Learning Event 3:
DESCRIBE THE PROCESSING PROCEDURE USING THE KODAK ROYALPRINT PROCESSOR
Processing Paper. The Kodak Royalprint processor is intended for certain black-and-white papers that are
resin-coated and developer-impregnated.
a. The paper can be as wide as 17 inches. For proper transport the paper must be at least 5 inches in
length, with a maximum length of 20 inches. The paper must also be in sheet form, the machine does not
process roll paper.
b. Before beginning to process any prints, you should give some thought to maintaining a log sheet of
print sizes and the amount of paper processed in the machine. This information is helpful in that it will let the
operator know when to change the chemical solutions for a new batch. There are three conditions the operator
should keep track of:
(1) Processing the equivalent of 1,000 8- by 10-inch prints (fig 2-2).
(2) When the solutions are 1 week old.
(3) When you have used three bottles of water to replenish the activator.
NOTE: Whichever condition occurs first, you must change the chemicals.
