    Processor Clean II Recipe?

    Hey APUG,
    I used up my last bag of Processor Clean II Cleaning my Jobo Autolab 1500 yesterday and it worked wonders! But when I went to purchase more it seems as tho it is no longer in production, Does anyone know something that will work as well or like it? Or a way to make it myself? Thanks!

    The UK company of NOVA market a cleaner which I use on my Nova deep tank processors they call it 'Tar-Buster'. It does work quite well but to use it they recommend it is used in a well ventilated area.

    I have had good luck with a very filthy as it first came to me Fuji CP31.
    I cleaned it with multple stewings with dilute toilet bowl cleaner, a few water rinses, and then finally a 1:20 dilutiion of a TC-1 tray cleaner I think is it's name, and maybe by edwal - I am not at the darkroom to look at the bottle.

    It is a mixture of sulfamic acid and a chromate salt of some ilk- orange yellow. It does work well though, without a need to scrub, like the dilute toilet bowl cleaner sometimes does.
    It keeps well too- I have been using the same 2L for the last 3 or so years, and it still cleans up the processor.
    I just decant off the supernatant and pour out the cruddied that have seltled to the bottom of the jug to re use it.
    my real name, imagine that.
