A P P A R A T U S FOR ELECTROLYTIC TREATMENT U.S. Patent 5,827,411. Oct. 27, 1998 J.I. Bishara et al., assignors to Eltech Systems Corp., Chardo~, Ohio

An electroplating, anodizing, or e tch ing a p p a r a t u s compr i s ing means defining an electrolytic

cell including an anode chamber and an anode therein; a cathode chamber and a cathode therein; an i o n - p e r m e a b l e d i a p h r a g m separa tor be tween the cathode chamber and the anode chamber comprising a fibrous mat; means for c i r cu la t ing r inse so lu t ion from a rinse t ank through the c a t h o d e c h a m b e r p r o d u c i n g catholyte/rinse; means for circu- lating the bath of an electroplat- ing, anod iz ing , or e t ch cell through the anode chamber pro- duc ing an a n o l y t e / b a t h , sa id ano ly te /ba th conta in ing meta l cations; means ibr impressing a cur ren t across the anode and cathode causing the migration of acid anions from the catholyte/ r inse to the anolyte/bath; and the migration of metal cations from the a n o l y t e / b a t h to the

catholyte/rinse, with there being precipitat ion of the metal cations as m e t a l h y d r o x i d e s in the catholyte rinse.
