Edge strips

  • When fitted to cathodes in electro-winning plants, cathode edge strips prevent build-up of metal round the edges facilitating the stripping of product. Made from high quality, high impact strength PVC these edge strips combine flexibility with strength and durability. Available in two sections they are supplied cut to length to suit each individual plant.

Cathode repairs and edge strip removals

  • When Cathodes and Anodes are bent during the harvesting cycle, due to a failure in the crane or as a consequence of aggressive operation, you find the anode and cathode touching each other during the electro-winning process creating a direct short. This causes, one a hot spot and two an inconsistency in the current efficiency across the plate and its ability to plate material consistently across the blade. CSI provide a service to straighten Cathodes and Anodes, where your hanging straightness is corrected.
