Zinc Anodes

Pencil Anode Zinc anodes are used to protect the metallic parts of boats and other water vessels from electrolysis-caused corrosion. Zinc is a sacrificial anode, which means it oxidizes quicker than the metal it is protecting, thus protecting the iron from corroding. At Mayer Alloys, we have zinc anodes available in weld-on and bolt-on mounting systems. Additional applications may include anode configurations such as disk, plates, or other geometries.

Types of Zinc Anodes

  • Hull Anodes
  • Ballast Tank Anodes
  • Anodes for Bulkheads
  • Anodes for Piers and Pilings
  • Bracelet Anodes
  • Heat Exchanger/Condenser Anodes
  • Soil Anodes
  • Pencil Anodes

These types of zinc anodes are designed to protect ships, barges, tankers, and larger vessels. Some can be used on the walls within the hull of a ship, container, or vehicle. Others can be used around docks, harbors, and pipelines, as well as underwater, underground, and on heat transfer equipment. Zinc Anodes are manufactured to the latest Mil-Spec and are also covered by the ASTM-418-95 Type I Alloy. Other types of Zinc Anode Alloys manufactured would meet or exceed the latest ASTM-418-95 Type II Alloy.
