I would like to know if anyone has used a catridge type diatomaceous earth filter for nickel plating. The flow through my filtering system would be 180 gpm. If you have used these types of filters are there any concerns. Thanks,

Hi, Steve. Diatomaceous earth is used as a filter aid for nickel plating, so I don't know any reason these cartridges would cause problems. Good luck.
