As with all equipment, routine maintenance is crucial to keep your x-ray processor running well.
This month we’re covering basic routine maintenance for automatic x-ray processors. We’re including more generalized information on maintenance, so there will be some variation for specific makes and models of processor. Consult your owner’s manual for the specifics of your processor. As always, you can also feel free to consult with our Tech Support staff for information applicable to the processor you use.
For roller-type processors, use only a sponge or soft-bristled brush for cleaning. Abrasives or hard bristled brushes can damage the rollers.
Use color-coded cleaning supplies to avoid contaminating chemistry. An ammonia-like odor is a sign of contaminated chemistry.
Be observant. Watch and listen to a complete cycle at least once a day. Make certain all the appropriate indicators illuminate when appropriate. Strange noises or erratic performance can be the first sign of a problem.
Always lift transports up and to the side to avoid dripping chemistry into the wrong compartment/tray. Likewise, when adding chemistry poor slowly to avoid splashing.
Consult your owner’s manual for precautions specific to your make and model of processor.
