WHAT IS ELECTROPLATING? Electroplating is the process of coating one metal or metal object with a very thin layer of another metal, typically by applying a direct electric current. This partially dissolves the metals and creates a chemical bond between them. The coating applied by electroplating is usually around 0.0002 inches thick. By creating a chemical bond, the plating is a permanent addition to the surface of the base metal. This means that it will not naturally fall off or separate. However, plating can be worn off over months and years of use and wear. Because this top layer is so thin, it has very specific uses. Some metals are used as a coating, because they give added protection from rust, damage or corrosion. HOW ELECTROPLATING WORKS Mechanically attach gold to other metals thr... [More]


HOW ELECTROPLATING WORKS Mechanically attach gold to other metals through heating metals and placing them together then rapidly cooling the combination. This was hammered into shape for statues, books and many other artifacts. Modern gold plating, called gold electroplating, relies on a chemical process to combine various layers of metal into a solid piece with a layer of gold resting on the surface. Electroplating has been in use commercially since the 1840s and was heavily refined during the two World Wars. In all gold plating, the part is polished and cleaned as thoroughly as possible before the electroplating process starts. Gold plating will look uneven and smudged if the surface is dirty, oily, scratched or otherwise damaged. Modern electroplating begins with the creation of a metal ... [More]


1. What are electrically conductive solutions? Electrically conductive solutions are solutions that are formed when an electrolyte is dissolved in a polar solvent, for example water. When the electrolyte is put into a polar solvent, it is dissolved into negatively charged anions and positively charged cations. When a direct current is applied to the solution, the anions are drawn to the positively charged electrode (or anode) and cations are drawn to the negatively charged electrode (or cathode). The clue is pretty much in the name; electrically conducting solutions are solutions capable of conducting electricity for manipulating the movement of the ions formed by dissolving the electrolyte.   2. What are the differences between electrowinning and electrorefining? ... [More]

Frequently Asked Questions about Electrowinning and Electrorefining

1. What is electrowinning? Electrowinning is a process in which metal ions present in an electrically conductive solution are separated using a direct current. This is achieved when a direct current is applied across an anode and cathode that are submerged in an electrically conductive solution causing the metal to deposit on the cathode. We say that metals like these were electrowon.   2. Is it possible to improve the electrowinning process? Luckily advances in electrowinning have overcome these problems. Vortex emew electrowinning technology offers an alternative approach to conventional electrowinning ensuring much better results. The emew electrowinning technology uses cylindrical cells in which the electrolyte is rapidly circulated past the electrodes&nbs... [More]

Abstract:- An electrolytic cell is provided for producing a sodium hypochlorite solution with active chlorine from brine. A plurality of the cells are typically employed with provision for cooling the electrolyte. The cell comprises a cylindrical metallic cathode with a smaller cylindrical metallic anode disposed within the cathode to define an annular passage through which the electrolyte passes. In preferred embodiments, the annular passage can contain particulate material such as carbon to enhance surface contact, and an anionic membrane can be provided between the anode and cathode to divide the annular passage into two chambers. Description:- According to the present invention, sodium hypochlorite with active chlorine ions in aqueous solution is produced from brine using an electrolyt... [More]
