OMG Co. offers 13 models of filter pumps specifically designed for electroplating, including nickel, copper, zinc, cadmium, tin, gold, silver and brass plating. The pumps suck the electrolytic solution out of the working bath and return it to the production cycle after it has been filtered and purified of waste such as “anode mud.” Their filtering blocks use alternated inserts and papers, guaranteeing filtration to less than 1 micron, the company says.

The filter pumps are made of anti-corrosive materials, including polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), AISI 316 L, AISI 304, silicon carbide for the mechanical seals, and a protective elastomer called ebonite that coats the filter-containing tank and its cover. These materials can withstand acids and other dangerous substances typically contained in galvanic baths, the company says.
