(2) The crossover also acts as a squeegee by removing most of the liquid
adhering to the film's surface. The film passes from the feed end through all
seven processing tanks in this manner. The operator may, however, bypass any
tank by using a Skip Rack Crossover.
(3) The final tank before the dryer compartment is a cascade spray wash
which removes any remaining solutions from the surface of the film.
Immediately after the last wash tank, the film passes through a roller squeegee
assembly which removes most of the surface water.
(4) From here the film enters the dryer compartment and is directed
downward between a series of rollers.
Once it reaches the bottom it passes
through another turnaround assembly and back up, again between a series of
rollers. While the film is in the dryer compartment warm air is directed at
both sides from a series of air tubes.
The processed and dried film then
passes into either a receiving bin (for sheet film) or a take-up adapter (for

replenishment chemical system, and an impingement dryer system for complete
processing during one operation.
The processor has seven wet tanks--two for
developer, three for fixes, and two for cascade spray wash. A vertical roller
rack in each tank leads the film to the bottom of the tank and back to the top.
The film then goes to the rack in the next tank through crossover rollers.
From the wet section the film is passed to the dryer through a squeegee
