Hull Cells & Plating Test Equipment

The Hull cell is a specially designed cell for carrying out practical plating tests on electroplating solutions. The cell is designed so that the cathode is at a pre-defined angle to the anode (as shown below) to produce a range of current densities. The current densities produced in the Hull cell are above and below those that would be used under normal production parameters. This allows any potential problems in the plating solution (e.g. lack of additive) to be observed before any problems are seen on the production line.

Hull Cell dimmensions

Cathode Size: 100 x 75 mm
Anode size: 75 x 50 x 7.5 mm
Solution Volume: 267 ml

 

The current distribution is based upon the formula:- i = I(5.1 - 5.24 log10 X) where

i = current density (A/dm²)

I = total current (ampere)

X = distance from high current density end of panel
