Continous Ink System: How To Turn Your HP, Brother, Epson or Cannon Inkjet Printer Into A Hotrod…

A continuous ink system (CIS), also
known as a continuous flow system (CFS), bulk
feed ink system
, or an off-axis ink delivery system
is a method for delivering a large and practically unlimited volume of
liquid ink to a comparatively small inkjet printhead. Many business and
professional grade printers incorporate a continuous ink system in
their design to increase the speed and volume of printing capacity.
Some aftermarket companies also build retrofit accessories to convert
certain models of consumer-grade printers into continuous flow systems.
Many CIS systems have been developed to cover most
Epson, HP, Canon,
and other printers. These bulk feed systems also allow users to use
inexpensive aftermarket inkjet inks as well as specialty inks for
T-Shirt transfers or Black and White inks for B&W printing.
These
options have allowed users to produce specialty prints at a fraction of
the cost of purchasing special cartridges or using more expensive
printing solutions. 

Retrofit continuous ink tanks designs vary, most
incorporate a
constant level, barometric pressure design. Constant level CIS delivers
a smooth flow of ink to the cartridges as needed. Front tank is vented
to atmosphere, negative air pressure in the back tank delivers ink to
the cartridges.
