Includes unit self-filling from developer and fixer reservoirs.

Easy-to-use daylight loader (optional) eliminates the need for a darkroom. Films are processed automatically on insertion of the film. Unique film transport system ensures consistently excellent results. Electronic management system shows machine status and help codes. Compact dimensions, simple installation and minimal servicing.

Convenience, reliability, peace of mind
The Velopex Xtender offers the ultimate in x-ray film processing efficiency, reliability and convenience for the busy practice. The Xtender package comprises a top specification processor with high capacity auxiliary chemical reservoirs. An integrated recirculation pump provides automatic chemical filling and recycling for optimum chemical life.

High quality radiographs, fast
The Xtender processor saves time and reduces patient recalls. Dry-to-dry radiographs of high quality are available in just five minutes, supporting the dentist's diagnosis while the patient is still in the operatory. A preview facility allows endodontic films to be viewed wet within 150 seconds (archival).

Unique film transport system
The key to the processor’s performance and efficiency is the unique Velopex film transport system, which holds each x-ray film stationary and gently protected between two continuous permeable belts. This well-proven system virtually eliminates the risk of film loss and ensures uniform exposure of the film to the chemicals for consistently excellent results.

Automatic processing
The Velopex Xtender is very easy to use. Switch on, and the processing chemicals are brought to working temperature automatically. Post the films through the entry slot in any order irrespective of size and the machine’s auto-sensor immediately initiates the processing cycle, developing them dry-to-dry automatically.

Electronic machine management
An electronic management system provides at-a-glance information on machine status. An indicator panel shows when the unit is warming up, when it has reached operating temperature, and how long before a posted film will appear. Audible signals advise that a film is safely within the transport system and that the next film can be inserted. Self-diagnostics warn of any fault in the machine’s operation, displaying the relevant error codes to assist rectification.

Stand-by mode
After the final film has been processed, the Xtender goes into stand-by, which is indicated by 3 horizontal dashes straight across the display. Stand-by allows the Xtender to automatically maintain the correct chemical temperature for immediate further use, thus saving electrical power and water.

Accepts all film sizes
The Xtender develops all sizes of x-ray film from intra-oral (22 x 33mm) to panoral and full skull format (240 x 300mm). The entry slot incorporates a built-in guide for organising small sized films.

Daylight operation
A convenient, rigid daylight loader can be supplied when required. This eliminates the need for a darkroom with its associated risk of film fogging, and relieves staff from working with chemicals in a dark, confined space. The loader may be fitted later if the unit is to be upgraded from darkroom-only use.

Deep processing tanks
Deep chemical tanks provide for a long film transport path, ensuring generous contact with the processing solutions. The slim shape of the tanks keeps the surface area small, reducing the effects of chemical oxidation and evaporation.

High capacity reservoirs
The integral tanks are supplemented by auxiliary sealed reservoirs, creating a high capacity system with ample developer and fixer for heavy usage in the busiest office.

Compact and easily installed
The compact, smartly-styled Xtender can be supplied with an optional robust stand, which also provides convenient housing for the auxiliary tanks and recirculation pump. Installation is simple, requiring only a power socket. The unit can either be plumbed in using a cold water supply and water outlet – or alternatively with a closed-loop water reservoir independent of plumbing (a useful option where plumbing on site presents a problem).

Chemical recirculation
A specially designed triple pump connects the auxiliary reservoirs with the processor, automatically topping up the processing chemicals, recirculating the developer and fixer and gradually recycling the entire volume of chemistry. Continuous recirculation of the solutions within a sealed system extends their service life and helps maintain effective processing performance. The pump can additionally be used to recirculate a sealed wash-water supply, avoiding the need for connection to mains water.

Auto-filling from reservoirs
Charging the machine is simplified by self-filling from reservoirs. The recirculation system may also be used to simplify the cleaning of tanks at the time of chemical change.

Accessories
Daylight loader: Converts a darkroom-only machine into a daylight processor

DAYLIGHT LOADER OPTIONAL - When used ensure the Daylight Loader sits level with your Xtender. The Xtender and Daylight Loader must be fully supported by the same counter.

Vischeck Quality Control

Applications

  • Vischeck is an intelligent quality control system, designed to make x-ray film quality and film processor management simple and easy
  • Uses a pre-exposed x-ray film test strip to assess chemical condition and processor operation
  • Electronic reader simply indicates fault conditions
  • Shows when the processing chemicals require changing
  • Simple to use without special training
  • Helps avoid poor quality imaging and time-wasting and embarrassing retakes
  • An important contribution to good practice management
Vischeck is an intelligent quality control system, designed to make managing x-ray film quality and film processor management simple and easy.

The quality control challenge
For quality and consistency in film-based imaging, an x-ray film processor must be operating to its full potential.  Until now, the usual way of gauging the efficiency of a processor and the condition of its chemistry has been by subjective assessment of the processed films.  The difficulty of identifying problems such as exhausted chemicals or incorrect temperature etc. can lead to poor quality images of limited diagnostic value.

The Vischeck solution
The Vischeck quality control system transforms the management of processor condition and film quality.  A simple procedure, requiring no special training, provides an accurate indication of a processor’s status and its ability to deliver a satisfactory result.  It merely involves opening a Vischeck pre-exposed test strip in the processor’s daylight loader or in a darkroom, then feeding it into the processor in the same way as you would a normal x-ray film.  On completion of the processing cycle, the developed test strip is inserted into the electronic reader, and an indicator light signals whether the machine is currently able to process films to a high diagnostic standard.

Effective processing control  
Various fault conditions are highlighted via Vischeck.  The most common reason for poor quality x-ray films is exhausted chemistry, and Vischeck can show precisely when it is time for the chemicals to be changed.

The reader also detects fogging on the film base caused by over-long or unsuitable storage, helps identify temperature problems in the processor, and assists in determining whether x-ray problems are processor based, stem from the x-ray unit itself or are simply the result of film under- or over-exposure.

A valuable tool for good practice
The Vischeck system takes the guesswork out of imaging quality control, helps ensure that x-ray results are accurate every time and avoids the need for tiresome retakes, and is also available separately from your usual supplier.
