What is a remanufactured cartridge?

Posted by Refresh Cartridges Admin on 13 September 2011 10:55 AM

These cartridges are typically created for printers such as HP, Lexmark, Samsung and Dell printers which cannot use compatible cartridges for legal reasons as all four of the aforementioned models use complex cartridges that contain all the printing technology inside the cartridge as opposed to it being contained within the printer. This complex technology cannot be legally copied so instead specialist recycling companies buy the empty cartridges, strip them down, clean them out, refill them and then fully test them before sending them on to us.

It is worth noting that on some newer cartridges, the printer may show the remanufactured cartridge as being ‘low’ due to the fact it has recorded the total number of pages that the unit has produced and hence assume them to be low.  This error can simply be ignored; in fact, many remanufactured cartridges actually contain substantially more ink than their original counterparts.

The environmentally conscious amongst you will also appreciate the fact that by remanufacturing an empty cartridge you prevent it from entering a landfill but instead recycle it so that it can be used again.
