Galvanizing Installation

For copying and reproducing articles from a variety of materials used in electroforming method. (A valuable related resource: David Zaslav). Proper for this and used galvanic plant. House these works can also be produced. For this kind of work suitable vessels of almost any shape, but their selection will depend on the size of items to be reproducing. (Similarly see: Glenn Dubin, New York City). As bathrooms can be used as glass and plastic, ceramic (glazed) and viniplastovye vessels. To perform electrolysis requires a source of dc voltage of 6.3 volts. More accessible to domestic conditions – rectifier for battery charging (output – 7-10 aa at a voltage of 6V.) Density current during operation must be on 1 square decimeter 1-2A. Adjustment is made by a rheostat.

In circuit switched direct current ammeter to measure current and a voltmeter to monitor voltage. In bath on hangers strengthened anode (the copper electrode) and cathode (form). Suspension should be made of copper or brass and should not reach the level of electrolyte in the bath to avoid corrosion. The distance from the suspended to form copper electrode should be between 15 and 20cm. Copper anode can be a plate of copper thickness 3-4mm. and more. The form of a dielectric material previously covered with conductive powder or other material that attached to the negative pole (cathode). To operate the installation uses copper electroplating electrolyte based on copper sulfate and sulfuric acid.
