    Through the joys of eBay I have won some Pro-Clean Systems cleaner for, well, minilabs. This stuff is produced by Photosol as a Gelatine and Silver remover for processors dev tank. My plan of action is to use it on a Nova Processor to clean it of my C41 chemicals gunk. What's the thoughts on this, anyone used this stuff on a Nova before? Just it cost me 0.99 pence for 20 litres and the official Nova stuff is £12 a litre

    Hi,
    This msds seems to be what you have. No dichromate, but you might contact Nova and ask in what concentration nitric acid would safe to use in your processor. FWIW all the labs I have worked at use Lysol toilet bowl cleaner as a cheap way to clean up gucky racks. Care should be taken with any industrial solution. Note the following warning from the above msds:
    Good luck with your bargain.
    Celac.

    Chucked the rest after having to repair my processor.
