Performance and Bath Life

Performance and Bath Life

N/A When mixed in accordance with simple directions and operated at the recommended temperature, a new solution of B-9 Nickel Stripper should strip ELECTROLYTIC NICKEL at the rate of one to two mils per hour and should dissolve 2 1/2 - 6 ounces of nickel per gallon of solution depending upon the amount of stripper used for make up, the operating temperature, agitation and etc. of the stripping bath during use. The stripping rate of ELECTROLESS NICKEL depends on the phosphorus content of the plate as well as other factors. Phosphorus content not exceeding five percent should dissolve at the same approximate rate as electrolytic nickel plate. Higher phosphorus values will require additional time.

Chemical nickel strippers remove the most nickel per gallon of solution when they are correctly maintained. A stripping bath that is used lightly and kept hot over a prolonged time period will strip less nickel than an identical bath that is used quickly. To prolong bath life, allow all B-9 products to cool to room temperature when not in use.

A one-component nickel stripper, the B-9 product line offers ease of operation, an absence of fumes and unpleasant odors, almost complete elimination of operator hazards, and simplified waste disposal of the spent bath. Your supplier stands ready at all times to assist you with technical advice to aid in adapting the B-9 Nickel Strippers to your needs in your facilities.

Tanks and Equipment

Tanks and Equipment

N/A TANKS: Tanks may be unlined steel, polypropylene, stainless steel or most any plastic lined tank that will survive operational temperature.

AGITATION: Agitation or circulation of the B-9 stripper solutions is required to prevent stratification of the bath. Mild air, pumped or stirred solution, mechanical agitation or tumbling parts in a barrel are all adequate methods.

HEAT: Solution heating is required to maintain a recommended temperature of 120 degrees to 150 degrees Fahrenheit during the stripping operation. To prolong bath life, heating should be discontinued immediately after use. NOTE: Steam coils should never be placed directly in the stripping bath. If steam is used the coils should be placed in a separate compartment filled with water to make the heating process more gentle. The stripping bath will last much longer if heat is applied in this manner from any source. (A SAVINGS OF UP TO 40 % CAN BE REALIZED OVER THE LIFE OF THE BATH). If the heater must be in the stripping bath, you must agitate the bath thoroughly to reduce boiling of the bath at the interface of the heater. It is recommended that agitation be directed at, or placed under, the heater to quickly move the solution in contact with the heating surface.
