Blix replenishmen rates for RA-4 tray processed

  1. Hey everyone. I am getting conflicting messages about the necessary rate of
    replenishment with RA-4. IIRC, Kodak's Z-130 manual has something like 1 fl.
    oz. per qt. per 80 sq. in. of paper, the same as the developer replen rates. I
    can't verify for sure as I don't have Adobe Acrobat Reader on this machine
    (56K, be patient please! ;-) ) and the home connection is down. Several color
    printers I know have told me that that number is far too much and that I should
    simply test blix with exposed and developed strips of B&W paper until the
    clearing time goes down to low. I don't find that method to be archivally or
    practically sound, so if someone could give me a conservative starting point
    (very important, as this is for doing finished prints for a wedding album), I'd
    appreciate it.

    Also, how many replen. cycles can RA-4 dev. and blix take before it is best to
    just dump them and mix up another qt. of soln? I am using the 10L RA-RT kits.

    Regards,

    ~Karl
     
  2. AM I THE LAST PERSON ON EARTH (OR AT LEAST ON PHOTO.NET) THAT TRAY PROCESSES
    COLOR PAPER?!
