FXSYS Particle Transfer Rollers for scanners, processors and bench-based cleaning

fxsys poster

flashscan8.us is happy to have been named the master distributor for the well-regarded FXSYS Particle Transfer Rollers, (until 2010 made by San Lab Systems)

These specially finished, premium PTRs have been the chosen PTR in post production facilities and with major film scanner manufacturers world-wide.

They are available in two diameters and two widths:  1.5″ and 3″ diameter and 35mm and 70mm widths

“FXSYS PTRs  are made in controlled environment with a Durometer range of 28-34, which is ideal for use with motion picture film,” FXSYS co-founder and former marketing director Ganesh Sankar advised us when flashscan8.us became the US distributor in 2010. “Testing confirms that,” he told us.

Controlled  temperature and humidity during manufacture eliminates bubbles, and avoids too hard a surface.

“If too hard, it won’t pick up as much. Too soft, it tends to shred at the ends,” Sankar said. 

Several customers using another brand reported shredding to the FXSYS distributor in the US during conversations in Autumn, 2010.

fxsys Green 1.5" x 35mm PTR

fxsys Green Micromat™ Particle Transfer Roller showing diamond-etched microgrooved surface which has what are like tiny tire treads that pick up and hold particulate matter.

“The FXSYS diamond-etched MicroMat™ Microgrooved PTR’s pick up a noticeably greater amount of particulate matter than plain PTRs from a well known competitor,” Sankar reported.

“The grooves act like tire treads do in mud and snow.”

Testing by SanLab in 2004 verified the observation. A staff chemist ran side by side comparisons, Sankar says.

“The chemist applied a uniform amount of dust to a wide, slightly sticky tape, then did an equal number of rolls over separate parts of the the tape using the Microgrooved MicroMat™ PTR’s and the competing PTR,” Sankar said. 

“By magnifying the surface hundreds of times, the chemist was able to count number of particles in an area of each PTR. The Microgrooved PTRs had noticeably more to count, up to 60% more particles.

Tacky Red™ PTRs have special applications:

fxsys Tacky Red™ PTRs

fxsys Tacky Red™ Particle Transfer Rollers which pick up more particle matter than the slightly harder MicroMat™ PTR

They were designed to meet customers’ requests.

The FXSYS Tacky Red™ PTR has a softer durometer reading between 20-24. The softer, ungrooved tacky surface picks up even more material than the MicroMat™ Microgrooved PTR’s and is usable until its covered with undesirable material.

Not for high-speed use.

January, 2015: FXSYS Announces new MicroMat™ Microgrooved Tacky Red™ PTR available for testing. Contact us for details and to obtain a four-PTR set of 1.5″ x 35mm at reduced cost.  3″ x 35mm are also available.

All FXSYS PTRs are anti-static: Surface resistance has been reduced to where the Micromat™PTR conducts static electricity away from the film to control static buildup during use.

Lifespan of the PTR’s depends on film volume: FXSYS estimates the MicroMat™ PTRs will remove dust, dirt and lint from film for a period of three to four months of constant use, if cleaned properly and regularly.

The Tacky Red™ PTRs can be washed perhaps five times and then need to be replaced.  

FXSYS PTR’s are easy to clean (See instructions below)

Multiple ways to use FXSYS PTRs:

  • Film labs use them in cleaning machines and processors.
  • Archival film restorers use a pair between rewinds to clean film without using a machine.
  • Film transfer houses and in-house facilities use them on their telecines, scanners
  • Theaters and screening rooms use them on projectors during projection
  • Film Inspection Tables can use them during inspection

Users over the years include Technicolor, Deluxe, Ascent Media Group‘s post facilities in New York and Los Angeles, Warner Bros., NBC/UniversalHigh Technology Video/Illuminate and New Wave Entertainment all in Los Angeles, Showperfect, Inc., Moorpark, California, NFL Films, Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, DuArt Film and Video, New York City, The Filmworkers Clubs in Chicago, Dallas and Nashville, NASA Johnson Space Center, Houston, Texas, AnalogRetentive, Richmond, Virginia, Alaska Film Archives, Fairbanks, Continental Film and Video, Orlando, Florida, Crawford Communications, Atlanta, Georgia, Chapman University, Orange, California, ImagineIt LLC, Chandler, Arizona, Tailor Made Transfers, Feasterville, Pennsylvania, Mystic Seaport, Mystic, Connecticut, Visible Sprockets, UK and its film scanning and lab customers in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia

Equipment makers MWA Nova, Digital Film Technology (DFT Scanity, Spirit) Digital Vision (GoldenEye including 70mm,) Kinetta and others include FXSYS PTR’s on systems because of the quality.

fxsys PTR colors

FXSYS PTRs can be made in many colors

FXSYS PTR’s are available in many colors, including blue, green, purple (black) yellow and orange, subject to stock on hand or by special order.

• All colors (except Tacky Red™) are identical in function, differing only by their color.

• Many customers use different colors to identify different PTR Sets, use different colors for different film formats or simply have a color preference.

Buffers for Film Cleaning Machines

FXSYS Soft Nap Buffers for film cleaning machines

FXSYS also supplies Lint-Free film cleaning machine buffers. 

These Rotary Application Buffers are used to polish the film after immersion cleaning in machines like RTI’s Lipsner-Smith ultrasonic and San Lab Systems / FXSYS Prista film cleaners.

Dimensions 1.5″ diameter x 2.0 ” wide x 1.5 ” thick (3.81 cm x 5.08cm x 1.27cm)

 • Lint Free • Extra soft nap • Durable

FXSYS Ultra Precision rollers and related bearings for telecine tightwind accessories are also available.

PTR Cleaning Instructions:

Palmolive Dishwashing Detergent for cleaning PTRs

• Put two to four drops of ordinary Palmolive® brand  hand dish-cleaning detergent in a liter of room temperature or cold water.

• Dip or soak the PTRs in the water for a short time.

• Then thoroughly clean the surface by rubbing with your hands and the detergent water. 

• Allow to air-dry in a particle-free environment and use.

FXSYS recommends Palmolive® detergent (Original) like Madge used in the 1960s-70s Palmolive TV commercials.

• Use slightly more detergent if the water is “hard”.

• Do not use dishwasher detergent!

• Do not use hot water as it can cause PTR’s to become very sticky and cause excessive adhesion and potential damage to the film.

• Do not use packaging (packing) or other tapes to clean a PTR! Packaging tape will transfer some of its adhesives to the PTR and cause excessive adhesion of the film to the PTR, to the film and attract dust or dirt where you don’t want it.

• Simply wash the PTR’s and allow them to dry thoroughly before re-installation.

• If cleaned properly, PTR’s should roll off of one another when stuck together. PTR’s that stick together without falling off must be re-washed in cold water and (Palmolive®) detergent.

8mm/Super8: flashscanHD

Transfer more film in a day with flashscanHDs faster than real-time speeds, in High Definition!

The starting point for more productive home movie transfer businesses.

flashscanHD provides quality, speed and convenience that can’t be matched by projectors and projector-based systems or “low cost” equipment that has a very long scanning time, more processing after capture, and a productivity problem when transfer companies and customers want reasonable turnaround time.

Don’t wait around:

  • 400 foot reel is done in 10 minutes instead of 30 at real time.flashscanHD-GreenLamphouse-317 x 400
  • Controllable Automatic White Level and White Balance correction make volume transfers of film even more practical.

That’s the reality of this proven tool for film transfer businesses, archives and post-production houses. Even cable access channels!

  • Safe, SPROCKETLESS, CLAW-FREE continuous motion capstan drive uses laser technology to detect perforation holes, counter picture jumps at splices, and to steady the image during speedy transfer at more than 3X real-time for silent 8mm and Super8 films.
  • Magnetic Sound Head covers main and balance stripes  for stereo or two-channel mono pickup, at real time or faster. Retracts for silent film.
  • 3-chip HD camera ensures better color than lower-cost systems.
  • AgiScan software controls the machinery and color correction.
  • Integrated hardware/software package does the “heavy lifting” for picture and sound processing during transfer, at up to 50 film frames per second. (720p/25 HD output at 50fps, 1080i/25 at 25 fps.)
  • Optional AgiScan “Record” module changes pitch, handles frame rate conversions automatically, speeding workflow.
  • Tweakable automatic correction ranges provide better auto results.
  • Or manually adjust the level and color balance of the RGB LED Array for initial white balance, then adjust black and gamma levels and color balances.
    • Bring up shadow detail but maintain blacks. De-pink faded film.*
  • Built-in Waveform monitor, Vectorscope and Histogram enable accuracy without use of outboard scopes or added expense.
  • Use the optional AVID ARTIST® COLOR panel for color correction flexibility and speed.  Adjust sound, framing, color while running.
  • Optical image sizing allows full-frame 4:3 aspect centered in the 16:9 HD image or enlarging the 4:3 image to fill the 16:9 HD frame.
    • Repeatable, motorized zoom and focus makes it easy.
  • Transfer via Blackmagic Design HD-SDI capture cards or Thunderbolt Ultrastudio boxes. Thunderbolt laptops can be used as lower-cost capture stations with files going to Thunderbolt drives.**
  • The AgiScan 2.7 software package runs on Mac OS X, Windows XP for wide compatibility.
  • High Energy, adjustable RGB LED Array for extra punch, long life.
  • Optional Particle Transfer Rollers to clean film during transfer.
