Environment-Friendly Film-Procession Chemicals by DÜRR NDT and the new "laptop-like "automatic film processing unit

Dürr NDT GmbH Co.KG16, Bietigheim-Bissingen, Germany

Most of those who are working daily in a dark room don't even know about the danger they expose themselves to. Not only the improper handling of X-ray or gamma sources represents the risk of coming down with cancer but also the use of conventional film-processing chemicals.

DÜRR NDT has launched their new "green" film processing chemicals. They are free of such ingredients like hydroquinone and aldehyde, which are known to be carcinogenic.
The hazardous components have been replaced with ascorbic acid - also known as Vitamin C.

Thanks to this new and recently patented formula, the risk to develop a severe disease is reduced considerably. As a positive side effect the accumulation of dirt inside the processing unit is reduced remarkably. Pleased customers report to clean their device maximum once per quarter only.

Since the chemistry is classified as "Non-dangerous goods", shipping is cheap and even to remote sites, e.g. offshore installations, easy as shipping water. The chemistry comes as a single bottle concentrate. The concentrate just has to be mixed with water and this is sufficient. DÜRR NDT's new chemistry works for all film brands and both for manual and automatic film processing. Performance reports by BAM, Berlin are available on request.

Parallel to the new green chemistry, DÜRR NDT launched their ultra mobile automatic film processor XR 24 NDT. With 25kg (55lb) it is virtually the laptop among the other table top devices. A wide range of accessories, like replenishing units, a daylight feeder which makes a dark room obsolete and a clever water recycling system for rinsing the films even when the device is installed on a truck or trailer for instant on-site processing, are available.
