What equipment can analyze plating solution?




Q. I want to know an equipment that can analysis and measure the amount of nickel sulphamate , nickel chloride and boric acid in sulphate and ammonia [on eBay or Amazon affil links] . as I did not find any technology method .

A. I suppose that the reason you haven't gotten a lot of replies is that sulphamate nickel baths are generally analyzed by good old fashioned titration. Perhaps if you said WHY you need some other method some suggestions would be forthcoming.

A. It is as Mr. Totter says: plain old titration - a buret, a few chemicals, and a good eye.

The only parameters that I've ever tested for that required different equipment were sulphate in a hexavalent chromium bath, and Rochelle salts [on eBay or Amazon affil links] in a cyanide copper bath.

(Though there are titration methods for the latter, they stink. The best way to analyze for tartrate ion in that matrix is, IMHO, ion chromatography.)
