Anomet Products, a US-based manufacturer of innovative clad-metal wire composite solutions, offers 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 for providing impressed current protection with lower operating current densities,” says a spokesman for the company.
Far 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, he adds.
Offered in many low-consumption sizes and electrical resistances, Anomet Platinum Clad Anodes can range from 0.5 mm to 25.4 mm (0.021 to 1 inches) in diameter as wire and rod with platinum thickness from 0.254 microns to 15.24 microns (10 to 600 micro-inches), depending upon the application. Available as rolls, squares, and precut circles, the woven mesh can be supplied up to 24 inches or 609.6 mm wide.
Anomet Platinum Clad Anodes are priced according to configuration and quantity.
