The quality of electroplating baths, which are used to protect aircraft parts from corrosion, is strictly controlled. Read how Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. has increased the efficiency of their analyses thanks to a titration system that is automated and easy to use.
In the highly regulated industry of aircraft manufacturing, electroplating is an important step. In this critical process the aircraft parts are protected against corrosion and prepared for the paint shop. In order to guarantee the quality during this process the different electroplating baths need to be controlled on a regular basis for pH value, concentrate content, acidic content, chromium content, cyanide content and many other parameters. Most of these parameters can be measured using titration methods.
