    Which developer? Different ones have different limits.

    I'm also guessing you mean cm for the print size?

    I don't know about the tetnal kit. Are you seeing any changes in the results? Filter pack ?

    The number of prints sounds high to me. Especially in a drum.

    I use the Tetenal Minilab RA-4 chemistry, in a Nova 3 tank system, but you need to replenish the developer after every few prints to keep the consistency.

    I'd be wary of re-using 125ml in a tank, when I did drum process I always used fresh chemistry.
