Rectangular Baskets are standard with 50 AMPS/Bskt Double Contact Hooks. Higher amperage is available (i.e. 100 AMPS, 150 AMPS & 200+ AMPS). To determine the AMPS needed per basket, use the following formula:

AMPS needed per basket =Total AMPS of Tank / Total # of Baskets

Considerations for Basket Sizing
The following rules of thumb are recommended for sizing baskets:

Baskets should be 2' to 4' shorter than the longest piece of work.

Baskets should be 1' above the solution level.

Hook length is measured from the top of anode bar to 1' above the solution level.

Quantities for rectangular baskets should be three(3) 2 1/2' x 6' baskets for every 2 feet above the bar.
