    Looking for a 30x40 drum and processor

    I currently have a 30x40 drum processor made by Photographic Consolidated Industries. It consists of a base unit that rotates the drum back an forth like a JOBO drum processor and a drum that is the size of a small barrel for processing 30 x40 prints. I believe the machine was used by people making cibrachrome prints. The company no longer exists.

    I am looking for a backup one or the 30x40 drum that goes with it. Does anyone know where I can get one or have one they are willing to sell?

    Thanks for any considerations

    -Stephen

    Can't help you with that, I use sewer pipes with original end caps. Never seen one of these processors. Could you post some photos of it? Perhaps someone else might find it interesting too.

    Thanks

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Are you using it for film or print?
    Jobo made 30x40 drums for print.

    Bob, its prints. Are you sure that is not a 30x40 cm print/film size? I am looking for a 30x40 inch print size.

    Here's what I have:



    Jobo 4202
    PE pipe - max. 20x24 inches
    PE pipe - max. 33x44 inches

    So far I only did B&W in the two larger drums, as I would probably get uneven development with RA4 process. It works perfect in the 4202 drum, though. I was thinking of making a copy of the Jobo light tight cap with a cup from the end caps of the pipes. Would it work well for larger prints and larger quantities of chemicals?

    I am pretty darned sure Jobo makes 30x40 drums for jobo prints, a cibachrome printer in Toronto did it that way.

    Bob, below is the link that Sirius Glass provided me above. Note, that the 4202 drum does a 30x40, but it is in centimeters and not in inches. The size of my 30x40 drum is huge and looks more like a 55 gallon barrel and could never fit into a JOBO processor.

    Pipes were given to me at construction sites. They're made in Croatia, not very far from where I live, but I believe these are common and can be found anywhere in the world. The smaller one is 225 mm in diameter and the larger one 315 mm. Material is HDPE, and the caps, which are original and fit very tightly, are probably PVC.
