Polymer anode AFLX-1500

Continuous, long-line, flexible, cable-like anode for buried application. Well suited for high resistivity soil.

The polymer anode AFLX-1500 can be used for buried pipelines and tanks. This anode can be used in all kind of soil, but is specially well suited where the resistivity is high or various, and where there are risks for interference with secondary structures. The anode is located in close proximity to the structure to be protected, and provides uniform cathodic protection current to the entire structure.

Polymer anode AFLX-1500

The anode consists of:

  • Copper conductor:  #6 AWG (~13 mm2), serving as a low resistance bus bar to deliver the required current over considerable distance without incurring substantial longitudinal voltage drop.
  • Conductive polymer: Ø13 mm special extrusion, sealing the copper conductor from chemical attack, yet allowing current to flow through it, from the conductor to the environment all along its length.
  • Carbon backfill: Pre-packaged, high performance calcined petroleum carbon backfill, serving as the active matrix in which the electrochemical reactions take place. Designed for minimum of 20 years service life at maximum current output of 52 mA/m.
  • Fabric jacket: Integrated woven, acid resistant and porous jacket holding the carbon backfill in place around the anode.
  • Protective braid: Tough, porous, non-conductive protective braid enhancing the abrasion and damage resistance of the fabric jacket.
