The Significance of Pier Anodes

pier anodes

In industries where equipment and vessels come into constant contact with corrosive materials, a protective barrier such as an anode is necessary for the safety of the construct. This is particularly true of the nuclear, medical, construction, and marine industries, which work with hazardous materials or in hazardous areas. For the marine industry, anodes are required to stem corrosion in underwater vessels as well as structures like piers and docks, that come into contact with corrosive salt water. To ensure that docks do not collapse, steel piles and pier anodes are employed to keep the structure stable over a long period of time.

How Pier Anodes Work
Pier anodes are made of metal, most often lead or lead alloys, as well as zinc. The uses for the different anodes vary depending on the industry they are manufactured for and the water that they will be coming into contact with. Anodes are used primarily to absorb wear and tear; thus, they are not expected to last for a long period. The aim of the anode is to protect the surrounding metals from corrosion.
Lead anodes are generally used for electroplating processes - the process where a current is passed through a metal to dissolve it so it coats another metal, thus hardening the overall object and improving its resistance to corrosion.
Zinc anodes are more commonly used on vessels such as ships and smaller watercrafts, and even large marine constructions, marine piers, and pipelines. Zinc anodes are also called 'sacrificial anodes because the anodes trap the corrosive seawater, thus degrading over a period of time, while protecting the metal underneath. Because of zinc's natural resistance to saltwater, over and above other metals, pier anodes suppliers recommend zinc anodes for marine and construction use.
Finding a Pier Anode Supplier
As the anode is the lynchpin of a sturdy structure, it is important to find a pier anodes supplier that uses top quality metal in their anode manufacturing. Since not all metal anodes work with all types of water, the supplier needs to have a vast knowledge base to ensure that the right product is being used in the right environment.
For example, though zinc has high resistance to saltwater, it is not conducive to fresh water, whereas aluminum has the capacity to withstand the corrosiveness of fresh water. Lead is good for conducting electricity, as are lead alloys of lead and tin, or lead and silver, but is not as useful in water.
Experienced pier anodes suppliers will be able to manufacture the product that the company needs after weighing several different factors and judging what will be best suited for the area the product will be used in.
Before purchasing pier anodes for your industry, it is highly recommended that you contact professionals with long-standing experience for top quality products and advice.
