IAT manufactures anodes for numerous applications, in all possible shapes and geometries. Contact us to select the best coating for your application.
Steel constructions which are in contact with (sea)water will start to corrode at some point. In order to prevent this, the object can be protected by means of cathodic protection. Hereby the steel object is connected as a cathode and an anode is introduced in the system to close the electrical loop.
IAT manufactures anodes in two varieties. The first one is the so called Mixed Metal Oxide (MMO) Titanium anode, consisting of a mixture of two (or more) metal oxides, produced in a thermal process. The most commonly used versions are mixtures of Iridium-Tantalum Oxide and Ruthenium-Titanium Oxide. Also MMO versions of three metal oxides are possible, for instance Ruthenium-Iridium-Titanium Oxide. The second variety is galvanic Platinum, which still has specific applications where it is competitive with MMO or even the only possibility. This type of coating is produced in an electrochemical process.
We have the production facilities to machine and weld Titanium, and to coat the Titanium substrates with a MMO coating or to platinise it, according to your specifications and drawings.
MMO Titanium anodes
Titanium MMO anodes can be made with a broad variety of compositions, each with it own performance and characteristics, tailored for a specific application. Contact us to select the best coating for your application.
Platinised Titanium anodes
Platinised Titanium coating are still being competitive to MMO and being used in certain applications. Contact us to select the best coating for your application.
Besides the anodes, IAT can supply peripherical articles which are necessary for your operations. Click for examples.
