Where is the best spot for a washout booth in my production layout? This was a question posed by a Printwear reader, and here is Kieth Stevens’ response:
Typically, the best spot for a wash-out booth is nearest to a water source. However, the best spot for your booth can depend on what you are washing out. If you are washing out emulsion after exposing the screen, you want the washout booth set up close by to avoid further exposing the screen to outside ambient light before washing it out.
However, if the washout booth is going to be used just for reclaiming screens, then it is best located closest to a convenient area for reclaiming. If the washout booth is used for cleaning screens after printing with a water-based ink, then locating it closest to the print area would be best.
Remember, it can be very noisy when blasting a screen with water pressure, so it’s also generally a good idea to make sure the booth isn’t too close to offices, the breakroom, or anywhere in the shop where you want to avoid excessive noise.
