  • About the Edition

    The corrosion behavior of several commercial aluminum sacrificial anode alloys were studied. Laboratory-scale experiments were conducted to establish the galvanic current output characteristics of the alloys when coupled to HY-80 steel in synthetic seawater. Also direct weight loss measurements of corrosion rates and potentiostatic polarization behavior were obtained, and the mode and distribution of corrosive attack on the various anode alloys were studied by scanning electron microscopy. All the alloys studied show similar galvanic current characteristics as a function of time, with an initially high current density which falls off to a stable value, primarily due to the accumulation of calcareous deposits on the cathodes. The corrosion patterns developed by each alloy are distinctly different, both on the macroscopic and microscopic scale.

    Established in , Farwest Corrosion Control Company is a world-class leader in cathodic protection and corrosion control related products, solutions and services. Our product range is extensive, as you will see in this website, and our services include a wide variety of cathodic protection engineering and installation offerings. Microscopic galvanic corrosion can actually occur within an alloy where two different grain compositions are present such as in aluminum alloys. Corrosion can also be initiated by stress cells in which the stressed part of a material acts as the anode and the unstressed part acts as the cathode. This can be seen in metals formed by such. Offshore hydrocarbon production platforms, and drilling rigs are all very susceptible to corrosion form the sea, due to the very nature of the marine environment they are located in. This corrosion can be combated by anti-corrosive paints, epoxy and sacrificial zinc anodes. Aluminum spray can also be used as a corrosion protective. All these anti-corrosive .

It is called a sacrificial anode because it sacrifices itself by becoming corroded instead of a more important metal item or piece of equipment. Sacrificial anodes are made from materials that corrode easily and are deliberately installed in pipes and tanks, leaving the rest of the system.

The exceptional corrosion resistance of aluminum in many environments is due to its protective oxide film which is relatively inert chemically and so provides the passive behavior of aluminum.

In the work of Constantin F. and al. have been studied materials: an AlMn alloy and a sandwich material AlSi/AlMn/AlSi. Aluminum anodes have long been used in the fight against corrosion. Applications for aluminum anodes include ship hulls, tank interiors, offshore structures, submerged pipelines, piers, pilings, etc.

ALOLINE aluminum anodes are designed for optimum performance under a variety of environmental conditions and temperature ranges. Sacrificial aluminum anodes for piers and pilings Deepwater's aluminum pier and piling anodes provide cathodic protection for any type of jetty structure.

Deepwater's aluminum galvanic anodes for piers and pilings are cast in one of two premium aluminum alloys (Deep7 and Deep10) for optimal performance under any conditions.

A galvanic anode, or sacrificial anode, is the main component of a galvanic cathodic protection (CP) system used to protect buried or submerged metal structures from corrosion. They are made from a metal alloy with a more "active" voltage (more negative reduction potential / more positive electrochemical potential) than the metal of the difference in potential.

The Difference Between Zinc and Aluminum Sacrificial Anodes. While commonly referred to simply as “zincs,” sacrificial anodes are in fact available in several different alloys including aluminum, magnesium and zinc, although the latter is the most common.

(All anodes contain alloying and trace elements of other metals.). Zinc-based alloys are among the most evaluated sacrificial anode materials for concrete structures, particularly in the United States.

These anodes can be utilized in many ways and in various forms. The protection capacity of zinc alloy anodes can be limited, however, based both on laboratory and on-field application studies. This practice is also referred to as a sacrificial system, since the galvanic anodes sacrifice themselves to protect the structural steel or pipeline from corrosion.

In the case of aluminum anodes, the reaction at the aluminum surface is: (four aluminum ions plus twelve free electrons) 4Al => 4AL +++ + 12 e.

Galvanic CP can be produced by a galvanic or sacrificial system when limited amounts of current are needed, soil resistivity is low (normally less than 5, ohm/cm) and electric power is limited or not available.

In addition to aluminum anodes, these galvanic or sacrificial anodes are also made in various shapes using alloys of zinc and magnesium. Aluminum Sacficial Anodes for the Marine Industry by Farwest Aluminum anodes have long been used in the fight against corrosion.
