    I am setting my press washup settings for the first time.
    It does pretty good, but i am not getting completely "free of washup solution" when finished.
    I've increased the water percentage and time and decreased the roller wash.
    I'm in California so our roller wash kinda sucks.

    Can someone share their settings for program 1?
    Thanks.

    Hi it is going to be trial and error but your heading in the right direction that low voc wash takes forever ever to dry I would try more water . also check that the wash is water miscible good luck

    it is getting better every change I make. I was hoping someone had real world number just to make sure I'm not doing anything crazy.
    Thanks for the reply.

    Thank you for the help, but I don't understand how to use this chart. I understand the Spanish words, but not how to apply the numbers to the input on the cpc.

    Does your tray look like this after a wash ? This is an SM74, not a 52. First wash and what was used was only hot water and something that far exceeds Cal Prop 65 requirements.
    Using your wash program and a quality wash and a specific product will yield results like this and make whatever wash you use more effective. Low VOC's washes will always dry slower but they will be more effective. If you want info feel free to PM me
