    Hello Ilford! What is this Print Processor?

    I've got the opportunity to rescue an Ilford Print Processor which is making its way to the tip.

    It looks like this:



    and here's a second one



    Assuming it works, does anyone know what it is and whether it's worth salvaging? I'm assuming it's a more commercial tool rather than something for low output as I do but it would go in the communal darkroom that myself and a couple of friends are currently putting together.

    Cheers!

    Dear Welly,

    Its either an ILFOSPEED 2001 processor or a 2240 processor ( later model ) they cost £ 15,000 + 20 years ago!

    We make the chemicals for it, they were high capacity RC processors, some had roll attachments but I do not think yours has.

    They were massively over-engineered and incredibly robust.

    Question is would you have the throuput to keep the chemistry on song and would it be economic to run ?

    No idea where you are, Welly but if the three of you don't do enough printing to make it economical you could always offer to do printing for a local lab that has to subject its customers to non-neutral RA4 prints from trad or chromogenic B&W negs or give others a chance to join your group.

    Thanks Simon! We've decided to pass on it. I think it's overkill for what we'll ever use it for and certainly we don't have the resources to fill it with chemicals
