ZAC plate processors are compatible with Fujifilm low chemistry, 'lo-chem' plates that significantly reduce chemistry consumption and maintenance.
The FCF-V Series perfectly complements Fujifilm’s Superia PRO-V low chemistry plate. It is easy to clean and maintain, with an incredibly small footprint, resulting in a simple solution that has clear environmental benefits.
- Environmentally friendly and simple processing
- Easier maintenance of finishing unit (only one bath)
- Less waste produced
- Smaller footprint due to a shorter finishing unit
- No need for replenishment
Market-leading low chemistry plate production for violet applications
The combination of the very latest plate and chemistry technologies, together with a state-of-the-art Fujifilm finishing unit, results in industry-leading chemistry and water use figures. Our low chemistry systems provide benchmark solutions for improving environmental and business performance. The benefits of this solution are as follows:
Lower chemistry consumption
When Superia PRO-V is used with our low chemistry finishing units, no chemical replenisher is required meaning chemistry consumption is considerably reduced. For a printer using around 10,000 B1 plates over a 1-3 month period, chemistry consumption can be reduced to around 400 litres, a reduction of over 70% (depending upon the existing system used).
Lower water use and minimal waste
As Superia PRO-V does not require a post-exposure rinse, mains water is eliminated and water consumption is considerably reduced. A simple water top-up to the developer chemistry is all that is required to keep the system ticking over effectively. As a result, waste production is also considerably reduced.
The elimination of chemical replenishment and the unique formulation of the developer resulting in a much cleaner bath which equates to a simpler maintenance regime and easier cleaning.
