STRUCTURIX S Eco
In addition to the unique advantages of the ‘eco ’ processing technology, the Structurix S eco guarantees several other features. These include a large capacity, superior image quality, precise replenishment and minimum processing costs.
Structurix S eco can be set to either a 5 or an 8 minute cycle. In both cases, the throughput of the S eco is sufficient to meet the needs of large film users or companies with high production peaks. When set to the 5 minute cycle, the Structurix S eco processes no less than 51 cm of film per minute or 78 films per hour of 35 x 43 cm. In this 5 minute cycle, the processor forms the basis for the “Eco Film System”. In such a system, the Structurix film, chemistry and processor are all carefully matched to ensure the best possible eco logical results in terms of silver in the wash water while ensuring the lowest chemistry consumption and waste.
Superior image quality
Structurix S eco is perfectly suited to applications that demand the highest image quality. The technology in terms of rack construction and roller configurations has proved its worth in previous processors. A microprocessor provides “smart” control of all process functions. This results in perfect, even drying of your films in all ambient conditions.
The surface area of the film is measured accurately on entry by 11 detection rollers. This unique method of scanning actually controls the replenishment far more precisely than a length only measurement, thus keeping replenishment usage to an efficient minimum.
The Structurix S eco has a “drive cycle” or “anti-crystallization’ cycle, which in stand-by mode activates the roller transport mechanism sporadically for short periods of time. This cycle keeps the energy consumption to an absolute minimum, while avoiding crystallization of chemicals on the rollers and, therefore, increases the life of the processor considerably.
The microprocessor has seven pre-programmed processing cycles, varying between 1.5 to 12 minutes. These standard cycles can be set quickly and
easily. Simply select the required cycle time on the display, and the other processing parameters such as development temperature, dryer level,
fixing temperature and replenishment rates adjust automatically.
This feature allows you to manually adjust the processing speed from five to 12.5 minutes in steps of 30 seconds. Processing parameters can be locked and protected by a special password.
The Structurix S eco is equipped with highly reliable electronics, designed to give security of operation. All processing parameters, including temperature, speed, replenishment quantities and drying capacity, are controlled by a microprocessor.
Multifunctional drainage system
The Structurix S eco is equipped with threeway drainage valves. This makes it simple to direct photo-chemicals and cleaning chemicals to the correct collection tank. The valves also prevent the formation of toxic fumes in the waste chemical collection tank.
Structurix S eco needs only an absolute minimum of maintenance. The top parts of the racks are easily removed and cleaned without having to take the racks out of the tanks. The Structurix S ECO is designed and built to facilitate regural cleaning of the film sensor rollers on the feed tray. The rollers can be reached easily by removing the feed tray. In order to prevent algae growth, the wash water is automatically drained when the
machine is switched to “off”.
Intuitive operating panel
The operating panel provides visual information about the processing parameters, including the current processing temperature, cycle time, dryer setting, replenishment quantities, the OK indication for film input and the remaining cycle time. As befits such a universal machine, there is a choice of 12 languages for the display messages. The temperature of the developer and dryer can be adjusted incrementally on the control panel to suit the processing program chosen.
Unique daylight system
When combined with the Structurix Feeder, the S eco becomes a unique and practical daylight system. The feeder automatically follows the film processing speed of the S eco processor, even when the speed is altered. In cases where the Structurix S eco is used without a feeder, an optional light-tight cover can be ordered.
The Structurix S eco has been awarded by DIBT (Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik) for its overall quality and performance, a certificate numbered z-77,41-3.
