The dampers are the white cartridge-like items that connect to the ends of the ink lines and sit on top of the print head. They serve as both holding resevoirs for ink for the print head and also as filters. If you are having ink flow issues/starvation on your white ink and have not replaced/flushed these ever and only replaced your WIMS filter once - then you should seriously consider replacing all four white ink dampers and the WIMS filter. You can contact your distributor to purchase these items ad their tech support should be able to walk you through the process.

Hope this helps.

Re: White ink

The filters should be replaced every 30 days (once a month or so). Dampers should be replaced every 6-12 months on white (or as needed if earlier). The capping station should be replaced or at least removed and completely cleaned every 12 months or so as well. Have you done any of these things in the past two years?

Re: White ink

If I'm honest I've only ever changed it once in 2 years... But production is fine all day

Re: White ink

How frequently are you replacing the WIMS filter on your system?

Re: White ink

How often do I need to clean out the dampers and has anyone got tips on what else to clean, I get White ink problems around the same time each day after doing a full day off production(around 40 prints)
