Epson SureColor F2000 Tube Wash Flushing Kit

The Monthly Epson SureColor F2000 Tube Wash is No More!

We are pleased to announce that the Epson SC-F2000 monthly tube flush is no longer a requirement. You will be able to choose between the current monthly process or an all-new end-of-day two-minute procedure. Rather than flushing a quantity of white ink and cleaning fluid through the ink lines and system every 4-6 weeks, you instead apply 10ml of a new cleaning solution directly into the capping station before shutdown each day the printer is used. Cost for this new daily maintenance procedure is approximately $10 per month.

To use this new process a free firmware update is required. The update is available for download from the Epson Support site.

What was once the primary maintenance cost for Epson SC-F2000 owners has now been replaced with this new and simple daily cleaning procedure option. The firmware update is absolutely free on the Epson website. The Tube Cleaning Kit is $19.95 and includes three 150ml bottles of cleaning solution specific to this process.

Here's How It Works

  • When powering down at the end of the workday, a reminder to select the tube wash function will appear on the menu screen. The reminder will also occur every 20 hours if the printer is not powered off.
  • Open the top cover and press the appropriate menu button to activate the pump assembly.
  • Drop 10ml of the new cleaning fluid directly into the suction cap. It will be immediately pulled into the pump assembly cleaning the ports and tubes.
  • Power down your printer as normal.
  • Repeat each day you operate the machine.
  • Continue with normal CAP cleaning procedures.

The monthly tube flush function has been a significant financial maintenance concern of Epson SC-F2000 owners to date. Epson has worked diligently and successfully in addressing this machine owner concern with an incredibly cost effective solution.
