    Life of drums black in the iRADVC 20/22xx series.

    Hi to everybody !

    A simple poll: Drums K in iR ADV C20 / 22xx series can make their life cycle or last a lot less?
    I speak of machines installed only and EXCLUSIVELY office (no graphics).

    Thanks !

    Depends on how picky the customer is... Most of the times it's on -85 when errors occur.. Sometimes +90
    rarely +100

    I agree, rarely see them hit 100% major design fault on this series

    Cleaning blades fail inside the drums frequently especilly when doing solid black and it repeats had this from 25% to 70% Rarely do we ever get above 70%

    Thats the whole problem with these drum units, they dont have a drum blade! Drum cleaning is done by charge!

    So it's actualy some electrical part that fails ? I doubt it, i often see lines on the surface of the rolls...

    Black Drums fail quality wise at 68%
    Color drums often fail mechanically wise very prematurely and it sounds like a main drive noise.
    Fusers and inner finishers are another story
    Either than that everything else is great!

    I had a custmer that had some urgent printing to be done but k drum unit was leaving lines & background all over the prints. I stripped & cleaned the unit & it ran fine for a couple of days untill the new unit arrived.

    Sound familiar but ony works for a couple of prints/days. I even told to do a int.cleaning twice a day, seems to help a bit to..

    But that only works if the cleaning doesn't work, if the roll itself is damaged it doesn't...

    Most of mine get 100% but not much over that. Some I have to replace just over 50% for offsetting/ghosting.
