Spacesaving- significantly less than tray systems or cascade washers
Reduced wash times up to 50% - using Hypo Clear/Washaid in the special hypo clearing slot cuts wash times by up to 50% , saving time and water
Archival Quality - Washes all fibre based papers to the ANSI standard of archival stability
Textured finish separators - to minimise print adhesion - Each slot separator has textured surfaces which prevent print adhesion to the slot walls and allow the water to flow in vortex currents across both sides of the print -
Easy Maintenance - The separators are easy to remove for cleaning purposes and also allowing the unit to be used for film washing
Easy Plumbing - Nova inlet hose and connector (1.5 metre) as well as outlet hose (1 metre) are supplied as standard and mean that its not necessary to stand the unit in a sink - any flat surface near your waste outlet is satisfactory
Draining - The drain taps at the base allow you to completely empty the washer when not in use
Low water usage through innovative design makes the Academy an effective investment in any professional darkroom whilst its compact design ensures it will fit into even the smallest of spaces, in the knowledge that true archival permanence can be achieved.
Every washer is supplied with the required inlet and outlet hoses, Nova print clip (for suspension of smaller print sizes), Print retrieval blade for withdrawal of small prints from the washer without damage.
