High quality processing of all intra-oral dental films. The Sprint is the smallest and most basic x-ray film processor in our range. Wall mountable or free standing and incorporating the daylight loader it can sit almost anywhere in the dental office. Almost silent in operation it delivers x-ray film rapidly but only from dry to wet. The film will need to be left to dry before storage. A special fast cycle will deliver the film for endo purposes in as little as 60 seconds non-archivable, Standard cycle 150 seconds. The Sprint has auto start at feeding in the film, also audible signals on film entry and film exit.
Sprint is ideal for the low volume user and a simple-to-use back-up unit for the digital office when a high quality diagnostic x-ray film is required.
High quality radiographs, fast
The Velopex Sprint delivers fully developed and fixed films for viewing wet in just two minutes, enabling dentist and patient to benefit from the rapid availability of radiographs of high diagnostic quality.
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.
Operation is very easy, with no user intervention between loading the undeveloped film into the machine and receiving the processed radiograph. Films are loaded via the built-in daylight loader and are carried through the developer and fixer tanks. Emerging into an external water wash-tank fitted with a convenient film retrieval basket, they are ready for immediate viewing. After further rinsing, a film can then be dried and archived.
Controlled processing conditions
In standard form, the Sprint’s tanks are fitted with individual immersion heaters that maintain the chemicals at constant temperature. The Sprint is also available in an unheated version which uses a “time temperature” feedback system to adjust processing speed to the temperature of the chemistry, i.e. in unheated conditions the processing time will automatically adjust itself to the time required for best results.
Ultra-compact and readily wall-mountable
The Velopex Sprint saves space as well as time. Daylight operation eliminates the need for a darkroom. This highly compact unit can be free standing or wall-mounted, and its smart styling and near-silent operation make it ideal for chair-side use.
No plumbing-in is required. Simply fill the developer and fixer tanks and water-wash bath, then plug into a power socket.
The Velopex Sprint can remain on standby for use throughout the day. The Sprint allows continuous processing of all sizes of intra-oral x-ray film, including occlusal, and films may be loaded in any order.
Built-in film storage
The Sprint is thoughtfully equipped with an integral film store and dispenser for unexposed size 2 x-ray films.
Easy cleaning and maintenance
The chemical tanks slide out in seconds for cleaning and replenishing, and the entire machine is engineered for long life, maximum reliability and simple user servicing. In the unlikely event of a problem with the film transport system, a module can be quickly and easily replaced at modest cost.
