Electrochemical Destruction of Perfluorooctanesulfonate in Electroplating Wastewaters - 1st & 2nd Quarterly Report

This is the first report on a new NASF-AESF Foundation research project dealing with PFAS - a critical issue for the surface finishing industry.  The project will study an electrochemical, destructive treatment strategy for the remediation of relevant PFASs in electroplating wastewater.  The overall objective is to utilize a cost-effective reactive electrochemical membrane (REM) for the removal of PFAS from synthetic electroplating wastewater.

Improved Process Capabilities for Groove Repair

Advanced selective plating techniques have been developed for the challenging application of repairing internal grooves that have experienced severe corrosion.  Many groove configurations require uniform, high-thickness deposition of a plated deposit onto any, or all, of the surfaces with a minimal need for intermediate machining steps.  This paper demonstrates how a combination of an engineered, wrap-less anode design along with optimized computer controlled operating parameters has led to reduced downtime, high quality and repeatable selective plating repairs.
