Temp Control Temperature Control

All our film process units (and X-Ray and Conservation systems) employ the PTT Temptronic Controller which heats, regulates and circulates the water bath surrounding and temperature controlling the chemical tanks.

With a 2000 watt heater and powerful circulation pump, this is a reliable water bath temperature controller, and easily lifted out for servicing.

Gas Bubble Control Nitrogen Burst Agitation in Film Process

Bubble grids in sink-line deep tanks can ensure consistent agitation in processing sheet film on a hanger frames.
Our Gas Burst Controller, which is made in stainless steel with a deep-engraved front plate, has two separately switched socket outlets for gas-release Solenoid Valves and dials for setting burst interval and duration, with a setting for "continous".
It is designed to give a burst first at switch-on, not waiting for the interval to elapse.
