High-Temperature Zinc Anode with a Rectangular Shape.

Specialized High-Temperature Zinc Anode: Protects against intergranular corrosion at elevated temperatures up to 90°C, ideal for liquid cargo tanks, hot subsea pipelines, and heat exchangers.



Common zinc alloys are prone to failure when exposed to temperatures exceeding 60°C, especially in saline mud where intergranular corrosion is a concern. High temperatures can render traditional zinc anodes ineffective or even harmful to the iron and steel structures they are meant to protect through cathodic protection (CP). This is due to passivation and polarity reversal, a critical condition where zinc and steel switch their natural polarities, causing steel to corrode while protecting the zinc anode.

To address the demand for anodes in high-temperature applications, we’ve developed a specialized zinc anode capable of operating effectively at temperatures up to 90°C.

Our high-temperature zinc anode is specifically designed for use in tanks carrying liquid cargo exposed to high temperatures, hot subsea pipelines, and heat exchangers.

Quality Substrate Material
The exceptional electrochemical performance of the high-temperature zinc anodes is guaranteed through meticulous control of the alloy elements’ composition integrated into the zinc substrate.
