The Jenoptik lasers & material processing Division showed their new plant KATASORB PRINT at the K fair October 2013 for the first time. Jena, November 20, 2013 with the KATASORB system PRINT, Jenoptik has expanded its product range for the purification of waste. The KATASORB presented for the first time in Dusseldorf PRINT is specifically designed for the printing industry: integrated directly into the printing machine, the system reduces the operating costs of the printing machine and increases energy efficiency. So, Jenoptik is aimed at manufacturers of printing presses and printers who want to achieve significant savings in their total cost of ownership. The system is suitable both for the initial equipment and for retrofitting of printing machines. KATASORB PRINT is a complete drying unit with integrated catalytic exhaust cleaning and heat recovery.
This first system designed for integration into printing machines reduces the operating costs of printing plant by up to 85 percent compared to standard systems, such as investigations. A comparison was made for this with KATASORB PRINT is equipped printing machine and a machine, the exhaust air cleaning system without catalytic support is working and is not included in the machine. A model could be shown also through the use of the drying unit KATASORB PRINT CO2 emissions by up to 200 tons per year can reduce. Basis for the model was a printing press with an average service life of 4,000 hours and a volume of almost 58 million square meters per year. Also the annual consumption of energy decreases through the use of the KATASORB PRINT of approximately 400 to 60 megawatt hours. These energy efficiency as well as the compact design distinguish the system KATASORB PRINT. Its high efficiency the concept owes the catalytic material implementation with a low-level system design, as well as the heat feedback in the drying unit.
