Fujifilm Minilab 235B Chemicals

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

I'm looking to buy a Fujifilm Minilab 235B and I'm not quite sure what chemicals I'll need for it + if there are certain brands that I should be looking for? 

I'm pretty new to all this + looking to start a small lab. So would probably need to buy larger amounts of chemicals too.

Any info would be greatly appreciated! 

Thanks 

Chris

It is big question what he has. He wrote "minilab" . No minilabs with 235 . Minilab models are SFA232 (PP720W), or SFA238 (PP728A, PP728V, PP728W) . These models are very old.

If it is printer - processor model then might be Fuji PP252 . This model older, than previous.

If he really has film processor ( not minilab ) then can be FP232B. On these film processors can be two processes - CN16Q, or CN16L ( depends on software on EPROM and processor ) . Chemicals depend which process is there.

Here is film processor ( not minilab, as you wrote ) . Seller wrote wrong model. Probably listing entered someone from office, who do not know, what sell here. It is hard to believe, that someone, who refurbished FP232B could write model wrong.
As I wrote before on FP232B can be two processes - CN16Q, or CN16L ( depends on software on EPROM and processor ) . Chemicals depend which process is there. No information on Ebay.  Also on FP232B can be different circulation pumps - old type ( big black unit ) or pumps connected separately.  Ask seller. about that. 
Film processor is quite old. I think you can find some film processor locally. Ask James ( Haymarket, New South Wales ) . Maybe he has anything.

Yeah I also thought it was strange he wrote the the model wrong considering he refurbished the machine. He wrote me back telling me it works on the CN-16L Process. I've been attempting to find a film processor locally but not having much luck. Did you have the details for James for me to contact him? Thanks for for the help!

Probably information on Ebay entered some lady from office, who do not understand about film processor. I see seller is from Bruino ( Italy ) , so this film processor sells D-Lab Electronic LTD . This company is from this town.

CN16L is newer process. Probably film processor has new model circulation pumps ( separate pumps instead pump unit ) .

On film processors with CN-16L when CD tank is 10 liters can be used :
If daily processed 25 135-24 frame films - can be used standard CN-16L chemicals. CD replenishment rate - 21 ml/135-24 . N2R and N3R replenishment standard ( 5 and 10 ) 
If daily processed 15 135-24 frame films - can be used CN-16Q developer. All other chemicals leave the same. CD replenishment rate - 45 ml/135-24. N2R and N3R replenishment increased ( to 10 and 34 ) 
If daily processed 3 135-24 frame films - use EnviroNeg Developer Replenisher 60 AC developer. All other chemicals leave the same. CD replenishment rate - 60 ml/135-24, temperature - 37.8 . N2R and N3R replenishment increased ( to 10 and 34 ) 
Choose, what is the best for you.

It is strange, that you are from Australia and do not know local companies. James is from Global Imaging Pty ( Haymarket, New South Wales, Australia ) .
