    We have a thermal system, but have a look at the developer you are using. We had major hassles with the first developer with staining the bath, and build up in the pipes. After switching no more build up and cleaning takes half the time.

    It is difficult to clean the tank unless you clean it frequently. Maybe you could use some acids to remove developer adhered to the tank. That's what we do to our processor.

    cleaning rollers

    alliswell, we have had good results with antistatic cleaning liquid, well on the bottle says Kruse k-1000. Does a brillant job dissolving the polymer glaze from the rubber rollers, doesn't seem to harm the rubber in any way and doesn't leave any sort of residue. Use th minimum amount to soak a cotton rag, apply moderate force when rubbing then clean with ipa sparingly just to be sure the solvent didn't soak the rubber pores. I guess any antistatic fluid will do, not only Kruse.
    Hope it helps.

    I suggest the same way. Once I used the Drain Cleaner available in hardware store. Somewhere it is called liquid plumber.

    Worked for me.

    Question Violet CTP Systems Cleaner?

    One of my friend is using a Rip-It (Xante) VM-4 with Graphline Violet plates and chemistry. We have the Printrunner P24 Processor. Was wondering what systems cleaner others who have violet chemistry are using? Any procedural suggestions would be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Preface: following is based on an LP68 Ultra pumped with L5000B Ultra Developer / L5300B Ultra Finisher. READ YOUR OWN MSDS!

    I'll second awerticulin69;21654 with ALTEC; I have used this to de-scum developer tanks for several years with good results. It is in current manufacture and available from many print suppliers. Pitman carriers it as K78MP000 @ $286/10L (priced today).

    In a pinch I have also used ProCam's NS5 Neutralizer which is a salic acid solution typically found in their post-process chemical treatment systems. If you have large brined-on or hard mineral-like deposits, you might use this (sparingly) with a scraper.

    Probably the best method is regular preventative maintenance and cleaning. In volume shops you will clean every week in addition to laser care and optics. Keeping on regular schedule can be a pain and is a shit job, but is completely worth avoiding the downtime that comes with repairing corroded, rusted, broken hardware and/or troubleshooting blinding, poor-bind, washout or funky wave-gain issues. Hire an intern :]

    With any chemically-aided cleaning be very careful of fumes, wear a mask/goggles and be well ventilated! Make sure not to get any of the acid-based etchers/cleaners on the metal drive shafts or gearing unless you want to rust-bust for days. Always test chemistry reactions first!
