Tips for buying Film Processor

  1. When purchasing an automatic x-ray film processor, facilities should primarily consider the number of films processed per hour.
  2. Automatic film processors work best with constant and regular throughput; therefore, facilities are encouraged to match the film processing time and the workload to optimize chemical usage and output quality.
  3. Film processor units that handle low to medium volumes should process 150-200 films per hour.
  4. The capacity depends on film size and the processing time - both should be clearly indicated in the manufacturer specifications.
  5. General radiography processing times should range from 60 to 120 seconds, while dental radiography may take longer - up to 240 seconds.
  6. X-ray film 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.
  7. To help avoid jamming, slipping, or wrapping in the film processor's transport mechanisms, rapid processing film has a constant, precise base and a certain emulsion thickness.
  8. Buyers should use only film and processing chemicals that are specially designed for automatic film processors.
  9. Before making a purchase, facilities should evaluate the cost of chemicals for a particular film processor and the frequency of replacing it.
  10. 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.
  11. Buyers should also address the costs involved with disposal and silver-recovery. Facilities should look for x-ray film processors that do not require a silver-recovery system because their wastewater contamination is less than one part per million.
