Dropout Identification and Cleaning Methods for Magnetic Tape
Many of the specific factors and causes found to be responsible for signal dropouts occurring on instrumentation magnetic tape are described. Dropout producing substances are identified through optical and microchemical techniques; these findings are correlated with measured electrical signal losses to provide source identification of foreign substances present. Instrumentation used to evaluate tape condition and provide real-time monitoring in the field is also described. Effective procedures are outlined for achieving significant improvements in tape life and reducing overall operating costs for the magnetic recording systems which utilize these tapes.
