Default Why 4 white cartridges?? Epson 3800

As i´m still waiting for my textile ink i have a few more questions:

My Printer:
https://www.t-shirtforums.com/diy-dtg/t492009.html

Why should i have 4 cartridges full of white ink? Will they all used to print the white base on dark garments?

How many ink is in the complete ink system (tubes, damper and heads)?

4 cartridges of white are necessary because you need to put really much of white on dark garment. You will see the difference if one of them is lost. Then you will probably need to put white twice. You can control the amount of white via your RIP (from 50 to 100% but even when set to 50% 4 channels are printing).

It's hard to say how much ink is in the ink system but for sure it's less than 1/5 of your cartridge capacity (or even less).
