What I was going to do was Dev > Fix > Rinse/Water Holding bath.

From the water holding bath I can take the print to my Archival Washer.

I know I am going to kill off the Fix at a quite a rate – but that’s OK

Should I add some Stop Bath (acetic acid) to the Fix (Ilford Hypam) to help resist the alkali of the Dev ?

Alternatives anyone?

I can't advise adding acid to your fix, but you could consider using your washer to rinse and stop before the fix step, just turn it over before you go to washing.
