Kompac II Dampening System

Improve Your Press Performance

Kompac’s range of Automatic Dampening Systems can improve the performance on your press by eliminating the problems inherent in both conventional and alcohol dampening systems. The patented Kompac technology provides the operator with automatic ink/water balance. Kompac Automatic Dampeners completely re-balance themselves at each revolution and carry only the amount of ink and water demanded by the image on the plate. Kompac gives instant startup and runs trouble-free – increasing production by 30 minutes per shift. Guaranteed!

How a Kompac System Operates


Fountain solution is held in the nip reservoir between the Kompac form roller and the Kompac metering roller. The form roller rolls across the plate with the non-image area of the plate taking the fountain solution and the image area of the plate splitting a layer of ink with the form roller.  The Kompac form roller is both water and ink receptive. Ink and fountain solution are milled under pressure at the roller nip. The oscillator roller smoothes out the ink and water film for improved Kompac performance.

Kompac Systems Pays for Itself in 6 Months or Less!

Between a 50% reduction in stock waste and an average increase in production of 30 minutes per shift, the Kompac Automatic Dampening System typically pays for itself in less than 6 months. The Kompac Dampening System prints a thinner film of ink and water enabling jobs to be turned over faster and permitting larger solids, complicated screens, tiny reverses and difficult jobs to be run in an efficient manner. The Kompac Dampening system is a "press proven" technology with over 100,000 installations worldwide. Print the color you never dared to!
