The galvanic cell in parallel with the industrial cell using the other electrical parameters of working (voltage and current density)--the amount of electrolyte taken through by-pass circuit is extremely small compared to the amount of electrolyte in the industrial bath which allows the work with other process parameters in cell than those in industrial cell.
By disconnecting the power source at the two electrodes of galvanic cell it turns into a spectrophotometric flow cell in by-pass mode that allows continuous, on-line and in-situ measurement of galvanic electrolyte composition and concentration in industrial bath.
Below there is a laboratory galvanic cell for the continuously study of these two sizes without interrupting the galvanic process and without removing the cathode from galvanic bath, figure 1.
