Anode Bags - available at CDI in Buffalo, NY
A filter that prevents solid anode particles from getting into the electroplating solution.
Once these solid anode particles are in the electroplating solution, they will normally cause roughness that can be "seen and felt" on the electroplated deposit.
Anode bags have a limited life; possibly 6 months at that point they must be laundered or replaced with new anode bags.
Problems occur when the anode bags get old they tend to "Block" Normal Solution transfer between the actual anode and the electroplating solution.
