This wet gate was specifically modified to handle some of the worst cases of film curvature and warping seen in 16mm films. Most notable is the fact that this gate relies on ball bearings to smooth out and flatten the film as it passes through the gate; no registration pins!

Films exhibiting severe buckling due to acetate deterioration or "vinegar syndrome" can be handled using this custom gate.
