Reticulated Cathodes for Electrowinning


I am interested in testing the possibility of using reticulated cathodes to reduce the metal content in effluents down to the 2-4 ppm level. Do you know of any suppliers of reticulated cathodes.

USFilters is suppling the RETEC equipment that has the reticulated cathodes for EW.

U.S. Filter acquired RETEC, a primary developer of reticulated electrodes. Be sure to call the right office to get more information. U.S. Filter is so big the right hand never knows what the left hand is selling. Try the Billerica, Massachusetts office. If that is a dead end, let me know. I used to work for them and have an extensive phone list.
