The Paterson Super System 4 Multi-Reel 5 Tank is constructed from high-impact polystyrene that stands up to high volume use. This tank has no hidden parts, and is always easy to keep clean.

The Super System 4 Tanks are durable, easy to use, and provide consistent, even film development.

They feature a unique snap-in light trapping funnel for quick filling and emptying, to ensure even development and precise processing times.

Super System 4 Tanks offer a choice of agitation methods; use inversion agitation,  rotary agitation with the removable agitator rod supplied, or a combination of both.

Holds up to eight 35mm or 126 rolls, six 127 rolls, or five 120/220 rolls.

Note: these tanks are supplied without reels so that a system best suited to the users needs can be built up.

The thoughtful design of Super System 4 includes a funnel which locks in place to keep reels secure. And as an extra safety feature, the cap cannot be locked if the funnel is improperly seated.
Chemicals pour without splash, and solution quantities are permanently indicated on the bottom of every tank.
All parts are interchangeable.
The Super System 4 is simpler to load, faster to fill and easier to clean than any other tank.
A large diameter one piece lid and funnel which clips into place positively and securely, enabling the tank to be filled and emptied quickly.

      Comments about Paterson Multi-Reel 8 Tank (Super System 4):

      I have been using Paterson tanks for years now and generally think they are great. No problems with development and the chemistry leaves the tank very quickly. They do tend to crack over time do to normal wear and tear, but that's what happens when they are not metal. I am happy to replace them instead of using metal tanks. Very Nice

      Comments about Paterson Multi-Reel 8 Tank (Super System 4):

      I hesitated to try a tank so large but it worked fine and was great to process 8 35mm rolls at once (be careful not to load film with different developing times). I was also leary about tapping bubbles loose as the full tank weighs quite a bit. So far so good.

        Comments about Paterson Multi-Reel 8 Tank (Super System 4):

        I just used my 8 reel tank for the first time yesterday. It was great being able to develop multiple rolls of film...what a time saver. Only a word of caution and this is on the side of human error....if you are processing less than the number of reels for the tank...use full amounts of product or make sure your reels are pushed all the way down to the bottom of the tank. :O)
