Air agitation for acid chloride zinc plating bath




Hi!

I am trying to electroplate some cylinders but I need air agitation what can I use? I am currently using an acidic zinc chloride bath.

Commercial high pressure low volume blowers are available from plating equipment distributors, and the dispersion piping is easily made by drilling PVC pipe. But I suspect you may be thinking of something quite small. How big are these cylinders and how big is the plating tank?

If you are using a small tank to electroplate, you may use equipment for fish tanks (small air pumps, valves and plastic piping).
