Aluminum Anode for Storage Tank


About product

Aluminum anodes form a protective film inside the storage tank, effectively preventing corrosion caused by accumulated water. This protective film extends the tank’s lifespan, enhances its durability, and contributes to improved industrial production efficiency.

Product Detail

The Design Of Aluminum Anode for Storage Tank

The design of Aluminum Anodes for Storage Tanks requires careful consideration of two main factors:

  • Compatibility with Electrolyte: The sacrificial anode material must be compatible with the tank’s electrolyte in terms of composition and temperature. Options such as aluminum-indium alloy, zinc alloy, and magnesium anodes are suitable for different conditions. Aluminum alloys work well at temperatures exceeding 50℃, magnesium alloys are recommended for drinking water, and aluminum alloys can be used for wastewater containing H2S.
  • Space and Current Distribution: Smaller tanks benefit from trapezoidal or flat-sectioned embedded anodes, while larger tanks can use embedded anodes with various shapes or suspended anodes with trapezoidal or cylindrical sections. Coating the anode surface facing the tank is important for embedded anodes.

The Working Principle Of Aluminum Anode for Storage Tank

The working principle of Aluminum Anodes for corrosion protection in storage tanks with deposited water is based on electrochemical principles. It involves connecting the aluminum anode material to the metal structure inside the tank, forming an electrochemical cell system.

When deposited water is present in the tank, the aluminum on the anode material undergoes an electrochemical reaction. The resulting aluminum oxide forms a sealed oxide film, which prevents direct contact between the deposited water and the tank’s inner wall, thereby reducing the occurrence of corrosion.

Aluminum Anode for Storage Tank Advantage

The advantages of using Aluminum Anodes for corrosion protection in storage tanks with deposited water are as follows:

  • Cost-effectiveness: Aluminum Anodes are a more economical option compared to traditional corrosion prevention methods. They help reduce maintenance expenses significantly, making them a cost-effective choice for protecting storage tanks.
  • Longevity: Aluminum Anodes form an oxide film layer that provides long-lasting protection. This oxide film helps extend the lifespan of the storage tank by preventing corrosion over an extended period.
  • Environmental friendliness: Aluminum anode materials are environmentally friendly and recyclable. They do not cause pollution or harm to the environment, aligning with sustainable development requirements and promoting eco-friendly practices.
  • Safety: The use of Aluminum Anodes ensures safe and reliable corrosion protection for tanks with deposited water. They eliminate the need for manual intervention, reducing operational risks and providing a safer working environment.
