DATA QUALITY OBJECTIVES
The contaminants brought into a bath from a previous bath because of solution adhering to the load.
First rinse after the finish or plating bath; sometimes called the 'dead rinse' because water is not
allowed to flow into other tanks.

DEPARTMENT OF TRADE AND INDUSTRY
A large cathode is used to plate out metallic impurities or excess additives in the bath. Corrugated surface is use to
accentuate high and low current effects to selectively remove these contaminants.
The process of removing excess additives or metallic impurities from the bath, using very low current density.
