to fabricate V-blocks, anode and cathode rails on and around the plating
tanks. We supply all necessary material, fabrication, engineering and
installation for all your bussing needs, including turnkey projects.
What Is Copper Bussing And Why Do We Need It?
Copper Bussing is a means of transferring much needed electric power. In the plating industry, copper buss bar is used to connect rectifiers to the plating tanks. Without a means to transfer your electric power your much-needed equipment simply will not work.
Advantages of Copper Buss Bar
What Is Good Quality Copper Bussing?
Good quality copper bussing will maximize the transfer of power from the power source to your equipment. In the plating industry, this means from the outside power to the rectifier and from the rectifier to the plating line.
What Is Poor Quality Copper Bussing?
Quality copper bussing is where there is a great wastage of power between
the source and the load (Power wastage is very expensive). You might ask
where does this wasted power go? Wasted power usually disappears in the
form of heat or shorts.
Power Can Be Lost Primarily In Two Ways
Insufficient Bussing: This is where the total cross sectional area of
copper is insufficient for the required power. Two reasons for this are
that there was not enough copper bar used in the original installation
or there is a break in the bussing somewhere between the rectifier and
