The chemistry involved in the processing of radiographic film is a crucial part of the total cycle. Because the goal in processing is to control all factors that influence the intrinsic quality of the industrial X-ray film, the use of optimal chemicals is essential. GE is the exclusive provider of the complete line of advanced, high-quality STRUCTURIX processing chemicals. Specially designed for industrial X-ray applications, STRUCTURIX chemicals are an integral part of our total system approach. They are compatible with STRUCTURIX film types and equipment to guarantee perfect development every time.
Manual X-Ray Processing Chemicals
Automatic X-Ray Processing Chemicals
The standard STRUCTURIX chemicals are recognized worldwide and have been used successfully in industrial X-ray labs for years, thanks to their high quality.
STRUCTURIX G 135 is a three-part developer for use with automatic processing.
STRUCTURIX G135 is known for its stability, long shelf life and self-cleaning characteristics. The self-cleaning feature means that rather than leaving solids floating to the bottom of the pocessor tank, they sink through the drains. This feature keeps the chemistry very clean and results in better film quality.
STRUCTURIX is packed in a shipping carton containing two sets of part A (5 litres), part B & C (2x 0.5 litres) concentrate. One set is sufficient for preparing 20 litres of ready-for-use developer, if used for automatic processing.
STRUCTURIX G 135 s Starter is a one-part, ready-for-use starter solution to be added to fresh G135 developer ready-for-use solution.
G 135 s Starter is supplied in quantities of four sets of 1 litre bottles per box.
When preparing fresh G 135 developer, an additional quantity of 25 ml starter solution per litre ready-for-use developer is added in the processor tank. Thus, a bottle of 1 litre G135 s Starter matches 40 litres of G135 ready-for-use developer.
The use of starter solution is recommended whenever the developer is replaced, ensuring film images with optimal sensitometric results right from the start.
The STRUCTURIX G 335 Fixer is a two-part fixer for universal use. The G335 fixer is universally applicable for automatic and manual processing.
G335 is known for:
It is available in a box of two sets of 5 litres part A and 1.25 litres part B concentrate. One set of part A & B provides 20 litres of ready-for-use fixing bath for automatic processing. When using G335 for manual processing, one set of concentrate should be diluted for up to 25 litres of ready-for-use solution.
X-Ray Film Processor Cleaning Products
Two innovative products help assure the intrinsic quality of the film processing. They are DEVCLEAN and FIXCLEAN, components of a universal cleaning solution for a clean processing system. The use of DEVCLEAN and FIXLCEAN will:
- Extend the useful life of the STRUCTURIX developer and fixer solutions
- Improve the developer system performance and reliability
- Ensure consistent, high quality images
- Reduce costs by extending your maintenance interval
DEVCLEAN is a highly efficient, two-part maintenance product for the thorough cleaning of the developing area of both processors and tanks along with the accessories used for manual development. Silver deposits and sludge on all parts dissolve effortlessly, completely and rapidly.
DEVCLEAN is offeed as a one processor service set. Each box contains one set of 5 litres part A and 5 litres part B to be diluted to 30 litres ready-for-use cleaning solution.
FIXCLEAN is a one-part, liquid cleaning product for regular maintenance of fixer, intermediate rinsing and wash water areas of processors. It can also be used to clean fixer tanks of chemical mixers such as the NDT MIXER, as well as manual film processing systems.
The FIXCLEAN cleaning compound is based on sodium hydroxide. It is highly efficient and contains no chlorine based substances.
FIXCLEAN advantages include:
FIXCLEAN is conveniently delivered in a quantity appropriate for one processor service. Each box contains one cleaning set or one 5 litre bottle of concentrate to be diluted to 50 litres of ready-for-use solution. Most fixer and wash water areas can be cleaned with one set of FIXCLEAN.
