HP Scitex LX Printer Family - Ink system components

Ink cartridges
Ink cartridges store the ink and are connected to the printheads, which deposit the ink on the substrate. You can purchase ink cartridges for your printer, see How to order supplies.
  caution:
Observe precautions when handling ink cartridges because they are ESD-sensitive devices (see the Glossary). Avoid touching pins, leads and circuitry.
Each cartridge contains 3 liters of HP Latex Ink, which requires no special ventilation and creates no hazardous waste. The cartridge consists of a bag contained in a recyclable cardboard box.
Printheads
The printheads take ink from the ink cartridges and deposit it on the substrate. You can purchase printheads for your printer, see How to order supplies.
  caution:
Observe precautions when handling printheads because they are ESD-sensitive devices (see the Glossary). Avoid touching pins, leads and circuitry.
The printer's six-color writing system uses three dual-color printheads with a total of 31,680 nozzles (5,280 per color).
Printhead cleaner roll
The printhead cleaner roll is a roll of absorbent material used to clean surplus ink from the printheads after each pass over the substrate.
To change the printhead cleaner roll when necessary, see the Maintenance and troubleshooting guide.
  note:
You should not touch the printhead cleaner roll except when you need to replace it. Any interference with the roll may prevent the printer from keeping track of roll usage, in which case you may see spurious error messages, and a printing job may be cancelled unnecessarily.
Aerosol filters
The printheads produce many fine droplets of ink, most of which are placed accurately on the substrate. However, a small proportion of these droplets escape sideways; the two aerosol filters are placed on either side of the printhead carriage to intercept them.
To change the filters when necessary, see the Maintenance and troubleshooting guide.
Ink deposits
In order to check the status of the printhead nozzles, the printer expels a few drops of ink from each nozzle of each printhead into the ink deposits. This is done at the start of each print job, whenever a printhead is replaced, and whenever you request a printhead check from the HP Internal Print Server.
To clean the ink deposits when necessary, see the Maintenance and troubleshooting guide.
