99% Recovery or No Charge
We have high standards for our printhead cleaning service. Recovering only a portion of blocked nozzles does you no good so we don’t charge you unless we recover 99% or better. For instance, on a Ricoh Gen4 printhead with 384 nozzles, we don’t consider it successful if there are more than 4 blocked nozzles. This means that your cleaned printhead can go right back to work. We stand behind all our recoveries with a 30-day performance guarantee.

Prior to removing the clogged printhead, print a jet nozzle test pattern showing the clogged jet areas. Include this test pattern with the clogged heads. Printheads that are sent in without a test print are subject to a $50 inspection fee if found to be unrecoverable. Printheads should be uninstalled and reinstalled by a person trained and authorized to perform this service on your machine.
Upon arrival, we get right to work on your printheads. They are typically turned around within 1-2 days, but this depends on the quantity and condition of heads shipped. We use a proprietary process that includes a blend of chemicals that are customized to the ink type in your printhead, and the level of clogging. Throughout the cleaning process, we check the nozzle flow in the entire head to assure it is clean and running with as few deflections as possible.
Following the recovery of your printheads, we will pack and wrap the heads. It will be wrapped in anti-static bubble wrap bags for cushion and impact protection inside of a crush resistant cardboard box. (see pictures) We record the printhead serial number along with the type of cleaning or storage fluid that was last flushed through the head.
