Tips for buying Film Processor

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Before making a purchase, facilities should evaluate the cost of chemicals for a particular film processor and the frequency of replacing it.
  • Buyers should use only film and processing chemicals that are specially designed for automatic film processors.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • General radiography processing times should range from 60 to 120 seconds, while dental radiography may take longer - up to 240 seconds.
  • The capacity depends on film size and the processing time - both should be clearly indicated in the manufacturer specifications.
  • Film processor units that handle low to medium volumes should process 150-200 films per hour.
  • 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.
  • When purchasing an automatic x-ray film processor, facilities should primarily consider the number of films processed per hour.
