    Ricoh mp c5503

    hello Guys,

    id like some advise on the developing units. Do you guys vacuum the developer out and reuse them or do you trash them and buy new ones upon expiration.

    thank you in advance, you guys have been really helpful on everything.

    dude i hold on to everything but wrap it,mark it and keep meter/sympton info on it............
    I will dump the developer and vacuum and just add a bag of new developer when i get dirty tank with clumps,chunks..

    Personally I bin them these development units are not designed to be refilled and they are quite cheap to buy. But everyone has there own way they do things good luck

    Ricoh {UK} they about 100 ish uk
    But you have to be a dealer to buy from ricoh. If not you can sometimes find them on ebay but they would not have no warranty on them.
    Also Parsia or katun if you have them where you are but you would also have to be a office equipment reseller to buy from them.

    AS a previous buyer from KATUN,THEY SUCK BIG TIME............

    THERE is nothing difficult taking apart a 03 dev unit..
    I dont see the need to buy new..
    if you start dumping developer or machine keeps undertoning/overtoning i can see a new dev unit but
    I feel these units can go 500k easy
