I am looking to replace the developer and water tanks in our processor. Both have developed cracks which are leading to corrosion underneath the tanks. I would also be interested in replacing the bottles, which are very stained. Re: the bottles: I was told that we were not to clean them with anything, but wonder if we could use bleach as long as it was rinsed out well after the cleaning. Thank you for any help.
On my CP1000 the replenishment pump motor is running, the belts & gears are fine and don't appear to be slipping, the pumps are turning, the impellers are fine, the vertical pipes are not obstructed, I opened the adjusting screws all the way open. The tanks are full. When the replenishment is requested, I can hear the speed increase yet no fluid is pumped up the vertical pipes and out. I have no replenishment, the system does not consume any chemistry. All 3 pumps behave the same. Can anyone tell me how fast the pumps/motor should be turning? I measured the pump drive gear with a digital tach: 93 RPM normal rate and about 200 RPM in replenishment. The manual says the speed should double which it does but I must assume I am not reaching the desired speed to move fluid. The speed is about the same with the tanks removed - so not a bad pump problem. Does anyone know what voltage should be seen at the motor? Appreciate any thoughts.
Bottles seem to be emptying way too fast. Seems to be going straight out the drain tube. Have replaced all 3 tank caps. No change? Why would it be using so much dveloper, fixer, and water? Just started doing this after tech removed trays for cleaning.Please help
AGFA CP 1000 film processor. Fluid level in all tray(tanks) too low. Replaced all 3 valves on replenisher bottles, no difference. Two different techs came out to fix, but couldn't. Tanks will fill when "manual replenishment" switch is activated - but this shouldn't be necessary. Any ideas??? Jerry
