All fine art photographers and printers know that washing is as important as any part of the picture taking and making process. Nova has succeeded in designing and manufacturing a range of archival washers that, with the minimum amount of water, wash your valuable prints properly.

The process of removing unused fixer and/or silver/thiosulphate compounds is mandatory to avoid print deterioration caused by insufficient washing. That is why we particularly like the Nova Washmaster Eco range.

Put simply, they wash prints quickly, safely and correctly. This 5-slot washer acts as five individual washers in one with no risk of cross-contamination. The spiralling vortex system of water jets gently but efficiently disperses the harmful salts over both sides of the print and then into an outlet weir. Typical washing times for a maximum size 12 x 16-inch fibre print is only 20 minutes if pre-washed in Hypo Clearing bath (wash-aid). Hard-water areas may even be quicker than this.

Constructed of robust, high grade acrylic, it has five independent running water wash slots PLUS a special single static wash aid slot which can serve 3 different purposes depending upon your needs...


* Wash Aid Slot - Its main purpose is to accommodate Wash Aid in its space-saving vertical construction and in turn, significantly reduce wash time by around 50%
* Rapid Pre-Wash Slot -This slot can also be converted to run as an isolated rapid pre-wash Slot using the optional Washmaster-ECO Upgrade kit
* 6th Additional Washing Slot - This slot can be converted to another running water washing slot with the additional purchase of our Washmaster-ECO Upgrade Kit.

    The five main washing slot sections of the unit have the benefits of...

* Rapid Fixer Removal - The first 5 minutes of washing are always the Golden Minutes - more fixer is removed per second at this point than at any other time
* Stop and Soak Total Water Dumping facility - by raising the daggar blade you can empty 90% of the water volume within just 1 minute, ensuring fast removal of fixer rich water - it also allows users to make use of the popular soak and dump wash method
* Independent Slots - Heavyweight textured inner divider panels are set into the base to ensure each slot maintains a high degree of isolation and prevention of print adhesion
* Unique Inlet Manifold Design -There is also a new pressurised inlet design further enhancing the Jet-Flow vortex agitation system synonymous with all Nova washers
* Environmentally friendly - Washmaster-ECO has the ability to store and wash up to 6 full size prints to the ANSI archival standard using less water than any other washer in the World
* Nova 20 years experience at the cutting edge of Washer manufacturing
