Tips for buying Film Processor, Cine
- These units process rolls of 16 or 35 mm film used to record fluoroscopic images. Depending on the quality of the image being processed, the cine film travels from 0 to 6.1 m/min.
- Quality images' processing time may range from one to five minutes.
- In order to minimize processing time and variations in film density, systems should be able to perform chemical agitation and re-circulation.
- Another recommended capability is the performance of automatic replenishment, to maximize solution usage.
- General radiography processing times should range from 60 to 120 seconds, while dental radiography may take longer – up to 240 seconds.
- Processors should have as many automatic controls as possible to optimize results. Automatic temperature and replenish controls will help eliminate human error and ensure clear film results.
- To help avoid jamming, slipping, or wrapping in the processor's transport mechanisms, rapid processing film has a constant, precise base and a certain emulsion thickness.
- Buyers should only use film and processing chemicals that are specially designed for automatic film processors.
- Before making a purchase, facilities should evaluate the cost of chemicals for a particular processor and the frequency of replacing it.
- Some special chemicals were designed to control swelling and shrinking of the film emulsion and to process the film at specific temperatures while it moves through the rapid transport system.
- Buyers should also address the costs involved with disposal and silver-recovery. Facilities should look for processors that do not require a silver-recovery system because their wastewater contamination is less than one part per million.
