Impressed Current Anodes - Graphite

Graphite-AnodesDESCRIPTION

Graphite Anodes are available with either centre end connections, treated or untreated, bare or packaged in coke breeze and with customer specified cable connections.

APPLICATION(S)

Graphite anodes are best suited for use in high resistivity environments where anode current density is not a determining factor. Graphite anodes are equally suited to land or marine applications.
Graphite anodes offer increased output when packaged in carbonaceous backfill.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION

Consumption rates of Graphite Anodes vary with current density, environmental conditions and method of installation. The following are guidance figures only.
