Maintain the external wash water recirculation pump.
(a) Daily top off water reservoir replacing the four gallons drained off at
the previous day's shutdown.
(b) Depending on the volume of film being run, change the wash water
in the reservoir every 3-7 days. Slime or residue on dried film indicates that the
reservoir water should be changed.
(c) When changing water, thoroughly rinse the wash tank, wash rack,
and water reservoir.
(d) If the pump runs, but delivers little or no water, service the pump
valves using the following procedures.
1 Verify that the wash water solenoid is operating when you place
the processor in the process mode. Check that it is clear of debris.
2 Inspect the line(s) between the water reservoir and the pump for
kinks or other damage.
3 Do not lengthen the distance between the water supply and
drain. Do not position the water reservoir so that more than 36 inches of lift is required.
4 Clean the check valves in place, if the pump is moving any
water, to remove any debris obstruction or crystallized chemistry. Refer to figure 1-27.
