Eradicate ink spills in your continuous ink systems

Continuous Ink Systems are currently very fashionable, so fashionable that one Epson printer comes with a built-in CISS, a system that was taboo in printer companies.

Like we’ve said in a post at the very beginning of this blog, regarding, of course, Continuous Ink Systems, we’ve already started helping people out with the issues related to this product. "We don’t recommend" you install a Continuous Ink System in your printer, since we already know they don’t work as well as they seem to.

Now we can start working on a solution for a very common issue among CISS buyers, who think installing one of these systems is a simple process when even us, techs, have problems with the installation.

What are an ink cartridge’s injectors?

In principle, injectors are the valves or veins that inject ink all over the paper sheet, a process that is done after the print heads get warmed up.

A print heads has may injectors that can become clogged or worn out, eventually burning out and becoming useless.

The differences between dyed and pigmented inks

Dyed inks are, by nature, highly sensitive to the type and quality of the paper sheets you print on, since some kinds of paper are made to absorb more ink than others in their fibers and can soak up dyed inks. If the paper isn’t coated and has high fiber content, your prints may have some “spider-shaped” stains just like the ones shown in this picture: when you’re printing in color, what we call a primary diffusion occurs on the upper side of the paper sheet before the ink has had time to dry.

This will produce many different colors from the main three or five ones. If you’re printing with black ink, there should be no ink bleeding at all, as is shown in the next picture.
