High Current Contacts for Galvanising Equipment

Much emphasis is being placed on the quality of finishing and plating galvanising and electroplating. These increasing requirements are simultaneously combined with the demands for inexpensive methods and rational, low-maintenance production procedures. Every component of a plating system must therefore be equipped to meet these prerequisites. Weak points which can be the cause for repairs or system down-time or that could lead to plating problems must be avoided or eliminated. A major prerequisite for optimal processing is that the current required must be transferred to the items in the vat with as little loss as possible. This factor clarifies the emphasis on transfer mediums and contacts within the system. After a decade of experience in the construction and production of high current contacts, druseidt has gained an understanding of this statement and the problems that occur in these applications. The experience gained, combined with the most up-to-date construction and production systems have made our company into a competent partner for system manufacturers as well as for end users. We offer a complete service palette including consulting and planning, production and delivery right through to installations or moving and reinstalling at the customer site. A full selection of contact systems as well as a multiple of accessories and electrical transfer elements for anodising and galvanising equipment is found in this catalogue. In addition to our extensive standard products, we offer customer specific solutions which are adapted especially for your requirements.

Some Features of Druseidt High Current Contactors

Contactors used around tanks in galvanising or anodising operations are subject to high levels of electrical, mechanical and sometimes chemical loads. For long lasting operation, these components must retain low transfer resistance to ensure current dependent tank parameters and also to avoid energy loss. Based on these requirements, druseidt has been developing and producing various contact systems which enable economic energy use and are also suitable for fully automatic and maintenance free operation.

The following features make druseidt contact systems stand out:

  • Direct current transfer from the contact to the bus-bars by utilising large surfaces and a high number of current transfer points.
  • High conductivity with small installation space.
  • Stable construction which meets mechanical demands.
  • Higher contact pressure but still effortless mounting on bars (e. g. with its own weight).
  • Contacts can be protected from aggressive elements with the use of an A4 stainless steel protective cover. This also gives the unit a more solid mechanical structure.
  • Different contact systems, self tightening as well as pneumatic, are constructed modularly. This allows the simple exchange of worn out parts. Depending on the layout of the system, existing situations can be changed or updated according to requirements.
  • Fast and inexpensive installation and deinstallation as well as quick and easy part replacement.
  • Maintenance friendly construction.

We also produce contact systems which enable problem free clamping for damaged or stretched bus-bars. This allows you to modernise your older systems, e.g. in anodising or hard chrome systems, without having to replace existing work rods.

Selecting the Suitable Contacts and Current Transfer Elements

Current transfer elements in the galvanising branch are bombarded with mechanical and chemical stress as well as the electrical load. In order to choose proper components for the respective job, these criteria must be taken into account. The technical data contained in this catalogue, especially the data on current load, is based on normal system operation and values based on experience in practise. These data are not to be assumed without consultation for all applications and instances.

In order to offer the best possible current transfer solution for your individual application, please contact us. Our support professionals will be glad to provide consultation to support your plans.

The measurements in this catalogue have been determined with the greatest care and are updated continuously in our documentation. Because we continuously update our products however, we reserve the right to make technical changes as well as changes to measurements and formats after print. In case of any confusion, the values in our written confirmation apply.
