Quality, commitment, and professionalism have made JOBO one of the leading brands in the photographic industry since 1923. JOBO tanks and products have become legendary and JOBO's innovations set the standard for darkroom processing.
The Jobo CPE-3 Processor is a motor-driven processor for all film processes (B&W, C41, E6) and formats from 35mm up to 4x5 sheet film. JOBO tanks or drums are attached to the processor and automatically rotated in both directions for optimal and even development. This precise rotation processing offers consistent results while consuming less chemistry compared to manual inversion processing. The JOBO CPE-3 processor requires significantly less space and budget than its big brother, the CPP-3.
PRECISE TEMPERATURE CONTROL
Both the chemicals and the developing drum are stored in the same thermostatically controlled 9 liter water-jacketed bath. The temperature can be set continuously from 20°C to 40°C (+/- 0.2°C). A red control lamp indicates when the heating is active. All bottles and graduates lock into place and are kept from floating, providing an even water level and optimal temperature control throughout the entire process.
SIMPLE HANDLING WITH THE INCLUDED LIFT
With the JOBO Lift the attaching and removing of the tank for emptying and refilling is not necessary any more! No more wet hands: Chemicals are poured while the drum is rotating, and used chemicals can be easily collected for reuse by pushing a lever. Processing times are maintained and films are soaked evenly. All your available JOBO tanks ma be used by simply pressing a cog onto the lid of the tank.
For rotary processing, each tank must be fitted with a magnet or cog. To use a tank on the processor, without the JOBO Lift attached, a magnet must be mounted on the bottom. You must have a cog installed on a tank or drum lid to use with the JOBO Lift attached. Some tanks and drums come with a magnet or cog already installed, some do not. Magnets and cogs can be purchased separately if your tank does not include them.
