Titration procedure for Chlorides in an Anodize Tank?



(-----) February 13, 2008

I have no idea on how to find out the amount of chlorides that are present in my anodize tank or my other tanks. Can someone guide me in the direction to find this out? Also is there a way to remove the chlorides without having to dump my tank? I plan on getting a RO/DI system asap but I need to fix this problem first. Thanks for the help.

Ryan,

It will depend on how well equipped your Lab is for the technique you can use.

If you have ion selective capabilities then you could titrate with silver nitrate to the equivalence point.

If not you are probably looking at a gravimetric method of analysis. This involves precipitating silver chloride from solution, filtering off the precipitate and then weighing. Unfortunately this method is often inaccurate.

As for trying to rescue a chloride contaminated bath, I wouldn't bother, make up a fresh solution and ensure that you do not have chlroide contamination.

Hello Ryan,
Titration of chloride containing solution with Potassium Chromate as internal indicator against Std Silvernitrate solution is a simple method.
