Epson 2200 Continuous Ink Supplies

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Doug Von Gausig, May 18, 2005.

  1. Does anyone out there have experience with the various Continuous Flow
    Systems available for the Epson 2200? Lyson's seems to have a good
    reputation, but there are several others now available, and most are
    less expensive than Lyson's. Any comments?

    Thanks,
    Doug

    Lyson is a reputable 3rd party ink dealer. I'd check with Inkjetart.com
    for comparisons of the Lyson inksets vs. Epson. They sell both.
    I use a bulk ink system on my big Epson 9000 certainly saves money.

  3. No problems with nozzle clogging, heads wearing out, ink drying in
    lines, etc.?

    4 or 5 years ago Lyson had that reputation, for the most current inks
    just check the Inkjetart web page. They do sell Epson, Lyson and bulk
    ink systems. I use a much different printer, lines measured in feet not
    inches (meters not millimeters?) Nothing like check with someone who
    sells both. They have an active tech support for prospective buyers and
    established clients, plus a lot of advise.

    Several companies make them, and generally they
    work fine, with little maintenance -- on dye inks.
    Check out the "Niagara" system from Mediastreet,
    which is essentially the same unit as what Lyson
    sells. WeInk also sells a version, and I'm sure
    there are others.

    With pigment inks there is one additional caveat.

    The CIS consists of some bottles, some tubing,
    and a set of specially fitted "virgin empty"
    ink cartridges. These cartridges have foam
    in them which acts both as a filter and a
    pressure reducer. (Equivalent to the ink
    dampers found in the Epson wide-format
    professional printers.)

    In a CIS that's used with pigment inks, you
    should be prepared to replace these carts on
    some regular basis, depending on your use.

  7. This is my setup

    I got my Epson 2200 bulk ink system from www.inkrepublic.com

    I bought my sublimation ink from www.sublimation.com
    and if I need to use my 2200 to print photos, I simply flush the
    inkrepublic's ink kit and use the pigment ink from
    www.inkspecialist.com

    Things I like about inkrepublic.com are:
    I can always flush the ink and put new/different type of ink without
    change the cartridge.
    I can use the same cartridge over and over again.
    I did try one kit from ebay and because of the sponge design, I would
    not be able to flush the ink. Also, I have always make sure it will
    not dry out which is painful to me.
    Inkrepublic kit does not use sponge therefore, clog is not an issue.
    It also seems that their chip does not do a lot of clean cycle which
    same me some money right there.

    Things I like about sublimation.com
    With their ink, all colors has excellent chromaticity.
    Their ICC color management profiles are simply have the best outcome.

    Things I like about inkspeclist.com
    Their pigment ink is 95%+ as the Epson's original.
    The only thing I can tell is the "Shadow" is a little bit off.
