The filter pumps are designed to filter electrolytic solutions used in the following processes:
|PROCESS||TYPE OF SOLUTION|
|nickel plating||acid/ alkaline|
|copper plating||acid/ alkaline|
|zinc plating||acid/ alkaline|
|tin plating||acid/ alkaline|
|gold plating||acid/ alkaline|
The machine is not designed to pump or filter liquids other than the ones already listed. For specific applications, it is suggested to contact OMG technical dept.
Regarding electrolytic solutions, the filter pump is absolutely unsuitable for:
Anyway, the liquid’s temperature mustn’t be higher than 70° C.
Electrolytic solutions usually consist of a water base combined with acids (for ex. Hydrochloric or sulphuric acids), chlorides and the metals to be deposited for example nickel, silver, copper, zinc, cadmium, tin.
The filter-pump is made of anticorrosive materials to withstand acids and all the dangerous substances usually contained in galvanic baths. This is meant to prolong the working life of the components and to better prevent the risks of accidental contacts.
In the CESE and TE series the choice of all the mentioned materials, and particularly the way of construction of the filtering block (inserts/papers sequence), are a guarantee of high filtering surface and, therefore, a high filtration degree (filtration < 1 micron).
In particular, according to the different pump models, the filtering surface is between 0,2 mq and 20 mq
