Thank you Luiz for the link!
Few years ago I got developer tank like this.
Having no use for it I put it on eBay.

These tanks worked perfectly and quckly. There were various in field use around the 1950 years in broadcast television, and in the Jockey Club. They were used with monobath developing and immediatly subsequent washing. Remember these days there were no video tape recording. In Jockey Club those parafernalia were used up to the end of the '70s when hey changed everything.
