Example of Electropolishing Setup

  1. SS beaker/tank or glass/plastic vessel with a SS cathode
  2. To maintain EP temperature; high capacity for low temperature electropolishing and lower capacity for room temperature electropolishing
  3. For less conductive EP solutions higher voltage range is necessary
  4. Magnetic stirring is convenient and easy; other means of exerting solution flow may offer more uniformity
  5. Part-dependent; SS wires or forceps are convenient; titanium and some specialty alloys will draw less current
