Many of you may be well aware of the numerous advantages that recycled toners pertain to the environment as well as the economy. Environmentally, recycled toners save natural resources (as recycled toners do not require use of virgin raw materials) and energy as well.
Economically, using recycled toners not only save you a great deal of money that you could spend on luxurious items but using recycled toners would open up a new job market and provide employment opportunities; eventually leading to a reduction in the employment rate. Many of you; however, may not be familiar with the actual recycling process of recycled toners.
Here is a closer look how recycled toners are made:
All used cartridges brought to be recycled are inspected to ensure that all the crucial parts are functional. There are four critical components of a printer cartridge that need to execute proper functioning every time a cartridge is to be recycled. These are; the primary charge roller, the opc drum, magnetic sleeve and the wiper blade.
All the parts of the cartridge are dismantled piece by piece, without cutting or damaging the cartridge parts in any way. Be warned, if there is even a slight dent, it could render the recycled toner useless or result in poor quality printing.
Completely worn out parts are replaced with their newer counterparts or other recycled toners to guarantee good printing results. This step needs to be taken out with utter care before the rest of the process; otherwise, lack of care in replacement will hinder the process altogether.
4. Filling and Reassembly
The cartridge is filled with good quality toner powder that matches with the drum and is compatible with the cartridge. The parts are then reassembled and a recycled toner is ready for the next step i.e. testing.
The recycled toner is tested before delivering to the supplier chains or directly to the customers themselves.
The above five steps constitute the recycling process which results in recycled toners. Refilling of toner cartridges is another process altogether but certain individuals confuse the two. Refilling toners does not involved changing any of the above mentioned toners but drilling a hole on the side of the cartridge and refilling it with toner. Refilled cartridges generally leak and have low quality prints therefore we advise our customers to resort to recycled toners.
