    I need to set up the Printo for a large run of Ilfochromes in the not-too-distant future and I don't remember the sequence for the various modules. Is this the correct sequence or is there a Wash in between one of the chemical steps?
    1-Developer
    2-Bleach
    3-Fixer
    4-Wash
    5-Wash
    6-Dry

    Thanks in advance.

    I've never used a printo (would kill for one mind,) but if I recall correctly with the P30 chemistry the only wash is the final one.

    The Printo manual I have, states for Cibachrome P 30 P, you need these modules.

    Intro.

    Tank + Energy Therm

    Tank + Energy Therm

    Tank + Energy Therm

    Tank + Energy Mot

    Tank + Energy Mot

    Dry + Dry Chrome.

    You can get away with one water wash (Tank + Energy Mot) but it's recommended for two washes.

    The Chrome double dryer is an extender which doubles the amount of time in the dry section. This is needed to dry the Cibachrome emulsion. I'm assuming Ilfochrome is identical, so to speak, to Cibachrome.

    Hi Renato,
    Here's a link about that processor for Ilfochrome:

    I use the ICP42 roller transport, which does the same method. DEV, BLX, FIX, no washes in between.
    Good luck on your new project, and have fun!
    Long live Ciba!
