Model 532
1/4-Inch Magnetic Tape Conditioner

     FEATURES

  • Efficiently cleans and conditions 1/4-inch magnetic tape

  • Four automatically advancing cleaning tissue stations clean both sides of the tape

  • Easy Operation

  • Handles 7-inch to 10.5-inch tapes

  • NAB, CINE and AEG (pancake) hubs available

  • Hub Field Conversion Kits available

The BOW Model 532 was created to combine an efficient, safe cleaning operation with fast precision stacking of 1/4-inch tape on a wide variety of reels. The 532 was designed to handle reel sizes from 7-inches to 10 1/2-inches in diameter for NAB, CINE or AEG (pancake) reel hubs. Field conversion kits are also available if more than on hub style is needed. 

Tissue cleaning stations and a sapphire blade, proven time and again to be the most effective cleaning method, remove debris from both sides of the tape. Downstream, a uniquely designed packwheel delivers a straight, perfectly centered stack on both plastic and metal reels. 

Tape speed it typically 200 ips (inches per second). However if tape stiction is an issue, we now offer the Selectable Speed Modification (SSM) option that allows the tape speed to be lowered and selectable between 60 ips and 120 ips.
