Place them in a sink and rinse thoroughly.
Remove any stubborn deposits or stains using an AFP pad.
DO NOT use an AFP pad to clean any rubber roller surfaces.
(4) Change the developer and/or fixer, if due, based on the
recommendations of the chemicals supplier. If not due, go to step (5). Follow these
steps when changing chemicals.
(a) Drain the solution tank(s).
(b) Remove the splash guard(s), cross-overs, and the appropriate
processing rack(s) from the processor.
(c) Rinse off the above parts with warm water (about 90 Fahrenheit
[F], 50 Celsius [C]). Clean off any chemical deposits. Use an AFP pad to remove
stubborn deposits, but do not use AFP pads on any of the rubber roller surfaces.
(d) Stand each rack upright on a flat surface. Check for squareness
and that all rack screws are secure. Test each rack by feeding a piece of processed
film through while turning the drive gear by hand. If the rack does not turn smoothly or
transport properly, correct the problem.
(e) Adjust the rubber squeegee roller on the wash rack. To do this you
tighten or loosen the set screw in the rack frame just opposite the roller bearings. A
piece of paper inserted between the rollers should just "drag" when the rollers are
adjusted correctly. Be sure to check on both ends of the rack to assure that the rollers
are parallel. See figure 1-5.
(f) Rinse and flush the tanks and circulation lines with warm water.
When normal rinsing is not adequate, the use of a systems cleaner, such as KLENE-OX
is recommended. When using systems cleaners be sure to carefully follow the
instructions on the package.
Systems cleaners such as KLENE-OX contain sulfamic acid or other
equally hazardous chemicals. Do not allow any of these chemicals to
come into contact with your skin. In case of contact, rinse the affected
area with running water for at least 20 minutes. If any of these
chemicals enter your eyes, ears, nose, or mouth, obtain medical
