Detection rollers and micro-switches
c. Check for proper film movement by inserting several 8- by 10-inch test
films into the processor and observing the film movement through the processing
section, squeegee, and dryer.
The test films check the transport system for
tracking of the film through the racks and crossovers, check the dryer for
proper drying temperature, and remove any dirt that may be on the rollers.
d. The processor is now ready to operate in a definite series of steps.
Study these seven steps so that you can recall them without difficulty.
(1) Turn on the main power switch and outside water source.
(2) Turn on the dryer fan, main drive, and developer recirculating pump
switches. Press the replenisher pump switch to the desired operating mode AUTO
(3) Consult processing data sheets to determine the processor speed,
water temperature, dryer temperature, developer temperature and replenishing
rate for the particular film you are using.
(4) Set the developer and fixer flow meters to the recommended flow rate
by adjusting the replenishment control valves.
