Anodes for WOOD'S NICKEL STRIKE BATH
WE USE A CONVENTIONAL WOODS NICKEL STRIKE FOR STAINLESS STEEL. FOR ANODES, WE HAVE TYPICALLY USED THE OLD WORN ROLLED NICKEL ANODES FROM OUR WATTS NICKEL BATH. WE ARE NOW SWITCHING THE WATTS BATH TO NICKEL SQUARES IN TITANIUM BASKETS. HAS ANYONE USED THE TITANIUM BASKETS WITH NICKEL SQUARES IN A WOODS NICKEL BATH?WILLIAM F. MORGAN

The Ti baskets will not last as long in the Woods Strike as in conventional nickel because of the high chloride content and anodic current.
Squares? If this is electrolytic nickel and not a sulfur depolarized nickel, you are ok. SD chips are a problem. see some past letters on the subject.
I preferred the rolled depolarized bars.James Watts

Hi William ,
I have work 4 years with a nickel Woods bath. I used titanium baskets and electrolytic squares nickel and along of this four years I haven't any problems with the anodes (this bath works 24 hours per day, five days per week). I hope this can help you to decide about your anodes.JosÈ Francisco Rodrigues da Costa
