Abstract

In present ink supply systems for ink jet printers, air content is generally at a high saturation level, sometimes approaching saturation of 7.8 ppm at 21 C. Provisions, of course, must be made to eliminate a percentage of the entrained air in the ink to prevent bubbles from forming in the printer's supply system during operation. Otherwise, variations in running conditions would occur because of the bubbles.
