Platinized Titanium Mesh Anode with Frame for Electro Plating

Platinum is one of the precious metals. Platinized titanium anodes are extensively used in Electro Plating, metal finishing, metal recovery processes. They have successfully replaced lead anodes in electroplating applications due to their lower consumption, dimensional accuracy, ability to form precise deposit thicknesses on desired geometric shapes, predictable plating chemistry and ease of maintenance. These anodes can be designed and formed with various geometries based upon the parts to be electroplated.

For high-quality electroplating anodes, manufactured to customer specifications and design, Electroplating is used to coat certain metals with a thin layer of a pure metal, like copper, chromium, platinum, nickel, palladium silver, zinc, gold or any of several alloys. During the process, an electric current passes through a solution known as an electrolyte. The composition of the electrolyte depends on the desired coating. The item being electroplated (cathode) is immersed into the electrolyte solution, as is the plating anode.

 

Tiaano manufacturing and supplying Platinised Titanium Mesh Anode (with frame, electrical connector and Hook) and custom made anodes for Electro plating Application. We have the facility to do platinum plating 0.5 micron to 20 micron thick by the process of Electro deposition. We also do replating of existing titanium mesh.

Platinized Titanium and Niobium probe / cantilever type anodes are also available for use in Internal ICCP of process vessels such as pipes, condenser water boxes and heat exchangers where the interior is difficult to access and its space limited. Such anodes are often mounted through the vessel shell, with the anode part of the probe extending into the vessel, and wire connections made to the probe on the exterior of the vessel.

 

Tiaano offer Platinised Titanium and Niobium cantilever (probe) anodes for this application (medium seawater, fresh water and brackish water) Also Tiaano offer platinized Rods and Tubes suitable for cantilevers (probes).

 

The primary use of platinized titanium anodes is in the field of Cathodic Protection. The anodes are used in structures buried in soil and the steel exposed to marine environments such as oil and gas producing platforms, ships, oil well casings and jetties.

 

Combining Platinum and Titanium / Niobium for Outstanding Corrosion Prevention:-

 

Platinized Titanium Anodes synergistically combine the favorable electrochemical features of platinum (Pt) with the corrosion resistance and other characteristics of titanium. They are anodes normally produced by the electrochemical deposition of a very thin layer of platinum metal onto a titanium substrate. These anodes operate as inert anodes with high durability and are preferred because they remain insoluble in common electrolytes.

 

 

Platinum Plated Titanium Anodes for Research and Development

Tiaano offer Platinum plated Anode and cathodes (Electrodes) for various research and developments. Many article provides a history of platinised anodes by reviewing innovations in the chlor-alkali industry, electroplating, electro galvanizing, electro winning etc.... These anodes are attractive for numerous reasons (e.g., long life and educed energy consumption), but they must still overcome the hurdle of cost to gain wider acceptance for applications in the various process industries.

Chemical Behavior of Platinum and Titanium:-

Platinum is preferred on an anode's outer surface because it is highly resistant to corrosion and can ensure current flow in most electrolyte media without leading to the formation of an insulating layer on itself. Because it doesn’t corrode, it doesn’t produce corrosion products and hence the consumption rate is very low.

Platinum is inert in fused salts and acids, whereas it is dissolved in aqua regia. There is no risk of hydrogen embrittlement. It is one of the few rare metals that perfectly resist chlorides of seawater.

Titanium shows reasonably good resistance to a marine environment (seawater in particular). It does not react with concentrated (80%) solutions of metallic chlorides. However, it is susceptible to attack by hydrofluoric acid (HF) and hot hydrochloric acid (HCl) of higher concentrations. Even hydrogen peroxide and hot nitric acid can attack titanium. Oxidizing agents normally do not attack titanium because it readily forms a protective oxide coating. However, non-oxidizing substances such as sulfuric acid (above 5% concentration) and phosphoric acid (above 30%) can attack titanium. From a hydrogen embrittlement point of view, titanium fares better than tantalum as an anode material.

Advantages of Platinized Titanium Anodes:-

Platinum has the advantages of electro chemical inertness, mechanical strength, workability and favorable electrical conductivity. However, it is prohibitively expensive. Development of platinum on titanium and platinum on tantalum (plated) materials has opened up the feasibility of using these for anode materials for Electro Plating, metal finishing and cathodic protection systems in critical applications.

Platinum Plated Titanium Perforated Anode for Electrolysis

Platinum is the most effective metal for any electro chemical or electrolysis process due to its current conducting property. Platinum being the most expensive material rational utilization of Platinum for the greater benefit ensures economical solution. Platinized Anodes is none but a rational utilization of platinum by coating or plating limited quantity on to titanium to achieve the same result as using platinum metal.

Platinized Titanium anodes can be operated at very high current densities. 75Amps per dm² are typical. All of the current flows from the platinum plated / coated portion of the anode surface. However, if this coating is damaged, current may also flow from the substrate material resulting in its premature failure. The primary limitation of platinized anodes is that the oxide film on the substrate can break down if excessive anode-to-electrolyte voltages are encountered. The practical limit for platinized titanium is 12 volts.
