The printing industry is one that has been around for millennia and one that has changed the world on multiple occasions. Today, printing operations continue to provide jobs for hundreds of thousands of individuals in the United States and touch every individual who sees a billboard, reads a newspaper, or simply touches a product.

Even if consumers barely think about it, this industry touches them every day of their life. Graphic arts operations consist of five types of printing operations, namely: flexographic, lithographic, letterpress, screen printing and gravure, and The CMM Group has helped companies in each of these processes to reduce emissions, apply heat more effectively, and control costs while operating more efficiently.

The CMM Group is a trusted leader in process heating solutions for companies in the graphic arts and printing industry and understands the challenges that companies like yours face in balancing quality control, safety, and regulatory compliance.

Since 2001, we have designed custom, turnkey solutions for companies in food manufacturing including pollution control systems, ovens and specialized equipment, and energy recovery solutions.

Pollution Control Solutions for Companies in Printing

Every printing process is unique, and each method is used to accomplish a different purpose. The one thing that all of these things have in common is that the printing process creates a lot of emissions—volatile organic compounds and other hazardous pollutants that affect employees, the local community, and the environment.

Since our founding, we have worked with companies in the printing industry to design, manufacture, and install pollution control systems able to operate efficiently, reduce emissions to or beyond the level required by law, and do all of this without negatively affecting the quality of the product.

When you work with The CMM Group, you can rest easy knowing that we have the experience, expertise, and ability to innovate.

  • Experience: The CMM Group has been in the pollution control business for nearly two decades and has experience dating back much further.
  • Expertise: During our time in business, we have perfected the pollution control process for food manufacturers and are able to design solutions that destroy pollutants without affecting the production process.
  • Innovation: By building custom products for our clients, we know what works, what doesn’t, and how to go beyond the basics. Our solutions can reduce ongoing costs, increase reliability, and provide you sustainable pollution control for years or decades to come.

Many companies in the printing industry rely on regenerative thermal oxidizers for their pollution control needs as these solutions provide efficiency, reliability, and heat recovery while being able to handle high inlet temperatures. However, depending on your needs, emissions concentrations, and expectations, other solutions may be available including thermal recuperative oxidizers, catalytic oxidizers, and rotary concentrators.

Energy Recovery Solutions for Printing

With all the ovens, dryers, and other machinery running during any given day, companies in the graphic arts industry need—and use—a lot of heat. Why not put some of the heat generated by a pollution control system or dryer to good use by leveraging the expertise of the CMM Group to design an energy recovery solution that can put heat to good use?

Whether this is heating an oven by capturing and reusing heat from a pollution control system or leveraging energy to provide building heat, there are many ways to turn otherwise wasted energy into something more useful. The CMM Group specializes in air-to-air, air-to-liquid, and air-to-waste energy recovery systems and can provide these solutions as a standalone option or as part of a larger implementation project.

Additional Services for Printing Companies

Beyond the needs for pollution control and energy recovery solutions, companies in the printing industry often turn to The CMM Group for parts, services, and more. The CMM Group provides pre-project consulting, engineering, and project management services as well as aftermarket services. Our aftermarket services team can refurbish, retrofit or rebuild your equipment to enhance its performance. By implementing a consistent annual preventive maintenance program or inspections, you can extend the life of your equipment. Learn more about our services and request a quote by contacting us.
