Mini Anodizing Line



(-----) February 14, 2008

My little 1st grade girl is interested in how to color coat aluminum. I recently started working at a anodizing place. I heard from someone down the line that you can set up a little line using 9 volt batteries, is this true, how and what would I need for this.

Thanks for any input.

Check the voltage meter on the anodizing rectifiers in your shop in the middle or near the end of a cycle. I think you'll need at least 12 volts, not 9.

12 volts is not very good. You need 14 to 18 volts. Look for a small battery charger [affil. link to info/product on Amazon] for "marine" batteries. They put out about 14.6 volts vs 13+ for a car battery charger. Go online and look for a cheapie.
