    Durst labator 138 dichroic head

    Does anyone out there know what power rating the have lamps that were originally supplied with the Dusrst labator 138? I have just used mine (second hand) for t he first time. It has 2 x 1000W lamps. The head gets VERY hot for anything over 20 sec. (yes the fan is running). Either this is normal or I am wondering if the y are supposed to be 500W instead..

    Secondly i heard from an ilford rep here in Aus that leaking rollers on a CAP 40 processor will cause contamination. I agree with him but looking at the design the gap between rollers would have to be quite big before this happens, as the j oin betwwen the rollers is above the height of the chemical....any contamination I would think would just be the usual carryover. any experiences someone has ha d would be great to hear from.

    I have the same Durst printer setup and it uses the 1000W tubes. How hot does the head get? Mine gets good and warm but is still touchable.

    Phil,

    there have been three different color heads for the L138. CLS 300, CLS 301 and CLS 1000. The former ones had an external fan unit. You must connect the hoses in the right order. Check whether your fan unit is equipped with a dust filter (should be). You may need a new filter. Make a test run without filter. It sould not get that hot within 30 Seconds.

    Yes, it's good to be specific. My head is the CLS300.
