Considerations for Basket Sizing:

  • 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 ½” x 6″ baskets for every two feet above the bar.

Sizing and Styles:

  • Rectangular Baskets: 2-1/2” x 6″
    – Standard Stock Lengths include 18″, 24″, 30″, 36″. Other lengths are built to order.
  • Round Baskets: 2 1/2″ Diameter x Length
    – Standard Stock Lengths include 18″, 24″, 30″, and 36″. Other lengths are built to order.


Rectangular Baskets are standard with 50 AMPS/Basket Double Contact Hooks. Higher Amperage is available (i.e., 100 Amps, 150 Amps and 200 Plus Amps).

To determine the AMPS needed per basket, please use the following formula:

AMPS needed per Basket =

Total AMPS of TANK

Total # of Baskets

Amperage Rating Per Anode Hook:

  • 25AMP = 1/8″ x 1″ Double Contact Hook or 3/8″ Square Bar Hook
  • 50AMP = 1/4″ x 1″ Double Contact Hook or 1/2″ Square Bar Hook
  • 75AMP = 3/8″ x 1″ Double Contact Hook or 5/8″ Square Bar Hook
  • 100AMP = 1/2″ x 1″ Double Contact Hook or 3/4″ Square Bar Hook

Normal Application:

  • Inverted “V” Lift Hooks
  • Inverted “U” Hooks
  • “T” Handle Lift Hooks
  • Reverse Lift Hooks for easier access in lifting baskets
  • Submergible Hooks
  • Loading Chutes for easier anode loading
  • Mesh on 4 sides of basket for greater anode to cathode ratio

For Heavy Duty applications, TITAN offers the following anode basket options:

  • Heavier hooks for strength and current carrying capabilities
  • Ti Clad Copper Hooks for higher amperage rating
  • Thicker mesh material to minimize bulging of basket
  • Thicker side channel construction
