Post subject:  If I use refill inks , will my printer be damaged?

The most important part of an inkjet printer is the nozzle which is a fine ink spraying hole of the cartridge. This is where the ink is extracted and it decides the quality of the output.

The clogging of the nozzle (blurry, white lines or blank page outputs) which frequently occurs while using the printer have diverse reasons such as imperfect processing, being used for its life, drying up of the ink around the nozzle or paper dust due to being kept outside or neglected for a long time.

For your reference, the diameter of a cartridge’s nozzle is about 40 to 60 microns, and the diameter of a normal dye ink’s nozzle is 0.5 micron at the maximum. When low quality products are used that are not verified or other model’s ink are mixed, the longer it is used, the greater is the precipitation or cohesion, which can clog the nozzle. However, for the products which have basically gone through compatibility tests, it is very rare that the ink can directly cause the nozzle to be clogged.
