Straight Aluminium Hull Anode With Single Strap

Aluminum hull anode provides high amperage protection for oceangoing vessels against corrosion.



Ships are constantly exposed to water and humid conditions, making them highly vulnerable to corrosion. Corrosion poses a significant threat to both the main structure of the ship and its machinery, ranging from the hull to the smallest operational equipment.

Known for its light weight and high amperage output, this aluminum hull anode with a straight shape offers exceptional protection for oceangoing vessels. Its cast-in galvanized steel core enables direct welding to the protected steel structure, ensuring a secure and dependable connection.

This aluminium hul anode provides a stable performance in salt and brackish/estuarine waters as its operating potential is kept between -1.05 to -1.10 volts relative to saturated calomel electrode(SCE).

Technical Measurement Performance
Open Circuit Voltage (-V) 1.10 min.
Closed Circuit Voltage (-V) 1.05 min.
Current Capacity 1135 A.h/lbs (2500 A.h/kg)
Current Efficiency 90% min.
Consumption Rate 7.6 lbs/A·y (3.4 kg/A·y)

Much Lighter in Weight
The aluminum hull anode’s lower density compared to zinc makes it lighter and more manageable during installation.

Strict Quality Control
Our aluminum hull anode undergoes rigorous manufacturing, inspection, and testing procedures to meet ISO 9001:2015 standards, ensuring exceptional quality.
