Sacrificial Anode for Ship Structure

When ships sail salty seas, they battle rust. But there’s a trick to keep it away—sacrificial anodes (SACPs).

Here’s how it works: Picture the ship as a hero and the anode as its sidekick. The anode, made of zinc or aluminum, rusts instead of the ship. It’s like taking a hit to keep the hero safe.

SACPs have three parts: the anode, cables, and ship parts like hulls and shafts.As the ship moves, the anode rusts, stopping rust. It’s like an endless shield.The crew checks and replaces the anode to keep the shield strong.

In the end, sacrificial anodes are like ship superheroes, fighting rust and sailing smoothly.
