Deloper XTender Processes
all sizes of film: from intra-oral size, to Panoramic and Cephalometric (full skull size). High quality, archivable
radiographs are delivered dry in five minutes. Endodontic films may
be viewed wet (archival) after only two minutes 30 seconds. Has high
capacity external reservoirs for processor chemistry and
recirculation pump for automatic chemical recycling with extended
chemical life. Includes unit self-filling from developer and fixer
daylight loader (optional) eliminates the need for a darkroom. Films
are processed automatically on insertion of the film. Unique film
transport system ensures consistently excellent results. Electronic
management system shows machine status and help codes. Compact
dimensions, simple installation and minimal cervicing.
Convenience, reliability, peace of
The Velopex Xtender offers the ultimate in x-ray film processing
efficiency, reliability and convenience for the busy practice. The
Xtender package comprises a top specification processor with high
capacity auxiliary chemical reservoirs. An integrated recirculation
pump provides automatic chemical filling and recycling for optimum
quality radiographs, fast
The Xtender processor saves time and reduces patient recalls.
Dry-to-dry radiographs of high quality are available in just five
minutes, supporting the dentist's diagnosis while the patient is
still in the operatory. A preview facility allows endodontic films
to be viewed wet within 150 seconds (archival).
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.
The Velopex Xtender is very easy to use. Switch on, and the
processing chemicals are brought to working temperature
automatically. Post the films through the entry slot in any order
irrespective of size and the machine’s auto-sensor immediately
initiates the processing cycle, developing them dry-to-dry
An electronic management system provides at-a-glance information on
machine status. An indicator panel shows when the unit is warming
up, when it has reached operating temperature, and how long before a
posted film will appear. Audible signals advise that a film is
safely within the transport system and that the next film can be
inserted. Self-diagnostics warn of any fault in the machine’s
operation, displaying the relevant error codes to assist
After the final film has been processed, the Xtender goes into
stand-by, which is indicated by 3 horizontal dashes straight across
the display. Stand-by allows the Xtender to automatically maintain
the correct chemical temperature for immediate further use, thus
saving electrical power and water
Accepts all film sizes
The Xtender develops all sizes of x-ray film from intra-oral (22 x
33mm) to panoral and full skull format (240 x 300mm). The entry slot
incorporates a built-in guide for organising small sized films.
Deep processing tanks
Deep chemical tanks provide for a long film transport path, ensuring
generous contact with the processing solutions. The slim shape of
the tanks keeps the surface area small, reducing the effects of
chemical oxidation and evaporation.
The integral tanks are supplemented by auxiliary sealed reservoirs,
creating a high capacity system with ample developer and fixer for
heavy usage in the busiest office.
and easily installed
The compact, smartly-styled Xtender can be supplied with an optional
robust stand, which also provides convenient housing for the
auxiliary tanks and recirculation pump. Installation is simple,
requiring only a power socket. The unit can either be plumbed in
using a cold water supply and water outlet – or alternatively with a
closed-loop water reservoir independent of plumbing (a useful option
where plumbing on site presents a problem).
A specially designed triple pump connects the auxiliary reservoirs
with the processor, automatically topping up the processing
chemicals, recirculating the developer and fixer and gradually
recycling the entire volume of chemistry. Continuous recirculation
of the solutions within a sealed system extends their service life
and helps maintain effective processing performance. The pump can
additionally be used to recirculate a sealed wash-water supply,
avoiding the need for connection to mains water.
Auto-filling from reservoirs
Charging the machine is simplified by self-filling from reservoirs.
The recirculation system may also be used to simplify the cleaning
of tanks at the time of chemical change.
Daylight Loader - Optional
A convenient, rigid daylight loader can be supplied when required.
This eliminates the need for a darkroom with its associated risk of
film fogging, and relieves staff from working with chemicals in a
dark, confined space. The loader may be fitted later if the unit is
to be upgraded from darkroom-only use Converts a darkroom-only
machine into a daylight processor. When used ensure the Daylight
Loader sits level with your Xtender. The Xtender and Daylight Loader
must be fully supported by the same counter.
