Rotating Cylinder Hull Cell

Application ID: 7578

Rotating cylinder Hull cells are an important experimental tool in electroplating and electrodeposition and are used for the measurement of nonuniform current distribution, mass transport, and throwing power of plating baths. The model reproduces the results for a commercially available cell (RotaHull(R)) as published in paper [1]. In particular, it investigates the primary, secondary, and tertiary current distributions along the electrode as well as the copper diffusion in the diffuse layer around the cathode.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
