Tape-cleaning machines

I use 9840 tape drives for my storage. We had a tape-cleaning machine that we used but now it is broken. Is it necessary to buy tape cleaning machine for 9840s or are they self-cleaning? If I had to buy one, which companies would you recommend I buy from? Your help will be highly appreciated.

Sorry, this one is out of my league. There are too many different pieces of hardware for me to keep up on them all -- especially by model number. For this, I regret to say you should turn to the people who make the drive. Sorry.
