X-Ray Film Processors and Chemicals

X-Ray Film Processors:

Euroteck Systems are the UK and Ireland distributors of Protec GmbH and Dürr NDT X-ray film processing equipment and chemistry.

Established in 1984, Protec produce the Optimax 2010 NDT, Optimax 2010 NDT Mobile and Compact 2 for NDT.

In addition to the NDT range, we can also supply Medical, Veterinary and Mammography variants of the Optimax 2010 and Compact 2 – Please contact us to discuss your application.

Optimax 2010 NDT – The Optimax 2010 NDT has been designed for NDT applications. The containers for the regeneration and used chemicals are stored conveniently below the tanks on an optional open working table. A mobile version of the Optimax 2010 NDT is also available, typically used in mobile darkrooms.

Film detection 4 infrared sensors
Film format Min. 10 x 10cm (4 x 4”) Max. width 35cm (14”)
Film processing time 2:00 to 10:00 minutes
Film output at 3 mins development time 24 x 30cm = 174 films per hour
Film output at 5 mins development time 24 x 30cm = 71 films per hour
Water flow rate 1.9 l/min while processing / 0.0 l/min during standby
Water connection/pressure ¾”; 2-10 bar (¾”; 29 – 145 psi)
Tank volume 12.5l Developer, 12l Fixer and 13l Wash: 5 litres

XR 24 NDT – The “laptop” amongst the automatic film processors. The ultra-portable XR 24 NDT is recommended for the automatic development of smaller amounts of X-ray film during mobile or static operations. With the optional daylight loader attached, it makes it possible to operate the system outside of a standard darkroom.

Technical Data:

  XR 24 NDT
Dimensions (H x W x D) 44 x 42 x 51cm (17 x 16 x 20”)
Weight 25kg/55 lbs
Power supply 230 VAC/50-60 Hz / 4.0A
With external transformer 110 VAC
Power consumption Tank heating: 400 Watt / Dryer 450 Watt
Film detection 1 microsensor
Film format Min. 2 x 2cm (0.8 x 0.8”) Max. width 24cm (10”)
Film processing time 5:30 to 10:00 minutes
Film output at 8 mins development time 24 x 30cm = 11 films / 10 x 48cm = 16 films per hour
Water flow rate 2 l/min /0.52 g/min while processing
Water pressure 2 bar min. / 6 bar max.
Tank volume Developer and Fixer 5 litres (1.32 gal)

All equipment shown above is compatible with the Dürr NDT “Green” X-ray Chemistry described below.

X-Ray Film Processing Chemistry

Green” X-Ray Chemistry – The unique benefits and special features:

Single bottle system: No starter or additives needed. Simply mix the concentrate with water and you’re done. Can be supplied in either 6 litre containers to make 20 litres of solution, or 1.5 litres containers to make 5 litres of solution.

Efficient: When regeneration is used, considerably lower regeneration rates are possible than with conventional chemicals.

Freezing and Thawing: Even when the product is frozen and thawed (e.g. during transport), the usability is not compromised and is guaranteed.

70% less cleaning: The formulation with Vitamin C means that cleaning cycles can be carried out far less frequently.

Certified: BAM certificated. Works on all known X-ray film processors and X-ray films.

Non-Hazardous to Health: The removal of carcinogens (aldehyde and hydroquinone) means that there is no risk to health.

Non-Hazardous Goods: As the chemicals do not contain any hazardous substances, the product can be transported using conventional means without the need for the carriage of dangerous goods regulations.

Almost odour neutral: More pleasant almost neutral developer odour.

Shelf life: At least 24 months storage stability.
