While holding a towel or large sponge under both drain bellows to prevent
the solution tray and clean both (para 315).
(9) Remove the caps from the ends of the activator and stabilizer drain
bottles (figure 36) and screw them securely on the openings at the top of
Do NOT mix activator and stabilizer solutions. Mixing
these solutions causes toxic ammonia fumes. Dispose of
used solutions one at a time in a sink, flushing with water
thoroughly while pouring each solution. The activator
solution may cause eyeburns and prolonged or repeated
contact with the skin may cause irritation. If activator
is splashed in the eyes, flush eyes immediately with cool
water for 15 minutes and get medical attention.
(10) Carefully remove the drain bottles from the base assembly. Remove
the caps from the top openings of the drain bottles. Discard the used
solutions in a sink, one at a time, flushing thoroughly with water while
pouring each solution into the sink. Rinse each cap thoroughly in water
before replacing it (para 36a).
(11) Rinse and replace the drain bottles in the base assembly.
(12) Reassemble the solution tray, processing rack assembly, housing
assembly, and feed shelf (para 36).
(13) When ready to develop the exposed paper (stabilization type),
install the activator and stabilizer supply bottles containing fresh
chemicals from (4) above, and as described in para 311.
e. Shutdown procedure. For a shutdown not exceeding 12 hours, with
usable solutions in the print processor (para 39c), depress the illuminated
startstop switch (figure 31) until the indicator lamp (figure 32) is
extinguished. Ascertain that the ambient temperatures will remain 65 to
85 F (18 to 29 C). For a shutdown exceeding 12 hours, remove the
activator and stabilizer chemical supply bottles. Upon restarting the print
processor, replace the activator and stabilizer chemical supply bottles (d
above) and allow it to run for 5 minutes before developing the first exposed
