you said, "Toyobo even recommend 5-15 minutes at 122-140 degrees,

I find this surprising as I'm paranoid about drying my plates after
processing. Obviously there's the need to remove surface water as
quickly as possible, but then I carefully dry it with a hairdryer for
2-3 mins and then place it in a film drying cabinet for a further
5-10 minutes. Toyobo even recommend 5-15 minutes at 122-140 degrees,
depending on the plate thickness.
