CLEANING CARTRIDGES AND FLUIDS FOR INKJET PRINTERS
Cleaning cartridges contain a powerful cleaning fluid that is specially formulated to flush out inkjet
inks and dissolve dried ink deposits. Designed to clean both aqueous pigment and dye based
inks, cleaning cartridges are used in a printer just like a normal cartridge. Cleaning cartridges
can be used for three purposes. Firstly, they provide an excellent method on unblocking clogged
jets on a printer. Secondly, they are an invaluable routine maintenance aid and regular use will
ensure that a printer is kept in top working order by cleaning dried ink deposits from the print
head, capping station and wiper blade. Thirdly, they should always be used when changing ink
types on a printer if the two ink sets can not be mixed with each other. This is particularly
important when changing to inks that have a different color gamut than the existing inks. The
reason for this is that mixing two types of ink in a printer will effect color accuracy and can cause
color shifts over a long period of time as one ink is slowly purging out the other. Using cleaning
cartridges in between the two ink types will ensure that the new ink is not effected by the previous
ink. It is absolutely essential that cleaning cartridges are used when changing from dye inks to
pigment inks, or visa versa, as dyes and pigments don't generally mix together well and can
create gel which will block a machine's print heads. There are two methods for using cleaning
cartridges dependent on printer type. For desk top printers, prints are produced onto scrap
paper until the printed output goes clear indicating that all ink has been cleaned from the
machine's ink system. For wide format printer models, the machine's built in 'initial fill' routine or
power cleans can be used to purge cleaning fluid throughout the ink system.

The versions of cleaning cartridges for desk top printers are refillable and so can be used many
times. They are supplied empty and the Dead Head cleaning fluid must be ordered separately in
the size required. For all desk top models, a 4 oz bottle of cleaner is adequate to fill a complete
set of cartridges. The cartridges come with auto reset chips fitted so they can be refilled many
times. Filling syringes and instructions are included.

The wide format versions of cleaning cartridges are self sealing after use and can be used 3 to 4
times for cleaning out a printer.
Instructions for using wide format cleaning cartridges can
be found by clicking here.

As mentioned above, the cleaning fluid contained in cleaning cartridges, called Dead Head fluid,
can be purchased in bulk 4 oz, 8 oz, 500 ml or 1 liter bottles for use in refillable cartridges or for
cleaning out bulk ink feed devices. A 4 oz bottle contains enough fluid to refill a desk top refillable
cartridge 9 times. A one liter bottle is usually adequate to thoroughly clean out a wide format
printer model fitted with a bulk ink feed device.
