MULTIPURPOSE SEGMENTED IMPRESSED CURRENT ANODES (US PATENT #8821698)
Multipurpose segmented MMO coated titanium anodes can be used for a wide variety structures in both soil and liquid mediums such as offshore rigs, tanks, tank bottoms, vessels, and pipelines. These anodes can be installed in a variety of arrangements as well. In soil, various anode groundbed configurations such as horizontal or vertical and shallow or deep can be achieved.
Ucorr's innovative impressed current anode design helps prevent 3 major causes of anode failures including:
Voltage rise on the surface of the MMO catalyst
Non-functioning wire connections
Degradation of insulation around anode wires in anodic environments
Ucorr's impressed current anode systems simplify the design process for engineers by simplifying resistance calculations and anode length requirements.
