  • 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.
