Question:

I have been given the task of evaluating and upgrading the filtration processes on our plating tanks. While I understand the basic principles involved I do not have a good understanding of the process as applied to plating baths. Can you provide me with some information on this topic? N.P.

Answer:

Most everybody in our industry understands that filtration is a necessity in today’s plating environment, but many platers really do not have a good grasp of what is really involved. I recommend that you start your “filtration training” by reading the chapter on Solution Filtration in the 2002 PRODUCTS FINISHING DIRECTORY AND TECHNOLOGY GUIDE or online at www.pfonline.com. Another useful article can be found in the Metal Finishing 2002 Guidebook & Directory. You can also get good information from vendors in the 2002 PRODUCTS FINISHING DIRECTORY AND TECHNOLOGY GUIDE or in the Suppliers section www.pfonline.com. Look under Filtration Equipment, solution.
