Amperage & Hooks
Rectangular Baskets are standard with 50 AMPS/Bskt Double Contact Hooks. Higher amperage is available (i.e. 100 AMPS, 150 AMPS & 200+ AMPS). To determine the AMPS needed per basket, use the following formula:

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

Sizing
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) 2 1/2" x 6" baskets for every 2 feet above the bar.
  • For further questions please feel free to contact us at Metafin Supply for recommendations concerning basket sizing.
