Default Breeze - cleaning print heads

Has anyone used a ultra sonic cleaner to clean their printheads? We really don't want to have to buy another printhead.

Thank you for the reply. Do you happen to know which one? I looked at the site, and there are several models.

you should ask them. The head holder needs to be the right one, so the fluid.

We have the Print Head Doctor 4 which, unfortunately, some of the solenoids froze up. I took it apart and got everything back and running but the small inline filters are clogged up. I've since disconnected the ultrassonic tub from the machine and currently use that as a standalone. It works great but like Bauman said it's all about the fluid. They've actually just released a stronger more durable/long lasting fluid. A little pricey but definitely seems worth it for a severely clogged printhead. We have used the standard Kornit wiping fluid with little success. The Spectra printheads are one of the more durable printheads in the industry. But take caution to make sure the fluid doesn't heat up too much and delaminate your printhead

We have different print heads on the Storm, but we have used the PHD8 and we replaced it with he PHD12 We love the machine. I know it sounds strange to say that, but we make it part of our 6 month maintenance. We are always printing with great heads, and never worry about it. If you call them, and they are in Canada fyi, they are helpful on the phone and have always taken care of us. I would RECO them to anyone.
