How Printer Ink Cartridges Can Prevent Nozzle Clogging And Smears

2011-10-31

Printer ink cartridges are an essential staple for any business to function efficiently - they must be kept in stock and full in order to ensure necessary amounts of high quality copies can always be made. But getting the most from printer ink cartridges can be more demanding than many companies realize, especially with the costs of printer ink adding up over time. Now, a large number of businesses are struggling to find ways to ensure that their cartridges stretch as far as possible and that the cartridges they are using perform as well as they are able. While it is impossible to keep a recycled ink cartridge running forever, there are a number of ways that a business can help ensure that they do not end up with nozzle clogging or smears as a result of long use.

The first important aspect of any printer ink cartridge purchase that a company must consider is how they will fill up their cartridges when they are empty. Some allow for recycled ink to be injected into the cartridge, allowing them to be refilled when they run out. Others do not naturally support this function, but can be modified to do so by a professional ink refilling service or company. While there is a tendency to think that recycled or refilled ink will cause the cartridge to perform poorly, that is often not the case, especially if the cartridge is used on a daily basis.

There are a number of reasons that a printer ink cartridge can begin to leave smears behind on copies or may become clogged over time. A cartridge that has been improperly stored for a long period or that is used in an environment which is too or too cold has a higher chance of clogging than one that has been properly cared for. In addition, it is important to understand that once a cartridge has been put into use, it cannot be sealed up again, and if it is left for too long without being used, it may cause smudging on pages it is printing, or it may not print at all.

Using a reputable online ink cartridge provider is on way to ensure that a company has the highest quality ink flowing through their printers, whether it is new or recycled, but it is in the details of maintenance and storage where a cartridge will be made to either perform or fail. With proper care and the occasional physical examination, a cartridge can be made to last over a significant number of uses, and lower the overall cost that a company will have to pay for both printer ink and printer repairs.
