- Dec 21, 2018 -

Standard Styles and Sizes 

Rectangular—21 ⁄2″ × 6″ × Length 

Round—21 ⁄2″ Diameter × Length 

Standard Stock lengths include 18″, 24″, 30″. Other lengths built to order. 

All Baskets available in Titanium, Zirconium, Stainless Steel and Monel Mesh Types & Choosing the Right One 

Mini-Expanded—3 ⁄16″ × SWD × 1 ⁄2″ LWD . . . . . . . . . . . . 65% mesh open area 

Large-Expanded—1 ⁄2″ × SWD × 11 ⁄4″ LWD . . . . . . . . . . . 75% mesh open area 

Perforated—1 ⁄2″ dia. on 11⁄16″ staggered centers . . . . . . . . 50% mesh open area 

SWD = Short Width Dimension 

LWD = Long Width Dimensions on Diamond Pattern 

Industry Standard calls for 2:1 Anode to Cathode ratio when calculating anodes in a bath. 

Mini-Expanded Mesh is the most commonly used mesh type, offering a compromise between enough open area and basket stability. 

Large-Expanded Mesh is highly used for large anode ball applications. 

Perforated is the most durable and used with a variety of anode material.

Basket Amperage and Hooks Rectangular Baskets are standard with 50 AMPS/Bskt 

Double Contact Hooks. Higher amperage is available (i.e. 100 AMPS, 150 AMPS and 200+ AMPS). To determine the AMPS needed per basked, use the following formula: 

AMPS needed per basket = Total AMPS of Tank /Total Number of Baskets 

Amperage Rating per Hook: 25 AMP = 1 ⁄8″ × 1″ Double Contact Hook or 3 ⁄8″ Square Bar Hook

50 AMP = 1 ⁄4″ × 1″ Double Contact Hook or 1 ⁄2″ Square Bar Hook

75 AMP = 3 ⁄8″ × 1″ Double Contact Hook or 5 ⁄8″ Square Bar Hook 

100 AMP = 1 ⁄2″ × 1″ Double Contact Hook or 3 ⁄4″ Square Bar Hook

Considerations for Basket Sizing The following rules of thumb are recommended for sizing baskets:  Baskets should be 2″ to 4″ shorter than the longest piece of work 

Baskets should be 1″ above the solution level 

Hook length is measured from the top of anode bar to 1″ above the solution level 

Quantities for rectangular baskets should be three (3) 21 ⁄2″ × 6″ baskets for every two feet of bus bar
