Advice on Choosing a Pressure Washer for Screen Reclamation

Use these helpful tips to improve your screen-reclamation process. 

Pressure washing the screen is one of the most critical aspects of the manual screen-reclamation process. One of the greatest mistakes many screen-printing facilities make is to invest in a pressure washer that lacks the required PSI to remove the stencil and contaminates from the mesh properly.

The pressure washers offered at your local hardware store typically lack the necessary power to do the job. The standard 1,100-1,500 PSI will remove the stencil, but will leave residue in the mesh due to the lack of PSI in many cases. You should utilize a unit with a minimum of 2,000-2,500 PSI to properly reclaim and degrease your screens.
