Trivalent and hexavalent Chrome are found in varying concentrations in a chrome bath . A regular decorative bath runs well with 250 Hexa and 3 to 4 Gms/lit Tri, and so would a hard chrome bath.
The Nascent oxygen generated at the anode converts Trivalent back to hexa, so the relative anode area needs a look. If lack of trivalent is affecting your results , add 0.25 gram per liter Sugar to the bath. that will push up the trivalent Chrome.
