Anode Systems Company is a leading anode supplier nationwide. Our on site manufacturing and
distribution warehouse managed by licensed and NACE certified engineers, develop innovative anode
designs exclusive to Anode Systems Co., manage custom orders, and provides expedited shipping coast
to coast. Quality manufacturing of each anode is hand-crafted, like that of our bagged magnesium
anodes: special attention is paid toward centering the anode around compact and uniform
backfill–free of voids. The quality control surrounding the production of our anodes prolongs the
life of the anode and promotes its efficiency–producing a reliable current via exact moisture
The 10 ft solid copper lead wire is carefully inspected for defects in the coating and then
compactly rolled in a tapered design to prevent tangling when unwound. The tightly coiled wire also
protects against damage to neighboring packed anodes or oneself when handling during transport. The
specially engineered cotton bag is virtually indestructible and will not tear under the combined
weight of the anode and backfill.
GALVANIC ANODES - Also known as sacrificial anodes, come in many different
shapes, sizes, and metallic makeup relative to their function. The galvanic anode is best served for
smaller steel structures like that of a single residential propane tank, heater treater, pressure
vessel, or boat hull.
Anode Systems Company offers an H-1 magnesium alloy, “high potential” 99% magnesium alloy, zinc,
cast iron, and aluminum anodes. The most popular of these types is the 17lb high potential magnesium
anode because of its longer life due to its size and ability to power through resistive soil. These
anodes are “consumed” in the cathodic protection process and are sacrificed for the sake of the
steel tank or pipe.
IMPRESSED CURRENT ANODES - These systems are designed for larger surface areas
like that of a commercial grade storage tank or pipeline to provide a uniform current throughout.
Rectifiers aide in this capacity by connecting to the power grid, providing 110 volts of electricity
to the anode system buried below. The DC current can then be adjusted via a dial (above ground) for
optimal and precise current output.
Impressed current anodes are made of a special alloy of cast iron, silicon and chromium and packed
tightly in a coke breeze backfill. Maintenance on this system is recommended once a year by a CP
