New/used press set up

Post by labelman42 »

Quick question. just installed a used press. Do most of you vent the regular dryers to the outside ??

I know the UV system must be vented.

If you can do it, I'd vent outside. You'll do well to hire a specialist with airflow and that sort of thing, because you may end up creating a vacuum that sucks air and dirt in from the outside, so venting from outside-in may be involved.

This is a big decision and investment. Don't cheap out. You'll have to live with it for a long time.
