Anodes are a critical component of a Cathodic Protection system. Cathodic protection controls the corrosion of a metal surface by making it the cathode of an electrochemical cell. These systems are installed underground and in close proximity of valuable pipe systems. Their purpose is to create a more attractive target for corrosion. As a sacrificial metal, anodes extend the life of underground pipe systems. Over time, anodes will deteriorate and need replacement in order to continue preserving the underground assets.
Anodes are used in countless applications. From highway lighting systems to protecting water mains, they are the most common and effective solution to protecting underground metal assets. Clearsite is an expert in preparing the underground space and appropriate fill for safe and effective anode installation, or replacement.
