Anomet Products (Shrewsbury, Massachusetts) has introduced a line of platinum-clad anode products that are metallurgically bonded and void-free to provide long lasting cathodic protection.
Anomet Platinum Clad Anodes feature a full metallurgical bond of platinum or niobium over a copper core and are dimensionally stable, which reportedly provides impressed current protection with lower operating current densities. According to the company, they are more durable than mixed metal oxide (MMO) and other plated anodes; they can be supplied as rod, wire, strip and mesh in a variety of configurations.
Offered in many low-consumption sizes and electrical resistances, Anomet Platinum Clad Anodes can range from 0.021″ to 1″ dia. (0.5 mm to 25.4 mm) as wire and rod with platinum thickness from 10 to 600 micro-inches (0.254µ to 15.24µ), depending upon the application. Available as rolls, squares and precut circles, the woven mesh can be supplied up to 24″ W (609.6 mm).
Anomet Platinum Clad Anodes are priced according to configuration and quantity, and price quotations and samples are available upon request.
