Anodes offer a full range of Marine anodes manufactured with
certificates of Chemical Analysis that can be matched to the anodes
by a corresponding cast number.
We have a
large stock holding in the UK, Europe, Middle East and the Far East,
and so we can supply on a next day delivery service if required.
Z-Guard Zinc Anodes not only design and supply cathodic protection
systems but also manufacture them enabling our customers to reduce
mounted (Hull) Anodes
Hull/flush mounted anodes are used to complement the coating at
areas of exposed steel prolonging the life of the coating. Alloys of
Zinc, Aluminium and Magnesium with the necessary trace elements to
provide correct performance are used for the manufacturing of
Tank anodes (Stand-off) are used to complement the coating at areas
of exposed steel prolonging the life of the coating and structure.
Hydrogen is evolved from aluminium anodes and thermite sparking may
occur when light alloys impact on rusty steel. Therefore there is a
height restriction in cargo/ballast tanks in tankers that anodes are
not located at a height (in m) greater than 27/W where W is the
total mass (in kg) of the anode and insert.
