Super Electrolysis Tank - Winter is coming
While my old electrolysis tank got the job done it was quite slow. I think the main problem was the anode (a small bbq grill) getting corroded badly. No amount of wire brushing seemed to restore the performance of the tank.
After reading about some of the hotrod setups the guys on the Wagner and Griswold Society page built I decided I'd follow suit and take the plunge on a serious charger and surround my cast iron with an anode with some real surface area. I can now set the new charger on a 40 amp continuous current which completely thrashes my old setup. (6 amps)
I have a lot of iron yet to be cleaned. (A little known fact about old black iron cookware is it multiplies like rabbits so keep your iron separated) Since the snow flies early at nearly 8000 feet (and Black Iron Chick wants her side of the garage back) I figured I needed to get the cleaning done before winter so a serious performance boost was in order.
