Demonstrate competency of the task skills and knowledge by responding to the
procedures, and safety precaution for the automatic film processor.
Learning Event 1:
DESCRIBE THE FUNCTION,
1. In an attempt to produce standardized products of top quality at high
speeds, many types of automatic processors have been designed and tested. It
would be impractical to teach the operation of each individual type of machine.
However a basic understanding of the fundamentals common to these processors
will be helpful.
Many of these fundamentals can be applied to any type of
machine a soldier may encounter. In this lesson you will become familiar with
the Versamat 11C-MW Continuous Film Processor.
2. The function of a processing machine is to transport film through various
solutions for a specific length of time. This function must be repeatable.
3. Continuous film processors are designed for the rapid processing and drying
of black and white film, color negative and positive transparency slide film.
Continuous processors can process both roll and sheet film. Keep in mind that
no one machine can process both black and white and color film.
processors are designed either for black and white film only or color film
A color processor could process black and white film if it were
modified. However, this would be wasteful in time and money. There are also
new processors coming on the market that will process
