- Aluminium anodes can be utilized for the defence of tanks and ship structures. They additionally have a particular application in the shield of subsea pipelines, oil apparatuses and submersibles.
- The electrochemical recital of aluminium sorts it as an attractive galvanic anode material, particularly in low resistivity usage such as seawater.
- Aluminium’s lower driving potential and high current capacity per pound make it optimal for comprehensive life saline cathodic protection systems.
- Aluminum anodes shall exhibit closed circuit potential, when immersed in “sea water” at ambient temperature, of 1050 mV with reference to Ag/AgCl electrode.
- Aluminum anodes shall conform to the following composition:
Zinc 2.5 to 5.75% Iron < 0.09% Silica < 0.12% Copper < 0.003% Indium 0.015 0.040% Cadmium < 0.002% Aluminium Balance
In addition to the standard compositions mentioned above, Transcend also provides to other compositions to suit the requirements of various sites, structures and environment.
