I’ve got an Epson 1430 and the Piezo DN inks. I have a few issues. First off, the cartridges evaporate due to the rubber plugs not being very tight. This wastes a ton of ink but more concerning is the pigment that is dried inside the cartridges. Will re-filling the cartridges cause any issues with density? Should I flush them with something?
Secondly, I just ordered a new set of cartridges to fill with Piezo Flush. Hoping that I can just replace the cartridges between jobs with piezo flush and put the Piezo DN cartridges somewhere. Is there a best practice on storing these cartridges for possible extended down-time? Plastic bag? Humidification? Tape over the holes?
Trying to finally get back into printing with the Piezo system, but refilling the cartridges every few weeks always threw a wrench into my interest and I finally just gave up. Now I’m trying to see what I need to do to alleviate the evaporation issue and not printing but every two or three weeks.
