Installing DSA insoluble MMO-anodes in conjunction with existing soluble anode baskets can be a cost-effective method to control metal-ion balance in the plating bath. DSA MMO-anodes provide an effect alternative to cost to dummy plating of the baths or decanting bath solutions to maintain the desired plating metal ion concentration. As the concentration of metal ions increase, plating quality can diminish effecting production operations. Dummy plating or bath decanting incur additional costs associated with lost production or supplementary waste treatment operations.
MMO balancing anodes when properly configured to the plating tank will provide consistent bath plating characteristics and resulting in high quality plated product.
