Hello, Curt
You can re- fill your empty bag yourself. Use syringe to fill. Buy bulk ink from anybody and keep filling it. Degas is not necessary at all for DTT (digital to textile). If you want to degas it is very simple process but why waste time and effort? Save money and quick service as you wish. Make sure less air possible in bag. Do not give any pressure too. I mean make like a balloon.
Cheers! Beers are on me always.

when i bought my AnaJet FP-125, they said it wasn't an Epson. guess what popped up when i went to install my printer? that's right, the Epson driver utility. they said their ink was their own; it's just relabled DuPont. when i pressed them about this, they had a company policy that ink and hardware COULD NOT be discussed with the end user! their techs were forced to lie to us...for what? Epson and DuPont are great brands. why try to hide this?

i've been refilling my carts for over 3 years with no problems. Peter isn't saying there anything is hurt by degassing. AA degasses their DuPont ink. the point is that "degassing" shouldn't be used as a sales' tactic. i've always had micro-bubbles in my lines whether or not i was used original sealed carts, or refilled carts. the problem is when we get air gaps in the lines, but this doesn't happen if you push the air back out of the bags.

at least the Belquette bags are able to use up all the ink to almost the last drop. i had quite a bit of ink left over in my "empty" AnaJet carts, and that is what started me on this process. i've saved hundreds of dollars by removing that perfectly good ink from "empty" carts and reusing it later. go read all the horror stories right now that the mPower users are dealing with. they are throwing away carts with ink just because the printer isn't reading the chips correctly. it's asinine! and it's a slap in the face to the person whose spent their $$$.

this isn't an argument regarding what company is better. it's about a sales' tactic that isn't necessary. i would argue that your bagged system works well more due to the ink not being in contact with air rather than the whether or not it was degassed. i'm currently printing with bulk carts and i haven't noticed anything different than before.

Im looking at an alternative to Belquette bagged ink, they have been really helpful, but unfortunately the cost of importing with 20% VAT and postage costs not to mention Royal Mails £15 Robber tax !
Camtex DuPont Ink - resoluteink.co.uk

I have 3 bags of Belquette White left and im wondering if as you say I can just syringe another brand into the old Belquette bags, just being mindful to avoid air in them ?

Im told its a very expensive process to degass the ink and does it really make that much of a difference ?

Thanks

it seems I have now ascertained with Belquette (many thanks guys ) and Resolute that indeed I can use other dupont inks syringed into the bags, however I may not get exactly the same results due to not degassing ...

What printer do you have? If you have thin ink line it could happen. Such as many A3 A4 printer who did not change to wider ink line from original. Many A3 A4 size epson modifiers are changed to larger lines. A2 Epson 4000- 4880 do not need to. It comes with bigger line.

Cheers! Beers are on me always.
