Pigment grinders in this ink manufacturing facility were poorly controlled, which resulted in having the ink batches taking longer time for mixing. Setting standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for the grinders operation, including control of the flow rate, monitoring of the viscosity, and the use of dispersing agents reduced the grinding time per batch, thus decreased the energy consumption.
