AA uses same concept but much bigger 5g multiples. Going through xx Tons per year. 1 Ton is 1000 Kg(2.2 lbs). 1 ton = 1000 liter minus some.
I thought gravity keep heaviest(TI02) on the bottom not mixing but it was not true. Mixing very well.
So stage is
Receive ink from DuPont.
Get on to roller right away.
Degas after 30 min rotation done. Degas Machine. Check YouTube it will be interesting.
All bubbles(invisible) will separate out to up from ink.
This process will reduce capacity because all invisible air which are attached with binders and pigments will be separate from ink. I will say become 3% less ink but same weight because we only take air out but got smaller. Another words customers are not paying for air. 3% more inks.
Customers are not buying air. Solid inks.
After settling down bubbles Filtering will start. Very slow process by machine. Does not mean distrust Dopont. Incase or reduce contaminations. Actually we caught few times. If any objects go into Printhead it is dead head.
Each containers 5g(about 20liters) will be on for turn every day 20 minutes where at controlled temp and Humidity.
Keep doing this until lids have to be opened to fill liter bottle or bags.
At this point do degas again. Shaker could increased air bubbles(not noticeable by eyes)
Once become a little bottle(liter or less) or bag, no more roller, move to shaker vibrator room(do not get wrong idea, pls)and make upside down every other day. Hundreds bottles and bags on one vibrators shakes every 8 hours by timer 10 minutes.
Order picker will pick ink from this rag except to wholesale accounts. Fresh and well shaken.
Like I said before, we eat in Restraunt but we rarely think about what framers and chef did. Lol
Good move John
no I mean Angie.
Deliver perfect ink possible to NeoFamily is AA's goal.
Cheers! Inks are on me always.
