Universal HP Designjet Ink Tube System Priming/Air Bubble Removal Tool


L607460, Q1273-60111, C6071-60167, C6090-60106, C7769-60164

Note: This tool is included with all refurbished ink tube systems purchsed from LPS (with the exception of Z6100, Z6200, and Latex tube systems).  It is not necessary to order this tool in addition to an ink tube assembly.

This tool serves the same function as HP's setup printheads. The main difference is setup printheads are one-time-use only, whereas this tool can be used multiple times. 

Demonstration Video - How to Use

Ink Tube Systems have many seals that harden, crack and leak over time. Sometimes the check valves in the print head ports start to allow air into the ink tubes and that puts air into the print heads and causes ink starvation and eventual print head failure because the print nozzles burn out.

This tool will easily remove air bubbles from the ink tubes and extend the life of the ink tube system and protect the print heads from an early death.

Simply remove the production print head, insert the tool and draw out ink and air bubbles. The tool can be used an infinite number of times and is a very handy tool for technicians and end users.

This tool can be used to remove air from ink tubes in the following HP Designjet plotters:
  • Designjet 1050C & 1055CM Series
  • Designjet 5000 & 5500 Series
  • Designjet 4000
  • Designjet 4500
  • Designjet 500/800
  • Designjet T Series
  • Designjet Z Series

Note: this tool cannot be used to prime the Z6100, Z6200, or Latex machines, due to the design of their tube systems.

Great assistance, exactly what we needed

I emailed Sales asking about an odd ink cartridge issue on our Designjet 800, and they were very helpful and pointed me right to the tool I needed. It worked great and resolved our issue (fingers crossed permanently). Thank you again!
