Woods Nickel Strike Anodes

(1999)

I read in an old copy of Metal Finishing about someone switching to insoluble anodes in a Wood's Nickel Strike bath. I am looking for someone who has had success with Platinum-Clad Niobium anodes or some other material for reducing the amount of Ni waste.

Thank you,

Doug

Hi Doug ,

Forget about Platinum Clad or other Clad Niobium Anodes they are miles too expensive & don't carry enuff current anyways , the most common anode Material used in a Woods Nickel Strike other than Nickel , is CARBON , which is cheap , but has one draw back , using carbon Anodes leads to the production of Chlorine at the anode and it makes operating the bath a real Pain .
