anodes have been developed to provide the highest possible current
output combined with the most streamlined anode shape. This ensures
good protection with the minimum of drag on the vessels hull.
Z-Guard Zinc Anodes are intended for use on all types of private
yachts, harbour craft, motor fishing vessels, trawlers, ferries,
coasters, dredgers, cargo ships and tankers.
The most important and internationally accepted standard for the
manufacture and performance of Zinc Alloy Anodes is the U.S Military
Specification NO.18001 K.Z-Guard Zinc Alloy Anodes conform to this
specification. The figure below shows only a small part of the
entire Z-Guard range and special Anode types can be manufactured if
required. Z-Guard Zinc Anodes will also be pleased to provide
detailed recommendations for the protection of any type of vessel
upon receipt of full details of the vessel or floating plant. If
possible please provide a drawing or sketch.
Hull Protection Schemes
1. Protection schemes are designed to prevent corrosion of the
entire immersed hull area including exposed shafts, brackets,
rudders and propellers.
formula: Length water line LWL X(Beam+ Draught)=wetted surface area.
Medium displacement yachts: 3/4. Light displacement yachts: 1/2
