Paterson PTP114 Overview

The Paterson Super System 4 - 35mm 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.

The Paterson 35mm tank takes a single 35mm film.

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.

Does this include a funnel and agitation tube?
Asked by: Brian
No funnel. The agitation tube you are referring to is included. I throw them away, immediately, as proper aviation requires inverting the tank.

I know it says that this (Paterson 35mm) tank will take a single 35mm but will it also take a single 120?
Asked by: Lawrence M.
No.If you want to develop for 120 film, check the Paterson Universal Tank with Two Reels (Super System 4) On that one you can adjust the reel height to accomodate the 120 film.

So the reel says 290 ml? Can someone break down how much developer to water I use?
Asked by: Anonymous
It depends which developer you use and what the ratio is. For example, I use Rodinal at 1+50. 290mL / (50+1) = 5.68mL290mL - 5.68mL = 284.32mLSame principles applie to other developers and ratios.
