Cleaning Cartridges for Epson Wide Format Printers

Cleaning cartridges for Epson wide format printers are pre-filled with our world renowned Dead Head cleaning fluid - a powerful cleaner that effectively dissolves the resins in pigment and dye based aqueous inkjet inks. 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.

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.
