- Plating Equipment: Reel-to-Reel
modular versions of portable plating tanks were designed
and installed at a plating research center. These units
were made portable so that they could be moved to different
rooms and production plants for testing. Each unit consisted
of pre-plumbed pumps, heaters and controls, cartridge
filters, rectifiers, and anodes/cathodes for various
processes performed. The tanks were mounted on stainless
steel frames with SS castors and were made from polypropylene.
Each had integral overflow baffles and agitation spargers
installed. Special parts drainage and storage areas
were also designed into the unit structure.
portable equipment custom concepts include :
chemical / brightener feeders with permanently mounted
LMI pumps, amp-minute / Ph controllers, and 5-55 gallon
drum. One 110 V plug with shunt wires or a Ph probe
for simple hookup.
anode cleaning carts to separate anodes, fines, and
50-100 gallon tanks for continuous and batch solution
filtering, dummying, and carbon treatment.
Portable Plating Systems with Rinses
"PLATING - VAC"
many $100 shop vacs do you burn-up in a year ? In most
plating shops the answer is quite high. While cheap
shop vacs provide great portability (when empty) and
quick effective vacuuming, their electric motors burn-up
quickly and the "true" cost, including disposal,
is higher than most companies realize.
order to provide a "corrosion free" alternative
for platers, we have designed a compressed air operated
vacuum permanently mounted onto a 55-gallon portable
1" thick polypropylene tank. The "Plating-Vac"
is maintenance free while handling a wide variety of
plating chemicals, including chlorides and heated caustics.
Solutions are quickly sucked into the vac tank, through
the removable access port, and then through a 75 mesh
bag filter. The filter catches larger particles like
metal anodes, nuts, & bolts and is easily removed
for reclaim or disposal of its contents. Solution depth
is visible from the outside of the tank due to the translucent
PP. Once the tank is full, solution may be quickly pumped
(by the attached Graco Husky 515 air diaphragm pump)
or gravity drained to a treatment or recovery tank.
; While a Venturi vacuum is effective in removing the
bottom ½" of a tanks solution, it is our
opinion that an electric shop vac provides superior
suction in this realm.
Above the ½" level, we feel the Venturi
vacuum provides greater efficiencies in solution removal.

Ion Exchange Resin Column
portable resin unit, with all powder coated SS frame
and CPVC/PVC components, was designed for operation
in a harsh chloride environment. The unit was designed
for frequent replacement of ion exchange resins to reduce
precious metal liability in a captive plating shop.
Resins, in (3) 1/3 cubic ft. canisters per chamber,
can be easily removed & replaced with new resins
when metal breakthrough occurs. Operation of the unit
was performed for both a large sump continuous recovery
set-up and for a small tank on-line batch.
