    On our AB Dick 8820 press we use 3.oz of pro3 universal fountain solution plus 2.oz of isopropyl alcohol and the rest with water in a 32.oz bottle.

    A.B. Dick duplicator presses with a kompac water system should need no alcohol added. You should be able to get by with very little fountain solution also, 3 oz or even less.
