Paper Abstract

Investigation of the factors involved in rapid processing at elevated temperatures has led to new films and chemical solutions which are specially designed for very rapid processing of cathode-ray tube recordings. An experimental, laboratory model of a complete, rapid processing system was constructed in order t o study various aspects of the problem. By using special cathode-ray-tube recording films, together with specially formulated developer and fixer, it was possible to demonstrate useful development in less than 2 sec. at 130°F, and clearing in less than 2 sec., at the same temperature. With rinsing and drying requiring 2 sec. each, a processing system is shown to produce rinsed, dried film of high quality in a total time of less than 8 sec.
