17 Monitor Chemistry When finished working, dispose of any chemical that YOU DILUTE from concentrate: D-76 and TMAX film developers DEKTOL paper developer HCA tray solution for prints D-76 and TMAX are one-shot developers that cannot be reused. Developers can be contaminated easily so be sure to rinse beakers before measuring.

18 INDICATOR STOP BATH RETURN STOP for FILM process to gallon film containers located in sink. RETURN STOP for PAPER process to 5 gallon STOP container on shelf. EXHAUSTED STOP STOP BATH that turns PURPLE in color is fully exhausted. The stop can be safely discarded as it is no longer acidic.

20 FIXER NEVER pour FIXER down the drain, as used fixer pollutes the environment RETURN FIXER for FILM process to gallon film containers located in sink.

22 VERIFYING THE FRESHNESS OF EACH CHEMICAL FRESH FIX IS CLEAR AND ALWAYS LOOKS THE SAME EVEN WHEN IT IS EXHAUSTED. 1 ounces of FIX MUST BE TESTED WITH 2-3 HYPOCHECK DROPS. A WHITE PRECIPITATE FORMS INDICATING EXHAUSTED FIX (image on next slide).

24 EXHAUSTED FIX IS DISPOSED OF IN A 5 GALLON CONTAINER & IS NOT TO BE TOSSED DOWN THE DRAIN. WE MUST COLLECT IT IN OUR EXHAUSTED/DEAD FIX CONTAINERS SO THAT ENVIRONMENTAL SAFETY MAY TREAT THE FIX.

25 HCA REUSE solution from one gallon containers for FILM. DILUTE solution from concentrate for PRINT processing and discard after use. HCA acquires a STRONG PINK COLOR upon exhaustion--when it can be discarded. Hypo Clearing Agent facilitates removal of residual FIXER from the prints and film.

28 PLEASE REVIEW SPECIFICS FOR CHEMICAL FRESHNESS. D-76 IS USED ONLY ONCE TO DEVELOP. MIX IT WITH WATER AT THE RATIO OF 1 PART D-76 TO 1 PART WATER. TOSS AFTER USE. TMAX IS USED ONLY ONCE TO DEVELOP. MIX IT WITH WATER AT THE RATIO OF 1 PART TMAX TO 4 PARTS WATER. TOSS AFTER USE. STOP BATH THAT IS EXHAUSTED APPEARS PURPLE IN COLOR. REUSE STOP UNTIL THIS DISCOLORIZATION OCCURS. FIXER THAT IS EXHAUSTED FAILS THE HYPOCHECK TEST: TWO DROPS OF THE HYPOCHECK ADDED TO TWO OUNCES OF FIX WILL EITHER APPEAR CLEAR OR CAUSE A WHITE PRECIPITATE TO FORM. THE WHITE PRECIPITATE INDICATES AN EXHAUSTED FIX. FIXER IS RE-USED UNTIL IT FAILS THE HYPOCHECK TEST. HCA TURNS A DARK PINK COLOR WHEN EXHAUSTED. IT IS RE-USED UNTIL DISCOLORIZATION OCCURS. STOP AND HCA THAT IS EXHAUSTED CAN BE DISPOSED IN THE DRAIN. FIX MUST BE DISPOSED OF IN THE DEAD/EXHAUSTED FIX 5 GALLON CONTAINER AT THE FAR END OF THE LAB.
