Title (EN) PACKAGING
(FR) CONDITIONNEMENT
Abstract:
(EN) In photographic processing, it is known to add replenishers at required intervals to the processing solutions to replace the chemicals which have been removed by the treatment processes. Replenishers are normally measured and dispensed in liquid form, and the dispensing procedure can be both inaccurate and time consuming. Described herein are a package, a method and apparatus for dispensing predetermined measured amounts of replenisher chemicals. The package comprises an upper foil (4) and a lower foil (6) between which a chemical component (2) is retained. The upper foil (4) is stronger than the lower foil (6) and allows the component (2) to be ejected using pressure applied to the surface of the upper foil (4). Each component (2) is measured out in quantities according particular replenishment requirements, and can be in solid, liquid or paste form. This removes the need to measure and dispense chemicals every time the processing solutions need to be replenished.
(FR) Dans le développement photographique, on sait qu'il faut ajouter des révélateurs à des intervalles requis aux solutions de traitement, afin de remplacer les agents chimiques ayant été éliminés par les procédés de traitement. Les révélateurs sont normalement mesurés et distribués sous forme liquide, et la procédure de distribution peut être à la fois imprécise et longue. On décrit ici un conditionnement, un procédé et un appareil de distribution de quantités mesurées prédéterminées d'agents chimiques révélateurs. Le conditionnement comprend une feuille supérieure (4) ainsi qu'une feuille inférieure (6) entre lesquelles un composant chimique (2) est retenu. La feuille supérieure (4) est plus résistante que la feuille inférieure (6), et permet l'éjection du composant (2) à l'aide d'une pression appliquée sur la surface de ladite feuille supérieure (4). Chaque composant est dosé en quantités correspondant aux besoins particuliers en addition de révélateur, et peut se présenter sous forme solide, liquide ou de pâte. Ce conditionnement élimine la nécessité de mesurer et de distribuer des agents chimiques à chaque fois qu'il faut régénérer les solutions de traitement.
