A note on our kits;
Every item in our electroplating kits
- makes an important contribution to the overall success of the plating process
- has been thoroughly tested to ensure it performs its job at the highest level in the overall electroplating process
- is either made in-house or has been carefully sourced from our trusted suppliers
These factors ensure consistent, top quality plating results for a fair price.
Our Rhodium Plating Kit includes;
|Current can be set at start of tank plating process and will remain set at that level throughout||No need to check and adjust the setting once the plating process has started, leaving you confident that plating is taking place at a constant level.|
|Amp meter readable to 2 decimal places||Amp meter readable to 2 decimal places|
|Can be adjusted for use with brush plating||Allows you to use the brush plating process as a compliment to the tank plating process, which allows for greater flexibility.|
Hot Plate Stirrer
|Fully variable heat control||Allows you to keep your rhodium tank plating plating solution at just the right temperature for optimum performance|
|Rhodium plating solution is agitated with a magnetic stirrer at the bottom of the beaker during plating.||Mechanical agitation is a safer alternative to air agitation, as it eradicates any risk of the aerosol effect of the rhodium tank plating solution. Mechanical agitation keeps the plating solution moving over the surface of the item being plated in a consistent way, again maximising the efficiency of the tank plating process. Mechanical agitation avoids unnecessary oxidisation of the metal plating solution that air agitation will cause.|
|Made of pyrex glass||
|Digital thermometer probe attached to outside wall of tank||
|Comes in 250ml, 500ml and 1litre sizes. With the Mesh Electrodes inserted, the internal dimensions of each size beaker are as follows; 250ml; Height – 7cm, Diameter – 6cm 500ml; H – 10cm, D; 8cm 1Lt; H;13cm, D;8cm||Rhodium tank plate different sized objects individually or in small batches, from rings to trophies.|
|Made from stainless steel||
|Designed to be used with our Plating Arm and Clamp (sold separately)||Allows for complete flexibility – you can adjust height to of arms to accommodate small 250ml rhodium plating tanks up to and including 5 litre tanks|
|Electrical connection to work via negative lead, plugged into small socket at base of stand||Again avoids having to dangle work on negative lead directly into rhodium plating tank|
|Made bespoke from solid stainless steel and designed to be used in conjunction with the Plating Arm Clamp||Fully conductive. Will not corrode and contaminate rhodium tank plating solution. When used with clamp, can be moved up or down the stand in any position to fit any size of plating beaker.|
|Has ball head join point at one end to accommodate crocodile clip||Ball head allows complete 360 degree movement of crocodile clip, so you can quickly and easily make fine adjustments to the position of you work in the rhodium tank plating solution.|
|Made in-house from non-corrosive stainless steel||Will not corrode over time and risk contamination of rhodium tank plating solution|
|Precision made from solid stainless steel to fit our Plating Stand perfectly, with wing screw for easy tightening||Means that you can fully adjust the height of the arm and it will be held firmly and safely in any position on the stand.|
Gold Plated Jigging Wire
|Gold plated||No risk of contamination of plating solution during plating|
|Easy to bend by hand||You’ll be able to shape a jig easily for complexly shaped items or a number of smaller items.|
Magnetic Stirring Bar
|Magnetised stirrer bar, encased in plastic and to be used with our Hot Plate Stirrer||Helps agitate the rhodium tank plating solution during plating, ensuring optimum performance of solution.|
|Simple digital display||Can be easily read on desk top, away from rhodium tank plating equipment – no need to lean over plating tanks to see temperature of solutions.|
|Thermometer probe fits into thermometer port attached to outside of Glass Plating Beaker||No danger of rhodium plating solution being contaminated by having to dangle stainless steel probe in plating solution.|
|Spring action double bladed cutters||Sits comfortably in the hand and small enough for delicate work.|
|Fast efficient electro-cleaner that doesn’t damage the surface you’re plating||
A guide for choosing the right sized beaker for the size of the work you want to plate.
Maximum Working Internal Dimensions of Plating Beakers
|* You need to leave a 10mm gap between the outer edge of the work piece and the Mesh, whatever the size of beaker you are using.|
|** Working height allowing 10mm gap from bottom of beaker|
For example, if you are using the 250ml plating beaker your work piece can’t at any point in its width, exceed 44mm and can’t at any point be longer than 70mm.
A key feature of our kits is the flexibility to be customise them by removing items you don’t need or adding extra items from our product range. For example, you may already own a hot plate stirrer, or you may want to you downsize or upsize the plating beaker according to the dimensions of the items you wish to plate. The table below will help you do this.
|Kit size:||250ml||500ml||1 Litre||2 Litre|
|Beaker||250ml Plating Beaker||500ml Plating Beaker||1 Litre Plating Beaker||2 Litre Plating Beaker|
|Mesh Electrode||Mesh Electrode for 250ml Beaker||Mesh Electrode for 500ml Beaker||Mesh Electrode for 1 Litre Beaker||Mesh Electrode for 2 Litre Beaker|
|Stirrer||Stirring Bar (Mini)||Stirring Bar (Mini)||Stirring Bar (Medium)||Stirring Bar (Medium)|
|Rhodium Tank Plating Solution||250ml||500ml||1 litre||2 litre|
The advertised kit is the 250ml kit. If you want to upsize to the 1 litre kit, you will need to remove the 250ml Plating Beaker, Mesh Electrode for 250ml Beaker, Stirring Bar (Mini) and 250ml of Rhodium Tank Plating Solution from the kit list.
You will then need to add the 1 Litre Plating Beaker, Mesh Electrode for 1 Beaker, Stirring Bar (Medium) and 1 litre of Rhodium Tank Plating Solution.
