Amount ink used in epson 4900 power and regular cleanings?



an idea how much ink is wasted in the epson 4900 during:

initial ink charging?

regular cleaning?

and power cleaning?

nozzle check? close to nothing?

just trying to get a handle on ink usage.

thank you.


These are all great questions for Epson. As I responded to your other post, asking how much ink is used in the Initial Fill, I don’t know for sure but would guess about 20-30ml per channel (to move ink from carts to the print head). I couldn’t guess the ink consumption of the regular or power clean cycles, and the nozzle check uses just a tiny bit of ink. If Epson has a good response for you, we’d be curious to know what you find out.
