Cathodic Protection Anodes

Custom Cathodic Protection Anodes

JA Electronics is your source for platinum, rod, graphite, and magnesium anodes. We provide all backfill materials required for galvanic and impressed-current anodes in your cathodic protection system. Contact us with your specifications.

Platinum Anodes

  • Available in customized suspended or thru-hull configuration
  • Available with 200 μin., 300 μin., 400 μin., 600 μin., and 800 μin., platinum thickness
  • Available in ⅜”, ½”, ⅝”, and ¾” rod diameters, of various lengths, to meet your specific requirements.
  • Anode housing body available in Delrin,® UHMW Polyethylene, or Teflon®
  • Thru-hull anodes available with perforated shield on anode element for protecting the anode surface
  • ⅛” platinum wire anode available in custom lengths

Magnesium Anodes

  •  Normally used to prevent corrosion of buried and submerged structures
  • Magnesium has the highest driving potential of any sacrificial anode
  •  H1 alloy prepackaged anodes (specify anode weight, cable size, and length)
  • High potential prepackaged anodes (specify anode weight, cable size, and length)
  • Drivable spike magnesium anodes (1.315″ x 12″ or 1.315″ x 18″)

Graphite Anodes

  • Available with linseed oil, wax, or resin treatment
  • Available as center connect or end connected
  • Anodes available with epoxy end cap or with heat shrink cap
  •  Prepackaged canister anodes available, backfilled with specified Loresco® coke breeze

Silicon Iron Anodes

Cast iron anodes are designed for long life protection in a properly designed impressed current system. Corrosion system engineers optimize the output of the ICCP (impressed current cathodic protection) system to provide sufficient current to control corrosion of the protected structure, at the proper voltage for the metals and environment of the application. Anotec silicon cast iron anodes from JA Electronics withstand drop impact tests to more than twice the height of sand cast anodes, with ISO 9001 conformance to assure strength, chemistry, and production lot traceability.

High silicon cast iron products for ICCP systems are available in a variety of shapes including solid and tubular anodes. Anotec has developed rigid controls for the chill casting process in accordance with ISO 9001 to assure consistent cast iron anode production with improved impact resistance and corrosion resistance.

Mixed Metal Oxide (MMO) Cathodic Protection Anodes

Mixed metal oxide anodes are titanium tubes, rods, or wires with a mixed metal oxide coating. Mixed metal oxide is a crystalline, electrically conductive coating that activates the titanium and enables it to function as an anode.

As a result of the low consumption rate of MMO anodes, the dimensions remain nearly constant during the life of the anode providing consistently low resistance. Other MMO anode types include conductor bar, current distributor, disk, canister, power feed connection, and ribbon. These anodes are also available with a variety of canisters and cables.
