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 indefinitely. 

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.

Carlos Sosa
Awesome service

Very knowledgeable staff, always happy to help.

simple, but works great

I have an old HP 500 designjet that has been inactive for a while.
The priming tool worked well in repriming the ink tubes.

Would Have Worked, But...

Did nice job of sucking ink and air out of lines, but this printer (T1200) would only show one bad print head at a time. All three had to be replaced but would give the print head installation not complete message and show the next print head as bad until all three were replaced. Then it went through the whole print head setup procedure.
