MATCOR Marine Anodes - The PW Anode

MATCOR Marine Anodes were developed for the impressed current cathodic protection of structures in a marine environment such as docks, piers, platforms, and submerged structures.  The MATCOR marine anodes are available in several styles, in Mixed Metal Oxide, or Platinum/Titanium, and a variety of sizes.

Use MATCOR Marine Anodes for:

  • Sheet Piling

  • Dock Structures

  • Submerged Pipelines

  • Offshore Pipelines
     

The PW Anode is an ideal anode to be used for the protection of marine structures.  It is hung from the bottom of pier decks, platforms or from brackets.  The anode is protected by a perforated non-metallic housing.  The housing has centralizers for the anode and protects the anode to cable connection.

The PW Anode is available with several types of cable insulation including the MATCOR Kynar/Poly for chlorine resistance.  The PW Anode is available in a number of current outputs.  In addition to the sizes show on the tables, custom configurations are available.  The PW Anode can also be made with a high temperature housing.
