ionic compounds in the water treatment of the toner are to blame for the drums breaking regularly.
I'm not very knowledgeable and am just guessing, but...
it sounds like the ionic compounds are electrically charged and that's causing the iron in the toner to clump? Those larger iron clumps are damaging the drums?
Until this is resolved for each of us individually, is there a way to clean the drums to reduce the wear and tear to prolong them?
I wouldn't normally investigate this issue and would just replace drums regularly (as annoying as that is) and send them back, but I'm down to two drums in inventory on my two machines and my supply order is backordered. My local rep is trying to source some, but I'm a few weeks away from my machines being offline.
So, any suggestions on prolonging? (besides the little blue pill?)
