Black and white photograph of the gelatine pasteurisation room on the 2nd floor of Building 2, Emulsion Department, at the Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd factory, Coburg circa 1963.

The gelatine pasteurisation room is situated directly above the finishing room and houses three kettles. The smallest kettle, (partly shown on extreme left) is of 60 U.S. gallon capacity, and the other two (fully pictured) are each of 100 U.S. gallon capacity. After pasteurisation, the gelatine is run from the kettle through the Mono pump (right foreground) to the Ekwip 21P filter (left foreground), and then through the drawdown line to the Finishing Room.

Part of a photographic album produced by Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd, Coburg, containing approximately 70 black and white 8 x 10 inch photographic prints of the Emulsion Department; plans of the plant; colour photographs of the Emulsion Department management staff and Development and Production Supervision staff.

The album belonged to Ian 'Charlie' Yelland, who worked for Kodak Australasia Emulsion Department for 46 years, retiring in 1978.
