Industrial X-ray Processor
Quality, Features and Value
The OPTIMAX 2010-NDT is a fully
automatic industrial processor, with
a variable speed control that allows
precise settings from 90 seconds to
10 minutes. The OPTIMAX 2010-NDT
provides a state-of-the-art digital display
for monitoring and control of developer
temperature, dryer heat, replenishment,
process time, diagnostic messages, and
The OPTIMAX 2010-NDT is manufactured
by Protec in Germany in compliance with
DIN ISO 9001:2000, IEC, TUV, CE, CSA,
and UL quality standards. Protec is
known world-wide for their simple,
reliable, serviceable, and affordable industrial x-ray
The one-piece casing and the exclusive use of high quality components guarantee the highest
degree of reliability.
Best economic efficiency
The integrated stand-by mode reduces your water and energy consumption. The film detection
with a micro sensor enables intelligent and economic replenishment depending on the processed
film surface. Because of that the OPTIMAX® saves chemicals and provides a constant high
quality of your image.
No problem operation, perfect safety
With the simple control panel the tanks can easily be filled during the warm-up cycle, and the
developer temperature can be set. Acoustic and visual controls signal the readiness for
processing of the next film. The anti-crystallization and anti-oxidation programs in combination
with the continuous circulation of the chemicals and the thermostat for the developer ensure
constant high image quality.
Microprocessor controlled with 2 program memory.
Digital display and control for developer temperature,
replenishment, process time, diagnostics, and film counter.
