Re: enclosed processors

From:N Kenneison <>

We have a TP1050 and been using it for about 18 months now - we change
every solution once it has doen TEN cycles - processing between 200 and
240 a night, means changing one solution a day. Waxes changed at the
same count, flush reagents changed once a week. Keeps maintenance tme
down - does take a while to get it so the screen shows 0 cycles to 9
cycles. We also do a daily wax clean after each run on one wax. THE
reagent management system and the ease of changing the solutions was one
of the major reasons for our choosing it - want to get a second one.
We use industrial methylated spirit - do not knwo what that equates to
in the US
