Explanation:
You may have to explain just what is happening here, rather than to stick with the English.

The link talks about ink-jet printers, and they refer to Reinigung to clean the jets. Your context is not strictly cleaning, but it is in the ballpark.

I would use something like this and then put a note to the client.

I thought about "Tintenauffrischung" but that made about as much sense to me as "Weinen" might.
