Inkjet Cleaning Products

Absolute Inkjet supplies a large range of cleaning products for Epson inkjet printers – cleaning fluids in bulk as well as cleaning cartridges. All products are based around our world renowned Dead Head cleaning solution for aqueous ink printers.

Dead Head Cleaning Fluid

Specifically designed to dissolve the resins used in aqueous inkjet inks, Dead head is equally effective with both pigments and dye based ink formulations. This powerful cleaner can be used as a service aid to help free up clogged print heads, as well as for flushing a printer when changing ink types. Dead Head also provides an excellent way of cleaning a printer for long term storage to prevent print heads from drying out and clogging. Dead Head cleaning fluid is supplied in bulk bottles for use in refillable cartridges or CIS units as well as pre-loaded in cleaning cartridges for most popular wide format printer models.

Cleaning cartridges

Cleaning cartridges are installed in exactly the same way as regular ink cartridges and can be used for several purposes:-

Unblocking clogged print heads – by using a printer’s built-in initial fill routine or by running cleaning cycles, a printer can be loaded with cleaning fluid to help dissolve stubborn head clogs. Leaving the printer over night to soak with cleaning cartridges installed has proven to be 95% effective in restoring clogged jets.

Long term printer storage – cleaning cartridges are a perfect method for protecting a printer during extended periods of non-use, or for long term printer storage. Once a machine has been filled with cleaning fluid, it can be left indefinitely without the fear that the print heads will dry out and need replacing. When the printer is ready to be used again, simply remove the cleaning cartridges, re-install ink cartridges, and run an initial fill routine or multiple cleaning cycles to refill the ink system.

Changing ink types – cleaning cartridges provide a great method for flushing a printer when switching ink types. Many commonly used aqueous inks such as dye, pigment and sublimation cannot be mixed with each other and will gel or thicken if installed directly in a used printer. This can lead to sever print head clogging. Using cleaning cartridges in a printer before installing the new ink type will remove the previous ink from the machine’s ink system prior to installation of the new ink, and prevent cross contamination between the two ink types.

Regular printer maintenance – using cleaning cartridges on a printer every six months to a year will help maintain the printer in top condition. Cleaning cartridges will remove dried ink deposits and ink resin build up from all components in a printer’s ink system including the print head, dampers, capping station, wiper blade, and cleaning pump.

Cleaning cartridges are supplied in two different formats. For desk top printer models, we supply empty refillable cartridges along with our Dead Head cleaner in a bulk bottle. The refillable cartridges are simply filled using the included syringes, and can be refilled many times for multiple printer cleanings.

For wide format models and inkjet dry labs, we supply cartridges pre-filled with Dead Head fluid that are simply installed in the same way as regular ink cartridges. Wide format cleaning cartridges are good for at least five machine cleanings and can be kept for future use.

Instructions for the use of cleaning cartridges can be found on our support pages.
