ANODES, SACRIFICIAL ZINC ALLOY
|Publication Date:||15 December 2015|
This specification covers the requirements for zinc anodes (galvanic protectors) in the form of plates, slabs, discs, and rods for corrosion protection (cathodic protection) of metals and alloys. It also includes features of anode design and fabrication, such as cast-in cores for mounting purposes. The material described by this specification contains elements for which the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has set standards for exposure limits. Handling, storage, and application of this material should be in accordance with the 29 CFR 1910 and 1915 and any other safety and health regulations (local or otherwise) which may apply.

The anodes are primarily intended for use in corrosion prevention in seawater of surface ship and submarine hulls, steel and aluminum equipment and structures, sea chests, sonar domes, mooring chains, and the seawater side of condensers and other heat exchangers. The anodes may also be used for corrosion prevention of pipe lines and other installations underground. The use of a particular anode is determined by the nature and geometry of the structure to be protected. Refer to applicable installation instructions for types, amounts, locations, and mounting of anodes.View Less
