Material Specifications, Manufacturing and Anode Design for Effective Cathodic Protection systems
The materials used for Sacrificial Anode materials are High Purity based metals with very specific alloying requirements and final properties. The base materials, properties & costs of modern sacrificial alloys will be discussed along with the conditions and applications for which they are generally used.
The typical process for manufacturing anodes is presented from a metallurgical standpoint, the alloying, testing poring, and finishing of various product types used for a multitude of applications. The presentation will move to discuss the design of Sacrificial Anode Cathodic Protection systems for a Marine Environment which involves the selection of anode configuration, a detailed calculation process, rules of thumb, and practical experience to design an effective working system.
