Cleaning cartridges for Epson wide format

Sublim8 cleaning cartridges for Epson wide format sublimation printers can be used for three purposes:-

  • If you are converting an existing printer from regular inkjet inks to sublimation inks, or from one another type of sublimation ink to our Sublim8 sublimation inks, then we strongly recommend using Sublim8 cleaner in the printer first to remove the existing ink from the printer’s ink system. This will eliminate any cross contamination between the two ink types which can lead to jet clogging and color issues.
  • To unblock clogged jets on sublimation printers. The formulation of Sublim8 cleaning fluid is very good at rapidly dissolving the resins used in sublimation inks. Running Sublim8 cleaning fluid through a sublimation printer normally unclogs dried out or blocked print heads.
  • As a regular maintenance tool on sublimation printers to keep them in good working order. Running Sublim8 cleaning fluid through a printer’s ink system will help remove dried ink deposits from the print head, dampers, capping station, wiper blade, and flush box.

Sublim8 cleaning cartridges for Epson wide format sublimation printers

Pre-filled with Sublim8 cleaning fluid, cleaning cartridges for Epson wide format sublimation printers are ready to use and are installed in a printer in exactly the same way as regular ink cartridges. The exception is with the Epson Pro 3800/3880 - these are refillable cartridges that are supplied empty along with a bottle of Sublim8 Cleaning fluid and instructions for use. The process for use is pretty simple:-

  1. Remove the existing ink cartridges and install the cleaning cartridges.
  2. Run an initial fill routine or power cleaning cycles to fill the printer’s ink system with cleaning fluid – running a nozzle check print that shows no color indicates that the cleaner has reached through to the print head.
  3. Let the printer stand for a few hours or preferably overnight to allow the cleaning fluid to dissolve any dried ink.
  4. Remove the cleaning cartridges and re-install ink cartridges.
  5. Run an initial fill routine or power cleans to re-prime the printer’s ink system with ink.

These steps are explained in more detail in our printer cleaning guides on our Sublimation support pages.
