How to add water-based sublimation transfer ink to inkjet sublimation printer better

In the process of using the sublimation printing machine, adding water-based sublimation transfer ink is one of the common operations. How much ink is left to add ink? What problems should be paid attention to when refilling ink   cartridges? Today, I will share with you the things you need to pay attention to in the process of adding ink.

When refilling sublimation printing ink, make sure that the ink cartridge is completely intact. You can test it with water beforehand. If you replace the ink with a new one, the original ink cartridge should be thoroughly cleaned, 
otherwise the two different inks will be mixed and a chemical reaction will occur, which will cause the phenomenon of plugging.

In order to facilitate the use of the washing function that comes with the machine, some users are actually not good, so it is best to wash it several times with water until clear water is seen. Be sure to change the ink in an 
appropriate amount. In order to save trouble, some users fill up the ink every time. This will cause the ink cartridge to leak ink during use, and the leaked ink may wet other internal parts of the printer, and damage the printer.

After installing the dye sublimation ink, it is best not to put the ink cartridge back into the cartridge holder immediately. Let it stand for a few minutes before putting it on again. This is to allow the ink to slowly penetrate into the corners of the sponge pad to ensure the ultimate print quality. There is also to avoid exposing the ink cartridge to the air for a long time, which is easy to produce dry up and clogging.

Finally, we remind the majority of photo machine users not to wait until the ink is used up. It is best to add ink to the ink cartridge when there is 10% of the ink left. If you really can’t see the remaining amount of ink, you have to  observe the printing effect and find that If there are broken lines in the printed image, ink should be added.
