E tank wiring diagram

Postby staninlowerAL » Mon Nov 14, 2016 9:03 pm

:lost: Does someone have a simple wiring diagram for setting up a small E tank? I've read the posts and looked at all the pictures that I can find on the HOW TO forum but I can't seem to get it in my head how to wire this up. :? (This seems to be happening with increasing regularity.) Thanks, Stan

Thanks. The wiring is not clear enough for me to follow. I'm hoping someone will post a simple line drawing that I can follow.

Stan,
Look at the photos of my small e-tank in Peter's link. There are four pieces of rebar that are all wired together in a circle. The negative (black) charger lead attaches to the part being cleaned. The positive (red) lead connects to the circle of rebar electrodes. Simple as that. Add more electrodes and the circle gets bigger, but the principle remains the same.

OK, thanks Don. That's what I needed. Maybe I'm just trying to make it more difficult than it really is. Stan

The electrons flow from the positive to the negative. Connect your positive lead to the part you're wanting de-rusted and your negative lead to the anode rods. Rust will be carried from your part to the anodes.

I forget as well. So I printed off a couple sheets found on the net to remind me of this too. Hope this helps. :coffee:

Stanton,
From what I have done and read, you have the positive/negative connections reversed. The current flow inside the power source is + to -, which makes the flow of the external circuit - to +. Confused yet? :? :)

Yes, Stanton got it backwards. Negative lead from the charger goes to the part you are cleaning, positive to the piece that is going away. Keep the positive battery clip out of the liquid. That is all there is to the wiring. Don't confuse yourself by thinking about which direction the current flows, since that term is often used for either positive current or electron flow.

Ha ha ha!! Told you I kept a paper handy to remind me. I hesitated just before I hit the Submit button on that post thinking, "Is that right?"

I'm done. No more bad, wrongly-remembered advice from me... Sorry to Stan and thanks to Ike and Jim. :lol:
