It is important for the quality of the surface finish that the plating solutions are kept free from particulate and build-up of organics does not occur.

Most finishers will have a recirculating loop on the plating bath that includes a particle removal filter such as a bag, depth or surface (pleated) cartridge. Intermittently, a carbon cartridge is used to clear up the organics that build up from environmental conditions and elements directly introduced, such as the components and racks.

Stages of Filtration & Water Treatment

Bulk Solids Removal

To remove a high quantity of solids, gels and other irregular shaped particles, a filtration solution with high surface area and flow properties is required.

Particle Removal

Prevents debris, scale flakes, dirt and particle build up in pipework, tanks, equipment and where present, premature blinding of filtration stages further along the cascade.
