ANODE RETAINING SUPPORT PLUGS AND ANODE SELECTION AND INSTALLATION DESIGN CRITERIA FOR SHIPBOARD CONDENSERS AND HEAT EXCHANGERS
|Publication Date:||4 May 1992|
Appendix A of this specification establishes basic selection and installation criteria for the application of zinc (type ZEP, ZRN, and ZDM) and iron corrosion preventive anodes to copper, nickel, or iron alloy components of shipboard condensers and heat exchangers. This specification covers the threaded plugs used as support plugs for types ZRN and ZDM zinc anodes conforming to MIL-A-18001 and iron anodes.
The support plugs for heat exchanger zinc or iron anodes shall be of the following types and classes as specified (see 6.2):
Anode designation: Type I - (for use with ZRN or iron anodes). Type II - (for use with ZDM anodes). Plug thread designation: Class A - Straight thread O-ring seal. Class B - Tapered pipe thread (replacement use only not for new construction). Class C - Straight thread O-ring plugs for MS16142 or SAE J 1926 type boss.
