    Print washer recommendation

    Can someone suggest a brand of print washer suitable for use in a college darkr oom? I am in the process of replacing two old, rather used Arkay washers. Maximu m size prints 8x10. Larger prints are tray washed using siphon. About 75-90 stu dents per semester. Thanks in advance. Bob

    11x14 Summitek Cascade washer. It requires very low water flow and will permit students to add prints downstream without contaminating those already in the washer. I'm extremely pleased with mine; no connection with the company except as a customer.

    Take a look at the EcoWash line from Oriental/Cachet. I have the 8- 1/2" x 11" model and really like it. They are available from B&H for about $300. It is a very simple design that has a small footprint and is very efficient with wash water. It also allows the addition of downstream prints.

    I use the Jobo Nova 8x10 washer. It costs $100. I am happy with it.

    Bob, Check out the Nova range of washers. I'm very pleased with the archival washer (16x20). Regards Paul
