Paper and Printing Press Humidification

Eliminate electrostatic discharge through paper and printing press humidification

Controlling humidity and temperature has become vital in the paper and printing industry. The paper, being hygroscopic in nature, will either lose or absorb moisture rapidly. For this reason, a properly stabilized humidity level in the printing press is crucial in obtaining a quality final product. A relative humidity of 50 to 55% at 20 to 21° C provides the optimal condition for a printing press. Electrostatic discharge related problems are eliminated and the paper retains its strength.

If the relative humidity level is too low, paper will lose its water content and shrink. On the other side, problems with electrostatic discharge will influence the final printing result; therefore, it is very important for digital print machines to have the correct relative humidity when printing.
