Dampening and Drying Systems



Crestline® Continuous Feed

 

The Crestline® Continuous Feed dampener is designed to provide an uninterrupted flow of fountain solution to the plate, delivering instant ink and water balance. Color is achieved in only a few sheets. The Crestline runs without alcohol for minimal maintenance and does not allow moisture to migrate back into the ink fountain.

Crestline dampeners are easy to use and include single lever control, gear driven operation, ball bearing construction and an easily removable water tray. Installation can be done in just a few hours, without altering the press, and any operator can be trained to use the dampener in less than an hour. The benefits of increased productivity and profits start the same day the dampener is installed.

  • Segregated from the ink train – no more moisture migrating back into the ink fountain
  • Instant ink and water balance – Crestline responds instantly to changes needed in ink and water balance
  • Runs without alcohol – Crestline provides a thinner film of moisture without the use of alcohol
  • Reduced paper waste – Since color is achieved in only a few sheets, paper waste is decreased significantly
  • Sharper, brighter color with less ink
  • No end seals to leak, wear out or replace
  • Installs without changing the ink train configuration, allowing for maximum inking power
