I've just answered a private mail that reports the reuse times for an old Tetenal kit. The reuse times are given for each "quarter" of capacity. Considering that using 140ml if I used the chemistry 3 times I would develop 21 rolls per litre, which is beyond normal specification of 18 rolls per litre, I consider 2 treatments per bath. I will develop 2 x 7 rolls per litre. That's 14 rolls per litre which is in the lower half of the 12 - 20 of capacity per litre declared by compard. That also leaves me some room for the developing of 400 ISO and faster film.

Considering exhaustion, I came out with the following times: first pass 3:23 (just like suggested by Polyglot), second pass 3:53. Those are the averages for the first and second quarter of exhaustion, and the third and fourth quarter of exhaustion. Actually those times might be shortened a little bit as I don't really arrive to 4/4 of exhaustion, making only 14 rolls per litre.

If considering a 10% reduction for rotative processing, that would become 3:02 first pass and 3:29 for the second pass, but I don't consider the 10% reduction when I make E-6 and I see that also compard does not take this into account.

So the first rolls will be at 3:23 first pass, 3:53 second pass, and from there I'll see what modification to apply. I'll post here all the timings I find. Or for what said above I will trim a bit, so 3:15 canonical and 3:45 which are more "round" numbers to remember.

Certainly the small details (dead times, pouring, etc) will have an impact and so I will not worry more about times until I see the results and reason from that.

Thanks a lot
