration and...

Additive manufacturing continues to experience rapid growth as companies invest in 3D printing equipment capable of producing plastic and metals based parts. The 3D printing process generates toxic fumes and airborne dust when operators are post-processing and finishing parts.
Solvent based inks in different colors and patterns are applied to paper, plastic, film and foil substrates. Finished products include all sorts of wrapping paper, wall covering, candy wrappers, flexible food packages, shrink labels, high quality magazines and many, many more. These industries employ ovens or dryers to remove the solvents from the finished product.
During production of printed materials the ambient air in the working area absorbs a lot of gaseous pollutants (contaminants) that have so-called `paint smell` - solvents of various kinds (alcohols, ketones, aromatic hydrocarbons, etc.). The presence of these substances in the working area ambient air produces harmful effect at least on the personnel. In addition, solvent emission into the air is penalized in compliance with current regulation.
